We have a host of roles available to you including:
• Catering Assistants
• Guest Services
• Retail Assistants
At Blackpool Pleasure Beach we believe your education is the most important thing so therefore we would not recruit you until you have officially left school. However, as vacancies are taken fast why not apply now and try to secure yourself a Fun role?
Schedule for Y11 school leavers
• Applications open now
• Interviews held over the Easter Holidays
• Confirmation of offers made are ongoing – you will know quickly if you are successful
• Start date – Tuesday 28th June (Your last official date of being classed as a ‘school child’ is Friday 24th June).
What is the right role for me?
We will explain the main features of each role to help you make a decision, however, the main thing we want from you is your fun enthusiastic character, we can then train you for the job.
What is it like on your first few days?
The first days are often a bit scary so we try to make your journey as smooth as possible. We will ensure you know exactly what you will be doing and when. We will make sure you know what you need to bring, how you will get to us, what you need to wear and also what to do about lunch.
Our HR Team will help you with your contract of employment, you will attend a company induction where you will learn about the park, introduce yourself to your colleagues and then teach you everything you need to know about Blackpool Pleasure Beach. The induction day is interactive so you will get lots of opportunities to ask questions and learn.
Remember we want you to be happy so we will go that extra mile to ensure you have a great experience when you join us!
What about days off, holidays, Exam results days and college taster days?
We know these things are important to you, just give us the dates of your Exam results day & College taster days and we will schedule you to be off on those days.
Under the ‘Working Times Regulations,’ we are bound by law to ensure that you have the correct breaks, have two consecutive days off, work no more than 40 hours and do not work into the evening. You will be given a rota in advance so you will know when we need you.
As we are a major tourist attraction our busiest trading periods are school holidays and weekends. We therefore generally look for our Seasonal Team to be available to work most weekends and throughout the summer. We understand that you may have a family holiday booked, we would just require confirmation of the dates with plenty of notice so we can plan for cover.
Ok, but what happens when I go back to college?
The college term start date for 2022 is Monday 5th September so we know that your availability and commitment to us will change. August bank holiday is traditionally our busiest week, so we will definitely be needing you then. Many of you would want to remain with us and pick up weekend shifts, extra shifts over the Halloween & Christmas Seasons which would be fabulous. Lots of our Team come back year after year as they progress through college then university.
Many of our seasonal team gain promotions, work in other departments and some have joined us permanently into roles such as engineering, operations, catering and retail, others have gained Apprenticeships in engineering.
