Careers at Bucksmore

Seasonal Vacancies

First of all, we would like to thank you for your interest in applying to work for Bucksmore in 2024. In 2023, we welcomed over 1400 students to our programmes, and we could not have done it without the outstanding dedication, enthusiasm and passion of our staff.

Working in summer schools is a rewarding experience for both students and staff, and Bucksmore aims to make our courses ones that our students never forget. The Bucksmore philosophy is for students to mix with their fellow students and staff wherever possible to make their time with us a rich cultural experience.

Students attend different academic courses (receiving English language tuition or tutor-led classes) but all take part in a comprehensive activity programme including up to two full day-excursions and one half-day trip every week. There are activities every afternoon and evening with the excursions and trips spread throughout the working week.
