More than 40 new jobs have been created in Bridlington.

As work continues on the development of the new £25 million East Riding Leisure Bridlington, the project has entered a new phase with the start of advertising this week of more than 40 new jobs at the site.

These jobs are all in addition to the 34 staff who are transferring to the new site from the temporary facilities at Bridlington Sports Centre.

The new jobs cover a wide range of roles, including lifeguards; instructors for the Tone Zone; swimming teachers; climbing supervisors; catering roles; and a new assistant manager for the prestigious new site.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Being able to advertise these new roles moves us into the next phase of this exciting project to boost the local economy of Bridlington, and demonstrates that we are not far off the completion of this superb new facility, which will revolutionise health and fitness for the people of this town.

“I am confident that East Riding Leisure Bridlington will help the town to take the lead for indoor and outdoor attractions all year round and I look forward to a successful recruitment campaign to allow us to recruit the best possible team to run a flagship leisure facility to be proud of.”

In addition to these new roles, to date 76 people have either gained or sustained employment as a result of the development. Details of the vacancies can be found on the council’s website at www.recruiteastriding.co.uk.

The job adverts will be rolled out over the next four weeks.
