Holiday park operator Butlin’s recruits its first-ever family of ‘Funbassadors’ to sample facilities and report the results to patrons.
The benefit-packed role includes three all-expenses-paid holidays in its resort portfolio and a cash prize of £1,000.
New recruits will have big jobs on their to-do list, including sampling the huge Splashworld pools, commenting on funfair activities and sitting front row at some of the biggest live shows in the world. Butlin which boast top talent like Diversity, Fleur East and Stephen Mulhern.
Butlin’s identified the need for the role of Funbassadors following recent research which revealed that the average child aged 6-13 wants double the quality time with their parents.
Psychologist Emma Kenny said: “On a day-to-day basis, we quite easily slip into routines and forget to make room for that quality family time together. A break, whether midweek or on the weekend, is a great opportunity to disconnect and engage in fun activities with your kids, and Butlin’s is the ultimate destination for that.
“Results show that two-thirds of children say their parents are preoccupied with work, with 30% constantly distracted by their phones. Escape to a resort like Butlin’s is the perfect antidote to reuniting family.
