There will be the opportunity to try some cooking with the Butlin’s chefs, have a go at mocktail making with the bars team and even enter a bed-making competition. There will also be demonstrations of other skills such as beauty therapy and CPR.

It is also a great opportunity to see inside the resort, with all the activities and interviews taking place inside the iconic Skyline Pavilion.

“Many people think that Butlin’s only offers seasonal work, but the resort is operational 52 weeks a year and we offer a wide range of skilled work across areas such as accommodation, catering, bars and leisure,” said Sally Dowling, Recruitment Manager at Butlin’s Skegness.

“The Recruitment Open Day offers people a chance to see what sort of roles we have, meet our team and even have a try at some of the skills, all in a relaxed atmosphere. If they find roles they are interested in, they will be able to apply and be interviewed on the same day. We also offer live-in accommodation with some of our roles for people relocating to the area.”
