Jobs boost for youth and long-term unemployed at Bounce

Date Posted:10/04/2014

Bounce Milton KeynesApplicants for the sixty jobs up for grabs at Bounce GB, the UK’s first indoor trampolining park which is set to open in Milton Keynes in May, will receive intensive training from MK College.  Working in conjunction with Job Centre Plus they have put together a two week course covering customer service, food hygiene and health & safety.  All those who successfully complete the two weeks training will be guaranteed an interview.

“From the start we have concentrated on finding local suppliers and using local companies for the fit out of the premises,” says Park Manager Graham Baker.  “We think it’s really important to be as connected as possible to the community and that means working locally wherever possible, especially when it comes to recruitment.”

Applications are being taken at Job Centre Plus and then passed to the College’s Business & Leadership Centre at Silbury Campus.  Graham says, “It’s not about what qualifications people have; what we’re looking for is personality, positive attitude and big welcoming smiles.”  Even the health & safety marshalls are expected to be of a sunny disposition.  “They will have great attention to detail and be constantly making sure nobody does anything hazardous but in an approachable and friendly way.  What we want is Mr Spock with a personality!”

Director of Business Engagement at Milton Keynes College, Jane Horridge, says, “It’s great to be able to take local people who are looking for employment and give them the skills they need to work at a place like Bounce.  It’s also very encouraging that ambitious and forward-looking companies like this are turning to us for their training and recruitment needs when they come to Milton Keynes.”
