Apologies – Gumtree is doing something crazy with the spacing. Please read to the end of this post before replying. You must send a full, personalized, motivational letter. Do NOT just send a “I'm interested, please contact me” automated email.
Sugar Bay is a children's holiday resort, based on the American Summer Camp concept, up on the KZN north coast. We are looking for a hard-working, fast-learner with handyman experience to join our maintenance team. You need to speak fluent English, have a good concept of mathematics/ logic and be keen to work hard and apply yourself. This position suits a younger person with no family commitments as it requires relocation to communal accommodation in Zinkwazi Beach.

Reasons for leaving each position of employment.
