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.
