THE PRODUCTION TEAM

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN IBIZA?

It’s amazing, you move to this magical island and become part of a giant family working for Rocks! It is tough, but it is also very rewarding. No matter what department you work in be it production or retail, whether you’re a director or bar staff, everyone is equal and that really makes a difference for me.

WHY IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

Some of the biggest events in Ibiza happen here, we’ve seen legendary names such as Craig David, Rudimental and Anne-Marie just in the past year, it feels great to be part of history being made, looking back and saying “I was there, I helped make that happen!”

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN PRODUCTION?

It’s long hours and really hard work, I have to admit, but it’s really worth it to see the final event in full swing that the team have spent weeks if not months working on and preparing for. That feeling is something you can’t compare.

THE RETAIL SALES TEAM

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN IBIZA?

“Absolutely amazing. Coming to live in an island where you don’t know anyone is scary so I thanked my lucky stars that I had a job in a place that was like a little family and who all genuinely cared about each other.  You all go through the same experience together and I made the most amazing memories in the last 6 months. I count the people in them as friends I’ll have for life! Ibiza Rocks is definitely a home away from Home.”

WHY IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

“I choose Ibiza Rocks mainly for its name and what they do. The effort that goes into those pool parties’s every-week is amazing!  Every week feels like the first one all over again and it feels good to be part of the brand in that way because they really are unforgettable. It’s December and I still watch videos of the Elrow pool party’s over and over, literally the 2 best days of my life. “

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN MERCHANDISE?

“I loved my Merchandise Team family and job. The best moments where after pool party’s especially Craig David we found really busy and it was good that we could interact with the guests after the events to see how they enjoyed them. Being after pool party’s you can imagine people are pretty drunk and intrigued by merchandise so it gives us a bit of comedy as well.”

An unforgettable experience, the most magical and crazy summer where you are living and working with your best friends who are all in the same boat. The whole 5 months goes by so quickly and you find yourself waiting the winter out until you can return to the amazing island and be reunited with your favourite places and people to make another summer of memories.

WHY IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

I had never been to Ibiza before my season but I knew it was somewhere I’d call home as soon as I got there. The one name I’d heard time and time again was Ibiza Rocks, not only because of it’s amazing pool parties and line ups, but because of how they treat their staff and offer great training and job progression. It’s somewhere you’re proud to work and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE IN THE VIP TEAM?

Ibiza Rocks VIP is like being apart of one big mental family, everyone supports one another but has the best fun, a normal 9-5 will never be the same again.  It can be tough working long days in the sun and having to multitask dealing with many demanding customers at once, but the rewards are amazing. most of the customers are like minded people who want to get to know you and stay in touch with you.

THE HOST TEAM

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WORK IN IBIZA?

“Working in Ibiza is like nowhere else in the world (and I’ve lived in New York and London). The atmosphere around the island is amazing, you can go from working during the day to being on a sunset boat and to a super club after! Many people make the misconception that Ibiza is just about partying, which is a big part of it, but there is actually so much more! On your days off you can visit stunning beaches, hippy markets and Es Vedra to name a few! Plus you get to be constantly tanned. What more do you want?”

WHY IBIZA ROCKS HOTEL?

“Ibiza Rocks is such a well established brand, from the big names they have hosted to their diverse offering of events, I knew straight away when I was going to work in Ibiza it was going to be for them.. and now Ibiza Rocks is like my family, I’ve been here for almost two years now!”
