Exciting and Fun
Holiday Sales Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Northumberland5 February 2018
As a whole the company are very good to work for. They strive you to deliver the best performance possible and make a large point of making each day as fun and exciting as possible whilst also maintaining the upmost professionalism. I learnt from my time at the company on how to interact and engage with many varying individuals from all around the world and became extremely skilled in being able to determine the correct way in which i could engage with varying customers of the company.

Excellent place to learn your trade
Complex Team Member (Former Employee) –  Caister-on-Sea, Norfolk29 January 2018
Bourne leisure's extensive training program for the beginning of the season is excellent and sets you up not only for the job at hand but for any you may apply for in the future as they understand the nature of the job is seasonal and people may move on after one season.

You couldn’t of asked for a better team to work with. Bourne of leisure is a brilliant company that brought me a long way from being a waitress to running the big bar on the site where I had to meet and greet guests and make sure they get 100% from my team.
Pros
20% off everything in bourne of leisure sites
Cons
Exhausting long hours 7 days a week

Service and Repairs
Repair and Maintenance Controller (Former Employee) –  Allhallows11 January 2018
Typical day would be accessing the job from the control TV located in the office, these jobs are logged either with Owners or from the main Reception. Could also be Holiday makers as well. Allocating the correct engineer to attend the job could be Maintenance, Electrician, Plumber of Gas engineer. They have to report on the fault this could be referred back to Manufacturer if still under warranty or we have to contact the Owner with a cost price for them to approve.

A lot of contact with the Owners by phone and also some face to face contact as well.

Following through on all jobs chasing Manufacturers and Suppliers for updates too.
Cons
No Job Satisfaction not busy enough for me.

Working with a holiday brand that we were proud of on both the shaven and Butlins arms of the company was incredible. You learn so much from basic social skills to select skills for your role

Electrican
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Minehead, Somerset25 October 2017
Butlins is a good place to work if you're lazy and don't wanna too further your skills. The money is terrible along with the management and organisation and the hours are very u sociable. I would avoid working for Butlins (Bourne Lesuire) if you want a steady pay check.
Pros
You get 20% off in shops on site (even though shops are 20% more expensive than anywhere off site)
Cons
Unsocialble hours, awful money, management are useless, very unsociable hours.

Incredible, Would Be Perfect If...
Entertainment Manager (Former Employee) –  Hayle, Cornwall20 October 2017
I loved working for Bourne Leisure.
The guests and the team are great.

The only problem was the pay is a bit low, and the job was only March-November so was always seeking employment for the winter months. (though we do it because we love it)

Also not being promised the same park, and having to move around nearly every season.
Pros
free washing
Cons
seasonal
