Our G.Os and G.Es get so much more than just a job. At Club Med, they get to enjoy enriching experiences which transform them. They develop on so many levels, exceed their limits and make friends for life, in what is a truly unique setting and exceptional place to work.
Not just a job but an experience to be enjoyed
Based on our firm belief that happy G.Os and G.Es make for happy G.Ms, Club Med offers a unique careers model and approach to employability.
This allows staff to progress at the company and experience the joy of realising their full potential.
*G.O = Gentils Organisateurs (organisers), G.E = Gentils Employés (employees), G.M = Gentils Membres (guests)
As part of programmes and at shows, our G.Os and G.Es take centre stage thanks to their personality, whilst developing their leadership and communication skills.
They are encouraged to surpass themselves in order to gain self-confidence and self-assurance, and become more daring and willing to try new experiences.
*Since 2014, an internal survey, ‘Voice’, has been in place for all our G.Os and G.Es around the world, the response rate being 71%.
‘Voice’ is available in 20 languages, with an innovative audio version for those who struggle with reading.
