January and February mark the start of what would be our usual recruitment drive to increase our numbers of team members for the holiday season ahead.
The season usually starts at February half term until November but unlike other holiday parks we have certain areas that open all year such as our Brean Splash waterpark, Brean Play, and Brean Country Club so for some posts, we offer all year round employment perfect for a wide range of people for students looking for weekend holiday work. Graduates looking to start a career plus those looking for a change in role, or part-time work. Other teams that also work all year include our maintenance, accounts, and security team.
There are so many career stories and marriages to tell! and some employees with over 25 years length of service. We are the Team Brean family and love to see our team members grow in confidence and develop during their time with us.
Our family-run business has been trading for over 70 years and many family members play a key part in the day to day operation of our 200-acre Resort. We have received many awards in recent years and we continue to reinvest back into the business and our team members.
We have a permanent team of around 130 local team members during the Winter. This rises to 250 during our peak Summer period.
Finance and accounts
Maintenance including gas engineers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, and greenkeepers
Food and beverage
Housekeeping and cleaning
Leisure - pool lifeguarding and fitness

Functions, weddings, and events
It will soon be a year when he heard of the word furlough. We took advantage of the scheme to help protect as many jobs as possible and who’d a thought we would be delaying the start of our 2021 season with lockdown 3.
When we open we will need to increase our team member numbers to be able to open and welcome guests back.
This year is different. Last year we opened, recruited then closed but we had got open so it was easier to be ready. We also usually employ several Spanish students that we will miss this year due to Brexit.
In anticipation of re-opening sometime in the Spring, we have created a ‘Register your interest’ form for seasonal positions on our website where you can sign up for any position you are interested in and we will be in touch as soon as we can start recruiting. It can be accessed here https://www.breanjobs.com/join-the-team

There are also opportunities for formal training, apprenticeships, and work placements.
We will also be running a free lifeguard course which provides a Nationally recognised qualification and is a gear start to a career in leisure.
