Becoming a PGL Tour Leader is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in French culture and get involved with one of PGL’s most popular school trips – tailor-made French study tours to the wonderful city of Paris. With tours to the majestic Eiffel Tower, cruises down the Seine River or visits to the Louvre, this is an amazing opportunity for you to fine tune your French skills.

Whilst working in a fun and relaxed, yet hands on environment our Tour Leaders are enthusiastic, French speakers who accompany groups on amazing trips to Paris and around northern France.

You'll guide and inspire our guests as they revel in another culture. From historic landmarks to rustic markets, you'll accompany visiting school groups on excursions to famous places of interest. Your organisation and communication skills will really get the chance to shine as our Tour Leaders ensure trips run smoothly and that our guests have a great time.

Whether it’s the thrill of opening up a whole new world of learning to our guests or discovering little pockets of France you never knew existed; as a PGL Tour Leader your passion for French will grow exponentially.

Key responsibilities:

As a PGL Tour Leader you will liaise with the Party Leader to coordinate their weekly itinerary. Once agreed, you will be responsible for ensuring travel is arranged and tickets are booked etc. You will accompany the group on their excursions and ensure that that their visits run as smoothly as possible.

In addition to this you will be heavily involved in organising and running their evening entertainment programme. As not every group has a full programme of visits you will also be trained to delivery PGL's core adventure activities.


Ideally we are looking for applications from confident French speakers, as you will be the person the party leader and the children rely on to ensure their tour runs smoothly. In addition to language skills, you will need to be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Excellent organisation skills.
  • Previous experience of working with children in either a voluntary or paid capacity.
  • The ability to work as part of a team.
  • Knowledge of the country you'll be working in will also be advantageous as will previous experience of visiting the major landmarks and tourist attractions.

Successful applicants are required to undergo an enhanced DBS disclosure, which PGL will pay for. You need to possess the legal right to live and work in the UK to be considered for employment with PGL. PGL is committed to the principles of equality and diversity and welcome applicants from all sectors of the community.
