Holiday company Haven has announced 5,000 job opportunities across its parks - with 139 available in Dorset - as it prepares to open for 2021.

Roles will be available on both full and part-time contracts and cover a range of functions such as leisure, catering, cleaning and security.

Haven's parks locally include Rockley Park in Poole, Weymouth Bay, Seaview and Littlesea in Weymouth.

Under the roadmap out of lockdown, holiday parks can open with 'self-contained accommodation' from April 12 at the earliest.

Haven's Julie Scoltock said: “We’re so excited to be able to re-open our holiday parks in April and are looking for a wealth of talent to join the team ahead of what’s undoubtedly going to be a very busy season.

“Haven is a key employer throughout the UK and we’re extremely proud to be able to offer jobs to thousands of people up and down the country during what’s been a particularly difficult time for job seekers."

She added: “This year is set to be a really big year for UK holidays with thousands of holidaymakers looking to escape to the great British coast for a well-deserved break."
