Working together: Pontins staff, Jobcentre advisers and rural employability project co-ordinator

A recruitment day at Pontins Camber Sands, which gave job seekers the opportunity to complete application forms and guaranteed interviews, was held last month. Rye Partnership staff and Jobcentre Plus advisers were on hand to assist with applications and organising interviews for more than 120 people who attended to apply for a job.

Phil Martin, general manager of Pontins Camber Sands said: “We would like to thank everyone involved for their support with the recruitment day. We had a great turnout and a high calibre of applicant. This has helped us immensely in recruiting good quality, suitable local staff. We are proud to be associated with Rye Partnership, and the role they play in our staff recruitment is held in very high regard here.”

Amber Ablitt, also from Pontins, added: “Pontins has been successfully providing fun-filled family stays for over 60 years and has recently been undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment, which is on-going and now offers an additional number of chalets and facilities for our guests. From trampolining, go-karting, swimming and crazy golf to darts, snooker, pool and the skate park, we offer something new and exciting for all. We also pride ourselves on our customer service and we feel that our staff are key to our success.”

There were a host of job vacancies available, varying from restaurant and bar staff to service support officers and leisure staff.

If you missed the open day and are interested in applying please email camber.recruitment@pontins.com for more information.

The rural employability project continues to offer employers support with local recruitment and also offers work club services, and employment support at Tilling Green Community Centre. The project, funded by the Department for Work and Pensions, works in close partnership with Jobcentre Plus and other local organisations, to improve the employment prospects for local people living in the rural area.
