    You can't start until you have been discharged from hospital after your by-pass op-charisma bypass that is!

    Hello

    We too are planning to become caravan club wardens within the next 5 years, the caravan club website explains the procedure, but does say that you can wait quite a long time for a vacancy to arise. Would love to hear from anyone else who has already done this and how long they waited for a vacancy to come a long:Smile:

    wardens

    We have chatted to quite a few wardens about how they got into the job.
    Very interesting some of the answers, though the selection process isn`t an easy ride, apparently they bring in actors and simulate a problem situation.

    Once selected getting a position can depend on how flexible you are in which areas you are willing to accept, one couple we spoke to were told a minimum of 18mths.
    They were then offered a site 2 weeks later as they said they didn`t mind where they went.

    Slightly unfair..........I have met one or two who are slightly officious....but the vast majority have been really brilliant.................totally friendly and helpful.
    I think the stereotype of caravan club sites being over regimented and unfriendly.......is way out of date. But I expect some one will be along with tales that Adoft Hitler has been reincarnated in the guise of a warden somewhere or other........name names please:Smile:

    Neither have we but we have seen some at this side of the counter that would make a saint swear


    Next time you get a horrid warden look in the mirror and hope it was the camper before you that wound him up and not you

    Good point...........I remember a warden getting a right mouthful by a guy who smelt of drink..........at the Cambridge CC site ........a right bolshy git
    and he went on to say he would report the warden to his mate who was a director of the CC.......the warden a lovely chap had allocated this guy a pitch he didnt like.... unusual for the CC but its policy at that site because its all cramped cul de sacs and you cant easily drive around it...and they detailed the policy on a notice on the door.

    Yes some of the members ( as always) let the side down ..I was talking to a CC warden a couple of weeks ago....in kent and he said in the summer there are a large number of parents who go out for the day and leave their little darlings on site to run wild with their new made mates for the best part of the day .

    Shocked of Sussex !!! What's the world coming to !!!!!

    We went to one of their assessment days, they didn't want us, was pleased about that!
    As a warden you get one day off per week, you are on call 24 hrs.
    We decided to find campsites that want extra help in high season, we've done 4 seasons so far just cleaning 2 hrs a day!

    There are a couple of Funsters I know who have worked for the CCC as wardens for a couple of years. @crizatuk and @Theonlysue
    Send them a PM and ask them how they got their jobs and if they enjoyed it or not. I'm sure they'd be happy to share their experiences.

    Have seen the warden jobs where they want a couple to work 2 to 3 hours a day each in exchange for a pitch. At minimum wage it seems a very expensive pitch, do they get people to do it ?
