Haven to recruit more than 1,500 team members over summer

UK holiday park operator Haven is recruiting more than 1,500 new seasonal team members across 38 of its 41 holiday parks this summer.

Blackpool holiday parks including Cala Gran and Marton Mere have up to 100 jobs between them, providing a real boost to the local economy.

The holiday park operator is calling on jobseekers to apply for various positions from full to part-time roles, evening and weekend working hours and multi-functional positions across various departments.

Haven strives to be an inclusive employer, with 29% of all park team members aged 16-20 and almost one in five team members (18%) aged over 50 years, up 5% compared to June 2022. 

Head of talent acquisition Nola Ferguson said: “With the UK staycation market booming, we have over 1,500 fantastic roles available at our parks, whether candidates are seeking a terrific opportunity to grow their career in hospitality or an age-friendly employer that embraces the benefits that age-diversity brings to our family centric holiday parks.

“To ensure that new hires get the support and guidance they need, we have a comprehensive training programme in place for every role.”

All roles will be offered on a seasonal basis with a particular focus on attracting either students in current or post-education as well as individuals looking for part-time employment.
