More than 30 jobs are up for grabs at Clacton Pier as it prepares for the start of the new season in February.

Bosses are looking to recruit full-time, part-time and seasonal posts to work right across the 6.5 acre landmark attraction.

A special event is being staged on Thursday January 24 from 12pm to 8pm in the Boardwalk Bar and Grill and anyone interested in joining the team is invited to turn up with their CV.

Ewelina Majewska, Operations Manager at the Pier, said there will be a whole host of positions that need to be filled as the Pier gears up for February half term.

“We are a truly a 52-week a year business with our new £4 million development of indoor attractions and have been busy throughout the winter so far,” she said.

“However, we are now looking ahead a month or so to when the rides will be re-opening and we will need to employ extra staff in a number of areas to cope with the expected increase in visitor numbers.

“It is an opportunity to join the Pier family and as we are keen to promote from within, it could be the start of a very fulfilling career with the chance to work your way up the ladder. I myself started as a rides operator and did several other jobs before landing my current managerial position.”

Among the posts to fill are a rides manager with an engineering background, electronics and mechanical engineers, general ride attendants, arcade attendants, and bowling attendants.

The Pier is also looking for an assistant manager (food and drink), chefs, a specialist pizza chef, waiters and waitresses, party hosts, and cleaners.

“We are always keen to give local people a chance of employment so please come along for a chat on January 24,” added Ewelina.

Clacton Pier employs around 200 people at the height of the summer period.

Those who cannot make it on the day but want to be considered should call 01255 421115; email info@clactonpier.co.uk or visit the bowling reception for an application form.

Hi Lacie and Raymona, basically you need to be at least 16 for the majority of jobs but someone in the kiosk may be 15.
