EF is searching for Residence Managers this summer. This would be the perfect job to boost your CV by gaining management experience while working in an international company!
What will you be doing?
Working with the summer management team to deliver an exceptional experience to our students. You would have the overall responsibility for a residence and the students who are staying there. Your job is to support a team of international leaders to ensure our students have a Home Away from Home experience.

You will supervise a team of leaders and ensure that residence staff work in harmony with your team. You will liaise with residence suppliers on anything from cleaning to theme events and safety. This is a truly memorable experience, and an opportunity for you to be a part of a truly international team in delivering a world-class product.

After a summer of working as a Residence Manager, you will leave having created truly amazing memories for your students and managed a team of international staff. You will expand your organisational skills and ability to work in a fast-paced environment.
