HOLIDAY company Haven has revealed it is providing over 45 new jobs in North Wales as part of the government Kickstart Scheme.

The Kickstart Scheme provides new job placements for 16 to 24-year olds who are currently on Universal Credit and are at risk of long-term unemployment. Within Haven there are 45 new job opportunities across food and beverage, retail, activities and leisure and HR with roles available within the parks in the region.

Full training is provided so applicants need not have prior experience before applying for the roles.

Paul Flaum, chief executive of Bourne Leisure, said: "We understand how hard the pandemic has been for everyone especially those trying to get into work.

"As a result of Covid we have increased the number of roles we have available, particularly on our parks and resorts and are now looking to recruit people to a number of these roles via the Kickstart program.”

Haven has three sites in North Wales: Greenacres Holiday Park in Porthmadog; Hafan y Môr Holiday Park in Pwllheli and Presthaven Beach Resort in Prestatyn.

All roles will be for a minimum of 25 hours a week over a six-month placement period providing applicants with a chance to gain solid work training and experience and set them up for roles in the future.

In addition to the roles, Haven will be providing each new recruit with a work coach and further skills training through Lifetime Training, a nationally recognised organisation who provide a wealth of apprenticeship training and vocational courses.

The further training will help recruits with a wide range of important employment skills from teamwork and communications training to help with CV writing and support to help stay in employment.

“While Kickstart will help young people get into employment, we want to ensure they are equipped to be able to continue their work journey beyond the initial placement and we feel that providing them with additional skills training will help them to succeed,” said Mr Flaum.

"This is an exciting time to be part of the UK holiday industry but wherever their work journey takes them we believe this will provide the perfect kickstart to their future careers."

The jobs are being advertised via the DWP. Those on Universal Credit can apply within their nearest centres.
