How to make summer pay with a working holiday

IT’S not just the weather that’s getting warmer – the summer jobs market is hotting up too.

There are currently more than 50,000 vacancies in industries as diverse as hospitality, education, sports and administration.

Taking a summer role can be a stop-gap between studies, a way to earn extra cash in the cost-of-living crisis, a boost for your CV or even a path to switching careers.

Kate Shoesmith, deputy chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, says: “Summer jobs are a way to work in an industry you like, when you like, and take advantage of higher pay rates and opportunities to train.

“As well as making money, a summer job enables you to try something new without a long-term commitment.

“Demand for temporary work is high, which means you can work and hit the beach this summer.

“And because there is a shortage of people to do the jobs available, pay is going up.

“This should make the summer of 2023 a golden one for jobseekers.”

One of the UK’s top summer job employers is Parkdean Resorts.

The holiday firm has 500 vacancies but will be recruit­ing 6,000 people in June and July ahead of the peak season

It offers 250 different careers, including catering, lifeguard work, marketing, maintenance, holiday home sales, security, finance and front-of-house, based at 66 holiday parks across the UK.

Linda Gibbs, 67, loves working at Parkdean so much she returned five months after retiring.

She has been at the firm for nine years, having previously worked as a holiday rep and resort manager for Tui.

She is in holiday home sales at Church Point park in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, North­umber­land.

Linda says: “What we do is amazing, bringing families and friends together to have fun and make memories.

“I would recommend working here to anyone, regardless of age, and our career progression opportunities here are fantastic.”

Lisa Charles-Jones, HR director for the holiday firm, says: “If you are enthusiastic, a team player and passionate about fun, happiness and holidays, you will thrive in a role with Parkdean Resorts.”

Tips on finding seasonal work

USE A RECRUITER: and are two of the UK’s top specialists for summer vacanies.

ASK LOCALLY: Pubs, restaurants, hotels, summer camps and attractions will all need extra staff.

TARGET FIRMS LIKELY TO BE HIRING: Hospitality, outdoor activities, airlines and holiday firms are among the biggest seasonal employers.


Build on life skills

A SUMMER job can kick-start your career.

“It gave me some really valuable life skills that continue to stand me in good stead.”

Here are his top tips to landing seasonal work to help build your skills.

  1. Tap into your local Jobcentre: Employer and partnership managers work with coaches to help job-seekers find suitable roles. This includes help with job applications alongside practical interview advice.
  2. Refresh your CV: Once you’ve found a summer job that’s right for you, tailor your CV to the vacancy. It’s important to highlight your relevant experience.
  3. Consider a job that allows you to learn new skills: Why not try something new and build skills in customer service, communication and teamwork? Jobs such as summer porter, activity leader or even a housekeeper could help broaden your skill set.
  4. Be flexible: Don’t disregard a role that has different shift patterns. Perhaps a position you have your eye on is being advertised part-time, as a job share or even compressed work weeks. We’re often encouraging employers to offer flexible roles and jobseekers to be open-minded.
