Join the Family: Recruitment Days For Lyons Holiday Parks

Share it!

Calling all tradespeople, waitresses, lifeguards, managers, chefs and more – we’re inviting you to join the family!

Dozens of new positions in the hospitality, leisure, tourism and trading sectors have now been created by Lyons Holiday Parks, who run 13 parks across the North Wales Coast, in a bid to increase the region’s vitality.

Two recruitment days are to be held at Lyons Robin Hood on Tuesday, January 18th and Saturday, January 22nd at 12 noon, where potential employees can get the chance to ask questions about each role, gain an insight into the sector, and get a ‘taste of what it’s like to join the family.’

This recruitment reflects the family company’s aim of providing a variety of valuable employment opportunities to aspiring bar & restaurant teams, tradespeople, managers, trainee lifeguards, arcade attendants, chefs, groundsmen, and maintenance team members.

Nikki Rathie, head of operations for the Lyons Group, said: “These two taster sessions are the perfect opportunity for budding recruits to get a glimpse into what it’s like working for the largest holiday park operator in North Wales.

“All you have to do is turn up to our flagship park on either date, where a ‘speed interviewing’ style session will be held throughout the day. Multiple departments will be on-hand to share more about the roles we have available and to answer any questions. We’re all about injecting fun into the things we do, and this style is something completely different to what we’ve done before.

“We’re really excited to see the huge talent that we know lives and breathes in the North Wales area and we’re so looking forward to welcoming dozens of amazing individuals to the family.”

Lorraine Smith, HR manager, believes this open approach will incentivise those who are seeking employment to drop in and learn more about the available opportunities. Nikki emphasises that the environment will be safe for everyone, with social distancing in place, and refreshments will be available throughout the day.

She added: “This is a great opportunity for those who may have been affected by furlough or redundancy throughout the past 18 months. We are not only hiring for seasonal and part-time staff, but opportunities are available for full-time, permanent positions too. The Lyons group are all about progression and succession: meaning not only are we interested in filling roles but investing in people, their personal growth and their futures.”

Company director Joseph Lyons Mound said: “The pandemic has stopped many things, but the tourism sector in North Wales hasn’t. All you have to do is look at the fact we retained 160 permanent team members throughout the first lockdown of 2020 and took on even more team in 2021.

“Things have to keep moving, and we will always be expanding. Now there’s light at the end of the tunnel, we want to do all we can to drive tourism back into North Wales and give the local economy the boost it needs and deserves.

“We’re a family business – we want to nurture progression among all employees too. And our recruitment day is the perfect first step on the recruitment ladder. Along with our Kickstart and apprenticeship schemes, we firmly believe that this is the ideal way to celebrate the return of tourism and interest in the area.”
