We’re straight-forward. We’re the ones in orange and we’ve got nothing to hide. Our energy and passion for life are contagious. We love people.
We believe what makes us special is contradiction. Acttiv blends lots of points of view, motivations and diverse tastes, and that’s our winning formula. Nuances. Our ability to understand others, to integrate them and allow them to express their own opinions.
He who dares, wins, goes the expression, and it describes Javi perfectly. His courage stands out to us because he knows how to convince us that if we want to do something, we’re capable of it! That’s Javi, personally and professionally. His ultimate challenge, which he has succeeded in doing, has been to climb his first three-thousander : the Néouvielle peak. And what’s left!
Charo is generosity incarnate for all of us. She transmits calmness and goodness. Her sincere smile speaks by itself, and she can say everything with just a gesture: she asks how she can help you, and you know she’ll give you a hand if you need it. She shows how colleagues become friends.
Carmen gets straight to the point. As she finds solutions to problems so easily, she doesn’t need to beat about the bush. That’s what she’s like, calm and effective, meaning that, despite running the most boisterous team in the Company – Human Resources – she’s able to find moments of tranquillity and read tomes at least three centimetres thick. No less.
Juan’s a serious guy with a great sense of humour – how is that combination possible? We still don’t know but we think it’s because of his sensitivity. His calmness and staggering capacity for work brings stability to all of us. He loves playing golf but what makes him as excited as a little kid is getting ready for his next trip, always to an exotic destination.
Never arrive late if you’re meeting up with him. Behind his enthusiasm for good presentation and punctuality hides a veteran entertainer and a great dancer. Chema exemplifies that quintessential quality in an entertainer: versatility. He’s our reference, the example we look to when we get distracted and need reminded that cultivating our disparate talents makes us stronger.
We are friendly and direct, natural and transparent. We adore working in a team in an international environment. We’re incapable of hanging about doing nothing; we’re multitalented and always keen to start new initiatives.
Ali doesn’t play American football, she plays flag football, which is played without tackling. She’s just missing the two flags on either side of the belt. In flag football, to arrest a move you don’t throw the player to the ground but you steal one of their flags. This sport has all of the adrenalin but loads more class than American football. Perfect for Ali. Her team calls her: Madrid Capitals.
Lorena is a psychologist specialising in Human Resources, and an incredibly promising DJ whose speciality is Deep House – an unusual but great combination! She just needs a strong stage name in order to triumph. She’s already worked as a DJ in many bars and we all do what we can to help her to find her pseudonym but we never give it our all, because we really like having her around and we don’t want fame to steal such a nice colleague from us.
As her Kawasaki Z800 couldn’t fit in the photo, she had to pose with her helmet. Lies is dynamic and she’s always on the move. She’s an all-terrain athlete: she climbs, runs, plays paddle tennis – she does whatever sport comes her way. In winter she comes to work on her motorbike, in summer, on her bicycle.
He was born in Germany into a German family, but that’s all that links Alex to Germany. At 6 years old he moved to Dénia and he’s completely integrated into Spanish culture. When he visits Germany he feels like a foreigner and it’s at electronic dance music parties where he feels at home.
What Manolos are to Carrie Bradshaw, trainers are to Tati. Tati’s a fashionista too, but unlike for Carrie, for Tati style and comfort always go hand in hand. How to dress in the latest trends, elegantly and comfortably? Like Carrie, she should have her own column, then she could tell us how she manages it.
Half Danish and half Russian, she loves Spain. Her interest in different cultures is obvious in her cooking. She makes as much sushi as she does arroz con calamares (rice and squid). When she does Russian cuisine she makes great pelmeni, a type of ravioli, and “Napoleon cake”.
David has been an entertainer, an entertainment leader and now he’s working in Acttiv’s HR department. Relocation, his daughter and his new position must have left him in such a state of shock that he decided to pose with this giant red feather boa, as the object that best represents his personality. We all think that it actually suits him really well and we’ve suggested that he uses it as a scarf to protect him from Madrid’s cold winters.
Ilse is addicted to sport. She’s played football since the age of 7. She studied Sports and Physical Activities in her native Holland and when she was working as an entertainer she got all her guests into shape. While she’s settling into Madrid, she’s looking for a football team to join in the coming season, and going to the gym 3 to 5 times a week. She uses the resistance band she’s posing with in the photo to exercise in her own room, whenever she wants.
