Disneyland Paris searching for thousands of new recruits ahead of new season


Disneyland Paris has launched a recruitment campaign to find 3,000 new employees.

Interviews will take place in Italy, Spain and England, with new employees signing contracts in February and being employed for a year.

The campaign will target, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, England, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland and France.

Candidates must be over 18 and have a "good knowledge of French and English". They have the option of staying on the park’s onsite residences.

Last year, 400 workers on closed-end work contacts became permanent employees.

Jean-Noël Thiollier, director of employment and remuneration at Disneyland Paris, said: "Few other employers can offer such a varied career path in such a unique and dynamic environment.

"Disneyland Paris is a diverse company with more than 14,000 professionals from nearly 100 different nationalities working in a single site.  In 2010 we recruited over 2,500 employees in the sectors of hospitality, sales and catering, and in support divisions including marketing, legal, communications and human resources.

"The UK is our second largest market and therefore recruiting in the UK is an important part of any campaign we do."

Earlier this week, a choreographer from Jersey was selected to compose the routines for the Dance World Cup 2011, which is being held at the park in the summer.
