More than 30 new staff have been taken on by Clacton Pier in time for the Easter holidays and summer season.

Both full and part-time jobs have been filled as rides operators, in the arcade, retail outlets and in Discovery Bay soft play area.

The new employees took part in an induction and will receive training prior to this weekend’s bank holiday.

More are needed now, and for the for the summer, and the pier will have over 200 staff on the books for the main season.

Operations Manager Ewelina Majewska said she is delighted with the new recruits.

“They are all keen and ready to get to work at Easter when we expect plenty of footfall over the weekend and entire school holiday,” she added.

“For many it will be their first taste of employment but those who stay with us will have the chance to move up within the structure. We are always keen to promote home grown talent where we can.

“There are people working with us now – such as myself – who have moved up through the ranks to managerial positions.”

All vacancies are on the pier’s website, and anyone interested should send their CV to careers@clactonpier.co.uk

The attraction’s Easter Eggstravaganza gets underway on Friday (March 29) and runs through until April 14.

Rides will be operating, weather dependent, throughout that period; there is an egg trail with a prize for those who complete it and each day the first person to discover the golden egg will win an annual rides pass worth £49.99.

It will also be the first chance to meet the pier’s new giant Easter Bunny daily in Discovery Bay, included in the admission price.

A free fireworks display will go off on Sunday March 31 at about 9pm and there will be live music in the Boardwalk at the weekends.
