More than 30 jobs are up for grabs at Clacton Pier as it prepares for the start of the new season in February.
Bosses at the popular attraction are looking to recruit full-time, part-time and seasonal posts.
A special event is being staged on Thursday January 24 from 12pm to 8pm in the Boardwalk Bar and Grill and anyone interested in joining the team is invited to turn up with their CV.
Ewelina Majewska, Operations Manager at the Pier, said “We are a truly a 52-week a year business with our new £4 million development of indoor attractions and have been busy throughout the winter so far,” she said.
“However, we are now looking ahead a month or so to when the rides will be re-opening and we will need to employ extra staff in a number of areas to cope with the expected increase in visitor numbers.
“It is an opportunity to join the Pier family and as we are keen to promote from within, it could be the start of a very fulfilling career with the chance to work your way up the ladder. I myself started as a rides operator and did several other jobs before landing my current managerial position.”
Among the posts to fill are a rides manager with an engineering background, electronics and mechanical engineers, general ride attendants, arcade attendants, and bowling attendants.
The Pier is also looking for an assistant manager (food and drink), chefs, a specialist pizza chef, waiters and waitresses, party hosts, and cleaners.
“We are always keen to give local people a chance of employment so please come along for a chat on January 24,” added Ewelina.
Clacton Pier employs around 200 people at the height of the summer period.
Those who cannot make it on the day but want to be considered should call 01255 421115; email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the bowling reception for an application form.
