Brean holiday park creates 150 jobs as recession boosts seaside holidays

A Brean holiday park is creating 150 jobs, thanks in part to an expected upsurge in the number of holidaymakers buying low-cost British seaside holidays during the recession.

Brean's Holiday Resort Unity announced on Tuesday (February 3rd) that it is about to start recruiting for new staff for the summer season.

The new posts, which also include Brean Leisure Park, will be in catering, retail, bars, security, receptionists, lifeguards, fair ride operatives, as well as maintenance.

Park owner Richard House told "We are looking forward to the 2009 season and, despite the recession, are positive about the UK holiday market."

"With over £500,000 invested in accommodation for 2009, visitors can expect enhanced luxurious accommodation at Holiday Resort Unity."

He said the new posts will be a mixture of full time, part time and seasonal positions. The new vacancies are available online here or by calling 01278 752015. A recruitment day is also to be held on Sunday 22nd March.

During the peak of the summer season, the park employs over 250 people and accommodates up to 5,000 people holidaying in the UK.

The news came on the same day that Pontins announced plans for a major refurbishment of its Brean holiday park.
