Jobs board launch could solve the Brexit-induced seasonal staff crisis

Holiday Staff, an online jobs board for seasonal staff and holiday job vacancies, has been launched, to help businesses recruit seasonal and temporary staff.

With Brexit imminent, there is an even greater need for companies to source UK-based seasonal staff quickly and efficiently.

Lucy Baker-Kind, from Devon, has designed an online platform, listing seasonal vacancies across the UK and Europe, through which advertisers receive applications direct from interested job seekers.

Holiday Staff is a simple, easy-to-use format, where businesses upload their own vacancy details, along with company profile and branding.

‘Seasonal work has been undertaken traditionally by migrant workers but, after Brexit, we need to be enticing the UK-based job seekers, with an eye-catching and modern website, where interaction is recommended via a blog and active social media channels,’ says Lucy.

A free advertiser’s blog post and free targeted marketing ensures the vacancies are all promoted to relevant applicants, via newsletters, social media and specific contacts. Previous clients have commented on the high calibre and qualified candidates sourced on Holiday Staff.

Any business which uses seasonal staff will find this website invaluable, from hospitality venues, theme parks and amusement attractions, to holiday resorts, events organisers, retailers and food producers.

‘We can help everyone, from a family-run coffee shop which needs a single member of staff, to a large corporation which requires a workforce of 150 to keep it running smoothly. This could be an essential tool for helping businesses to thrive and survive,’ says Lucy.

Holiday Staff does not concentrate purely on summer trade – Christmas retail staff, winter ski season hosts and even Lapland elves have all been advertised on the website!

Lucy has a family background in tourism and saw first hand how difficult it was to advertise for seasonal staff: ‘Advertising for seasonal staff has often involved postcards in windows, local print adverts, or simply word of mouth. I wanted to make the process easier for both businesses and job seekers, the majority of which are online-proficient and tech-aware, and who want instant information and quick results.’
