Roles will be available across 37 of Haven’s UK holiday parks from September on both full and part-time contracts and cover a range of positions such as accommodation cleaners, coaches, support team members, cleaning operations managers and cleaning people managers.

Part of the award-winning Bourne Leisure group, Haven employs more than 10,500 team members in total and has been recognised as one of the Sunday Times Top 25 Best Big Companies to Work For, for many years.

“The roles are in addition to our existing accommodation teams and are pertinent to our ongoing operational changes to help with increased demand and ensure guests feel safe and secure whilst on holiday with us during the pandemic.

“The safety of our guests and team is our upmost priority and in addition to providing all team members with free uniform and PPE, we have also invested in a bespoke training and wellbeing programme for all our team”.

“The roles are a great opportunity for applicants to join an award-winning UK holiday company and we look forward to welcoming our new team in September.”

Successful applicants will receive a comprehensive eight-week training programme and a tailored induction around the company’s new Covid-19 procedures.
