Steve Richards, CEO of Parkdean Resorts, said: “We’re always looking to invest in the guest experience at our parks. 59 per cent of our customers rebook with us, and continuing to enhance our parks will help bring people back to Yorkshire year after year.

"We create rewarding jobs in the community which can turn into life-long careers in hospitality, and our staff engagement score of 83 per cent, which is well above the sector average, shows our teams are happy.

"2024 promises to be another busy year, so there’s no better time to join our brilliant team who do so much to help our guests make lasting memories with their families.”

A spokesperson said: “Parkdean Resorts employs almost 500 people in peak season in East Riding.

“Between them, Cayton Bay near Scarborough, Barmston Beach and Skipsea Sands, near Bridlington, and Withernsea Sands, welcomed almost 140,000 holidaymakers last year, a 2 per cent increase on 2022, marking one of the busiest years on record. "

The recruitment drive comes as the company announced an investment of more than £34m in its parks for 2024, including refurbishing more than 1,500 holiday homes, adding new caravans and introducing new food and beverage units.

A spokesperson said: “100 caravans are being refurbished and seven new caravans added to parks in the county to improve accommodation options for holidaymakers.
