The drive to recruit 1,500 employees for a variety of positions at the new Center Parcs Woburn Forest village has now started. Positions which are currently available include Housekeeping Head of Department, Senior Rangers, Food and Beverage Operations Manager and Executive Sous Chef.
The £250 million village in Bedfordshire, due to open in spring 2014, is creating many job opportunities and over the next few months more than 500 housekeeper roles – the single largest part of the recruitment process - will become available.
Led by Tracey Purser, the newly appointed Woburn Forest HR Manager, the recruitment process will take place over a six month period and all positions are expected to be filled by January 2014 with a start date of spring 2014. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to assessment days which will take place near the Woburn Forest site.
Martin Dalby, Chief Executive, Center Parcs UK, said: “As the job market remains unsteady, I’m delighted that we are able to create such a large number of new jobs and offer people an exciting and rewarding career. Our employees play an important role during our guests’ short breaks with us and I’m confident that the Woburn Forest team will recruit 1,500 enthusiastic individuals who truly reflect our brand values.”
