Wyboston Lakes Resort in Bedfordshire has launched a recruitment drive to take on up to 25 new team members. As a priority, it is starting by ‘re-recruiting’, offering the opportunity to re-apply for roles within the business to former team members who were made redundant when the resort was forced to close during the pandemic.

The roles will be across all departments including the site’s four-star hotel, restaurant, bar, spa and conference and training facilities. The positions vary from food and beverage manager to event venue hosts and guest services.

The opportunities have been created following a surge in forward bookings in all areas from the hotel and restaurant to the Y Spa, and event enquiries worth almost £3m over just the last 3 weeks – the highest amount in the last 12 months. The resort’s hotel and its two conference, events and training centres are due to reopen on 17 May and the Y Spa from 20 May.

Steve Jones, Managing Director of Wyboston Lakes Resort, said: “Since the government’s roadmap announcement, we have received a huge increase in bookings and enquiries across all parts of the resort. After a challenging year, we are pleased to finally be growing our team again and hope we can re-employ and welcome back many members of the team whom we were sad to lose last year as a result of the pandemic.”
