Holiday parks firm seeking 150 entertainers

A recruitment drive is to be launched next week for singers, dancers and presenters at holiday parks, creating 150 jobs.

Haven Holidays said today that it would be starting its biggest ever search for specialist staff for its 35 holiday parks around the UK.

The X Factor-style auditions are being held at football clubs, starting at Newcastle United's St James Park on Monday, then at Manchester United, Birmingham City, Norwich City, Reading and Bristol City.

Haven said many of the seasonal jobs lead to permanent positions, with pay rates ranging from £250 to £375 a week.

Steve Buchan, Haven's casting manager said: "We're looking for dynamic people with bright, bubbly personalities.

"You need to be a real team player to do well as everyone has to pull together to deliver our top quality entertainment package.

"It's hard work but exhilarating and great fun."
