Many of those who have worked for us in the past have used their roles as a stepping stone to successful careers in the leisure, retail, food and drink and entertainment sectors.

Some have stayed with us and progressed to full-time senior roles.

As we approach the time of year when we start looking for seasonal staff to do a wide variety of jobs throughout the summer, I took a few moments to look at the feedback we had from people who worked with us last year.