María is a rock chick from Seville. Her leather jacket, and her very long hair – you can imagine it in the moshpit! – are her talismans for any concert. Organised and methodical, she jealously guards all her old tickets. They’re so precious to her that she only brought copies for the photo, not the originals. “Just in case!” she says. “Who knows what might happen!”
Diego is a jack-of-all-trades. He plays bass in a band, performs traditional dances from his beloved Peru, and is mad about tattoos, of which he has three. As he’ll show you, they’re all biomechanical and bioorganic designs. Out of all his hobbies and interests, he chose his dance group for the photo. The jacket is from the Folk Dance Association RKP; RKP stands for Riqcharyi Kullay Peru. Sound a bit strange? It’s written in Quechua, and the translation is “Wake up, Peru.”
How come he’s posing with a Samurai sword? We all asked ourselves this when we saw his photo and he explained very matter-of-factly that for many years he studied traditional Japanese martial arts. History is his passion and the katana isn’t just a weapon, it’s also something that illustrates past ways of life.
Loli’s alway feeling the cold. We used to say that yes, it was cold, but no, it wasn’t cold in the office. The argument was settled once and for all the day she brought in her heater. Loli embraced it because she’s very fond of it but be in no doubt, what she loves more than anything are her two children: Hugo and Lara.
He didn’t hesitate. He had to pose with his racquet. If he’s not resolving ups and downs in the office, Juanma is playing paddle tennis and what’s clear is that he’s competitive. He likes to win.
Doesn’t Isabel have a dreamy gaze in the photo? That’s because she’s travelling in her imagination to Neverland. Peter Pan was the first film she watched with her family when her dad bought a Super 8 projector for their house. Since then, she’s been mad about movies. Not a week goes by that she doesn’t watch a film at home or go to the cinema.
There’s no event in the world that could take Leticia from Pamplona on July 7th. She’s been living in Madrid for more than 10 years but she’s left her heart in her beloved home town and every July she dresses in red and white for the San Fermín festivities. Look carefully and you’ll see that she has even embroidered her name on the traditional red handkerchief she’s wearing, the pañuelico. Viva San Fermín!
Virginia is as enthusiastic in her day-to-day as she is energetic in her jumping in the photo, and that’s saying something, as she saves her best jumps for concerts. She’s decided to pose with a sign that she was given at her first festival and which she naturally brought to Madrid from her native Murcia. We wonder if she’s moved city bringing all the musical memories of the concerts that she’s been to.
She loves the beach and enjoys the sun, but don’t let those sandals and sarong fool you. Lori directs the Training and Product department with diligence, patience and an enviable smile. She really likes her training duties, so much so that she enjoys one of her students being promoted even more than the launch of a new evening show.
It’s not Ana, it’s Anita. And Anita lives with her dog Thai, a canary mastiff weighing 52 kilos. So if Anita, she of the diminutive, who appears not to have broken a plate in her life, knows how to tame a beast like Thai, imagine how easy it is for her to win over the students on all our initiation courses.
Backpack, sunglasses and map in hand. That’s her for life. Travelling, but also living because here she’s seen as a nomad. Recently landed in Madrid, born in Valladolid, her career in entertainment has taken her to Catalonia, Menorca, the Canary Islands, Lanzarote and Cuba.
This Cuban salsa dancer lives at a fast pace. Rhymes, compliments and improvised rap songs are always spilling from his lips. To capture his essence in the photo, we knew we had to catch him while he was dancing. Karell is unstoppable and bursting with creativity.
Artists can’t resist any form of expression. So Marcos is an illustrator, creator of animated short films and plays the drums. He also loves all sports that allow him to connect with nature (even risky ones) such as skiing and traditional climbing. Without Marcos and his eagerness for trying new things, Sincro would never have been possible.
Javi, fondly known as Monti (from his surname Montejo), couldn’t make up his mind which object to pose with. He couldn’t decide between what he calls his “toys”: his bike, surfboard, kite and finally his kitesurf board. So the idea of the IT guy always sitting in his chair in front of a keyboard clearly doesn’t work in his case. Monti is in shape because he practises all possible sports, and he always says something to make us smile when we call him in a state because our computer won’t respond.
Having a sweet tooth, Emma naturally loves chocolate. Buying the cake for the photo was a great excuse to be able to enjoy it afterwards. She had to choose the one that had little animal characters on it because she loves nature. She’s happy when she gets out of the city, where, far from any mobile phone reception, she discovers new walking trails.
