EMPLOYER Bourne Leisure Limited
JOB SUMMARY Our Butlin’s resorts are currently recruiting Kickstart Butlin’s Team Members for a fixed term placement as part of the Governments ‘Kickstart’ Scheme which is eligible to all 16 to 24-year olds.
No two days are likely to be the same if you’re a Kickstart Butlins Team Member and on this placement you’ll have the opportunity to learn not just one new job but 2 or maybe even 3!
We’ll train you to become a Waiter/Waitress in one of our restaurants and bars, a Cleaner for our guest accommodation or venues across resort and/or assisting in Retail or Leisure too.
If this is something that interests you here is what we’re looking for -
We’re looking for candidates that are confident to talk to and assist our guests. All of these roles will be required to interact with our guests but in particular the Waiter/Waitress and Funfair Assistant roles will require someone who can comfortably start a conversation, maintain eye contact and talk to the guests as they queue up for a ride, or are seated at their table or require serving in one of our restaurants
You’ll need to be able to demonstrate that you have a ‘can do’ attitude. In all these areas it’s likely to be busy and even sometimes demanding. Having a team of people who are willing to learn, work hard, get stuck in and roll up their sleeves will ensure that together we get the job done and our guests are satisfied
We’re also looking for someone who has great attention to detail. Our guests deserve their rooms to be clean and fault free every time and we know that this can only be successfully achieved if our team members know how to clean and will also look out for anything else that needs that extra bit of TLC And, on our funfair the attention to detail is all about the health and safety of our guests. Our team members need to be constantly observing the rides and the guests to ensure they are safely onboard and ready to have fun
We think our restaurants, guest accommodation and our traditional funfair at Butlin’s is something special and we know our guests love to keep returning to them as part of their holiday experience so the cherry on the top for the successful candidate is for them to be fun, keen to join in and work as part of a team, and is interested in ensuring our guests have a great time, every time
