Adam, Bath (Downside) Admin Assistant
"I've worked for Kings for four summers now, the first three years as a teacher and last summer as an assistant to the on-site management.
The atmosphere at the camps has always been a really warm and welcoming one — for the staff as well as the kids. It differs to normal EFL teaching in that you have such a mix of nationalities to work with, which is always interesting. The diversity of the backgrounds of the people you meet has always been a big draw for me, and the different senses of humour of the students makes lessons great fun.
From a monetary perspective, the fact you live on campus and are fed on-site means you can save a good deal of what you make.
The best thing about Kings is the family feel that develops over the six weeks. You can tell when the kids are leaving that they really don't want to and you've been a part of a lasting experience in their lives, and the staff are always lovely.
To someone considering working for Kings Summer, I'd say it's long hours, and be prepared for that, but if you don't enjoy your work then this isn't the job for you anyway. Being positive and proactive are qualities that you would expect to find in people who work for Kings.
Hope to see you this summer!"

Kings is unique. To me it represents quality and care, and I have some of the best times being a part of what they do…
There is a highly professional atmosphere, and plenty of opportunity for professional development…
