Haven Leisure Ltd, the British holiday park operator has announced that it is creating 500 new jobs at its holiday parks across the UK from September. The new full- and part-time jobs include coaches, cleaners and support team members.  

A representative of the company said Haven was recruiting staff members to 'welcome more guests' as a growing number of British holidaymakers choose to stay in the UK, rather than travelling abroad, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Haven runs caravan, touring and camping facilities across 37 sites in the UK, mostly in coastal locations. The company is part of the Bourne Leisure Group, which employs over 10,000 staff.
