A NORTH Wales adventure centre have created a further 30 jobs, where staff can enjoy free accommodation and surfing sessions.

Adventure Parc Snowdonia, in Dolgarrog, Conwy, have offered extra fringe benefits to staff to help their workforce combat the cost-of-living crisis.

Benefits for potential employees include free surf sessions, free accommodation at the Hilton Garden Inn and discounts of up to 80 per cent when they stay at any other Hilton hotel anywhere in the world.

The vacancies in Dolgarrog are across all areas of the business, including the adventure activities, housekeeping, restaurants and other food and beverage operations.

The centre revolutionised adventure tourism when it opened as Surf Snowdonia in 2015, creating the world’s first inland surf lagoon in the picturesque surroundings of the Conwy Valley.

A total of £25million of investment has seen the centre add a host of other high-octane activities, including paddle boarding, ziplines, climbing and indoor caving, and as a result the centre was rebranded as Adventure Parc Snowdonia.

Iwan Phillips, 29, originally from Llandrillo, worked there for a year as a lifeguard after the centre first opened seven years ago.

The talented rugby player has now returned as digital marketing manager after a spell playing the game semi-professionally in Hong Kong.

He said: “Adventure Parc Snowdonia is a really special place and I get to combine my own passion and enjoyment for the outdoors, surfing, with a career and job and working alongside globally significant brands.

“The centre has developed an offering that’s continuing to evolve and is now a flagship for adventure, leisure, outdoor pursuits that people can enjoy together.

“The setting is stunning and a complete contrast to the bustling city environment I’ve been in for five years.

“For me this is the perfect balance, combining the outdoors and building a career with a business that’s really ambitious and competing nationally and globally with a team that’s really dedicated to delivering that.

“It’s a fantastic place to work and I’d absolutely recommend it to anyone, especially with all these brilliant fringe benefits.

“Staff being able to stay for free at the hotel if needed is definitely a great perk, alongside the wider benefits we get through Hilton of being able to travel overseas with a staff rate which can be about a 70 to 80 per cent reduction on the cost which is amazing.”

Managing director Andy Ainscough is aiming to recruit locally as much as possible, and said: “We’re very aware that the cost of living crisis is making life tough for everybody, with the price of fuel and food going through the roof, so we decided to do what we can to help our staff ride out this current financial storm.

“That’s why we have come up with what is hopefully an attractive package of perks and we are conducting a salary review.

“We can also offer a great team spirit and great career prospects for people with the right attitude.”
