Leger Holidays: Battlefield Guides Wanted

Leger Holidays is the leading UK Battlefield Tour Operator for adults and we have been organising specialist battlefield tours since 1997. Annually we take thousands of people to the battlefields and have a much envied and respected group of battlefield historians who guide our regular tours.

The year 2014 sees a number of anniversaries including the Great War Centenary and the 70th Anniversary of the Normandy landings.

As we have very high demand for this period, we are currently looking to recruit battlefield guides to work on the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, a tour that departs just prior to the 6th June 2014, and also a special tour around the same period that covers aspects of both WW1 and WW2.

Prospective guides need to be physically fit, aged 21 or over, have a full UK passport, the right to work within the EU, and have no criminal convictions.

Applicants must have a passion for military history, a good knowledge of operations on D-Day and in Normandy in 1944, knowledge of the Normandy battlefields as they are today and ability to project their knowledge to a group in a meaningful way. Those for the combined WW1 and WW2 tour need to have a good knowledge of these periods and battlefields in Flanders, at Dunkirk and in Normandy.

Applicants should send a covering email introducing themselves and attaching an up to date CV to:

Interviews will be held in either London or Rotherham during the winter of 2013/14 and will be conducted by Paul Reed. In some cases interview by Skype or Facetime is also possible.

The closing date for applications is 31st October 2013.