What a rascal she looks in the photo! Like everyone from Valencia, Lidia is mad about fireworks. The smell of gunpowder means fiestas for her and during the days leading up to Fallas, the Valencian springtime festival, she already feels the feverishness and excitement. She enjoys doing the things she loves now as much as when she first discovered them, and that’s how it’s been with entertainment. Since 1998 she’s been hooked on the world of entertaining holidaymakers and no one but no one will ever get her off the stages.
He’s the guy in the hat. He’s a very classy hat wearer, he’s got more than a dozen and if he feels like it, he can make them move with just a waggle of his eyebrow. His natural elegance means that he can carry off the unexpected, like a Hello Kitty tattoo hidden between the Maori designs that cover his legs.
They call him “The Cardboard Whisperer”. We don’t know if he speaks to cardboard, or rather, if he enchants it, but he does do magic with it. He enjoys tuning into his favourite music and creating decorations that are out of this world. As he also really likes to cook, he wanted to pose with a fork and spoon. We’ve recommended that he use steel pans on the stove to avoid accidents.
Fabio is an excellent cook. He makes sure to apply the principles of cooking to entertainment: he always selects the best raw materials, and combines tradition and creativity in equal parts. Like any good Italian, his speciality is pasta. He enjoys cooking for his guests while sipping a glass of Sicilian wine. He knows how to look after himself, eating well and keeping in shape. He manages to go running every day and has been practising krav magá, a form of self-defence training, for years.
Andrew is posing in his riding trousers. He’s English, and what’s more he’s an English gentleman. You’d think he became passionate about riding in his native country but, by the vagaries of chance, he in fact learned to ride a horse in Mallorca while working as an entertainer. There happened to be an equestrian trail very close to the hotel, and he liked it – maybe it reminded him of his country of birth.
She’s not posing as a boxer, but as a fighter. She loves boxing as a hobby and it helps her to combat stress. However, she prefers being described as a fighter because she rises to challenges without needing to use her fists. She knows that work and perseverance are her most useful tools for achieving her personal goals.
Jorge exudes sound judgement and his smile is sincere. Jorge is posing with Bruno, the Persian cat who’s been living with Jorge for a year, since the kitty became homeless. Jorge listens to his heart and acts accordingly; Bruno’s an example of that. It was the same with entertainment, when, after working as a hotel receptionist for four years, Jorge decided to turn his career around.
Marcos looks fantastic in a lopapeysa. Still don’t know what a lopapeysa is? It’s the traditional Icelandic sweater! The lopapeysa is a very warm garment made with lopi, the wool of Icelandic sheep. Marcos will tell you all about it, and lots more Icelandic curiosities. He adores Iceland; he used to live there and he goes back whenever he can.
She talks a lot! That’s why she’s decided to pose with the RAE dictionary (the official dictionary of the Spanish language). She says it’s a great metaphor for her ability to talk the hind legs off a donkey and for why she sometimes behaves like a know-it-all. Always astute and perceptive when she talks, we love that she’s also sure to make us laugh. You’re guaranteed to have fun when you’re spending time with her.
What’s routine again? It’s not a word that features in this active Dutch girl’s voacabulary. She’s a whirlwind of energy, and also sensitivity, and always loyal to her friends. Chantal runs all the instructor-led fitness classes, such as Cardio Dance, GAP and Body Tonic, and when she comes out the gym she cools down with something sweet. Candyfloss is her favourite!
You can tell from that gigantic pizza that he’s Italian. He’s very proud of his origins but he’s actually a nomad. He travels all the time; for now, it’s Mallorca that’s bagged him, and he’s happy. He never does anything by halves, either he gives his all…or he gives his all! He’s a rock star on stage, and his amazing people skills, his dedication to entertainment and to doing a good job are why we all agree that it’s a pleasure to work with him.
This Belgian coordinator, who loves entertainment, is always tangled up in cameras, flashes and editing programmes. At Acttiv we decided to unite his two passions in one job description and the challenge delights him – that’s what he thrives on. He’s a sucker for punishment! In Mallorca he’ll not only supervise the entertainment programmes of several hotels but he’ll also document his work with images and videos.
“I want to be an octopus and have eight arms!” For Itzi (as she’s used to us calling her), this seafood delicacy is the perfect object to pose with, as it unites her Galician origin, her love of the sea and her ability to juggle a thousand tasks at once. It’s thanks to her passionate interest in sports and dance that she’s spent her first few seasons at Acttiv working as an entertainer. Now she’s embracing the challenge of becoming a coordinator and we’re sure that she won’t need eight arms to succeed in this new phase.
