Christian Manalo – Swimming Pool Assistant Manager

The beauty of Butlin’s is we really like people who like people. Just ask Christian.

When Christian took his first job as a lifeguard at our Minehead resort, he thought he would only be staying for two months, but 9 years later he’s still here, still happy and a true Butlin’s person. Over his first two seasons he really found his feet, and soon became a Team Leader – progressing to Swimming Pool Assistant Manager when he was ready. He’s got a real talent for bringing out the best in people and helping them develop their careers, just like he did. He says that he really loves seeing families having a great time on holiday, and he gets a real buzz from meeting new people. In fact, he met his wife at Butlin’s and they are expecting their first Butlin’s baby!

Like all our passionate Managers, Christian will be happy to tell you: if you give our guests a great time we’ll give you the opportunity of a lifetime.
