Building blocks for Future Employment
Staff from the Legoland Windsor Resort will be visiting Reading’s Civic Centre next Monday (20 February) morning to provide local residents details of employment opportunities at the popular Berkshire theme park.
The Council’s adult learning and employment service – New Directions - will also be at the event providing free information, advice and guidance to those looking for work. New Directions provides the Next Step face-to-face adult careers and skills advice service to fit individual needs plus facilities to help people look for work.
The Legoland Windsor Resort is currently recruiting employees to join the park’s team for the 2012 season which begins in March. As part of the big recruitment drive, the Resort intends to fill 1,000 employment opportunities across the Admissions, Rides & Attractions, Guest Services, Toilet and Grounds Cleaning, Security, Retail and Food & Beverage departments. The new employees will be a part of the seasonal workforce who work from March to November.
As an equal opportunities employer, the Legoland Windsor Resort already has a diverse workforce and aims to offer flexible shift options to those who need them.
Martin Green, Resort HR Manager said: “We understand the importance of flexible working. So whether you’re a parent looking to work for a set number of hours or days each week, a student looking to fit work around study time or have recently retired and enjoy the social interaction of the workplace, then we have lots of opportunities on offer.”
John Ennis, Reading’s Lead Councillor for Education and Children’s Services, said: “It is great that Legoland staff have made the effort to come to Reading to give local residents to the opportunity to seek new employment. This open day will provide hope and inspiration to many residents and a chance to take advantage of free careers and skills advice service from New Directions”.