David loves performance and portraying different characters. He conspires to create great entertainment with other entertainers and he’s also sincere, modest, and has an enormous sense of responsibility. These virtues earned him the respect of the teams he ran as entertainment leader and he now performs his job of coordinator very conscientiously.
Red is her favourite colour. She identifies with the vitality, fearlessness and optimistic attitude that this colour symbolises. Julie gets high on courage and her innate confidence means she’ll try anything, going from heels to climbing shoes in a matter of hours. She adores acrobatics, practises AcroYoga and dances with silks.
Amaia doesn’t feel comfortable reading an ebook; she still enjoys the smell of books and the touch of the pages. Like in the photo, she’s used to being surrounded by books because she’s always combined work with studying. She sometimes reads novels but what really absorbs her are essays on her areas of interest: social education, psychology and psychopedagogy.
In common with many Italians, coffee is a ritual for him. His favourite is espresso with no sugar. As it should be. He’ll make you one when it’s necessary. Emi’s not slow to give a hand, he’s always ready to help. This makes him a great team player and an excellent leader who knows how to communicate optimism and the desire to do a good job.
She’s so exacting that she should be called G.I. Jane, but the heart and soul she puts into everything she does has turned her into a genuine leader. You always see her with her mobile phone glued to her ear because that’s her day-to-day reality, and even in the middle of the photo shoot she had to answer a call. The advantage of that was that she’s posing in a very natural way.
This Canary Islands lad started out carrying a bouncy castle all around Gran Canaria and his interest and enthusiasm meant he became a key part of the island’s team. And he’s not just wearing his glasses round his neck for the photo. He’s got a massive collection, and he wears them to be fashionable, or rather, to be ahead of fashion and create trends.
Her fabulous smile shows courage and tenacity. She doesn’t let anything get in her way. Marga’s brimful of energy. If you think a photo can’t possibly convey how dynamic she is, visit animajobs.com and try to convince us. She plays the main part in our Spanish language video. At that time she was head of entertainment at the Hotel IFA Interclub and she’s shown us what the job of tourist entertainer is about like no one else has.
Salvo’s almost literally a chameleon. Not only does he learn and adapt very quickly, he also loves to dress up and surprise us at carnival. It’s no accident that he’s wearing a Darth Vader Tshirt in the photo. Heroes like Batman and anti-heroes such as Darth Vader – though there are no other anti-heroes like Darth Vader! – are his favourite fancy dress characters.
An eternal Peter Pan, she knows how to keep faith in her projects, but it’s a while since she stepped out of the story and she knows that for them to succeed, she needs to work hard. She’s goodness and happiness personified. She’s conquered us, her colleagues, with her great big smile and the same happens with all the guests who visit the hotel: above all, the littlest ones.
She’s our Dancing Queen. Hailing from Galicia, Iria has gone from shining on hotel stages as an entertainer to surprising us with her abilities as a coordinator. She made sure that she learned to dance through entertainment and we tell her that she continues to teach us by example how to be better organised; and to continue working to do our best in everything we do.
Kitti has chosen to pose with a jigsaw puzzle that’s a map of the world, which unites her two favourite hobbies in one sole object. She has enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles since she was seven years old; she finds them very relaxing. She enjoys the feeling of finding the piece that fits. But don’t let this fool you – Kitti is an intrepid lady who loves travelling, discovering new cultures and learning about them. It was this interest that attracted her to an Acttiv casting in her native Hungary.
Yara spreads charm and friendliness wherever she goes. She’s won everyone’s hearts not just thanks to her talent as an entertainer and coordinator but for doing it all with a beguiling, magnetic smile. This native of Tenerife has been captivated by ducks since she was a child; she doesn’t really know why she’s always found them so fascinating but that’s why she’s brought her very biggest one for the photo. With Yara, who came to entertainment quite by chance, our Tenerife team will surpass itself every day.
This girl from Chile who loves Tenerife is so proud of her baby that she was determined he’d appear in the photo with her. Kevin isn’t even a year old and has no idea of the fabulous surprises his mama has in store for him. Angy adores children and making their dreams come true. That’s why, for some years now, she’s been delighted to help organise the Cabalgata de Reyes de Los Cristianos – the Parade of the Three Kings, which takes place in Tenerife on the national Kings’ day holiday on the 6th of January.
