Lightwater Valley recruitment processes.

Extracts from this document...


2D) Lightwater Valley recruitment processes Advert Firstly the personnel staff at Lightwater Valley would look at the vacancies available and find what staff they need and where in the park. They would put an advertisement in the local press, explaining the job and it's role and also the salary. Sometimes they would put the advert on their web site or in local schools and colleges. Interest People, who may be interested in the vacancy, will telephone the personnel department at Lightwater Valley, who will then arrange for an application form to be sent out to the applicant. Once the application has been filled in and returned to personnel, they in turn will send out a brief letter or possibly make a telephone call, to arrange an interview time and date.

I also said I was a student willing to work weekends and that is what they mainly look for as I would be able to work the summer holidays and any other holidays, also Lightwater Valley is know for being one of the highest employers in the Ripon and Northallerton area.. Other Training Methods I think they could change their training methods as it is hard for them to train all the staff in a set amount of time with a set amount of money. They could maybe open a centre for all the theme parks to train their staff this would be good as it would save money and maybe be easier on the management due to them spending a lot of time training. They could maybe train the staff while they work, these could be affective but if the park is busy it may not work very well.
