Butlin’s owner Bourne Leisure has made it to the Sunday Times Best Big Companies to Work for 2018 list. Bourne, which also owns Haven and Warner Leisure Hotels, was ranked sixth out of 25 companies, and made the list for the 11th year running.
“Ranking sixth place makes us incredibly proud and it’s fantastic to see our culture and work ethic recognised by such a prestigious institute,” said sales and marketing manager Erman Housein.
The company, which employs 5,800 in 55 holiday parks under its three brands, was also awarded a special commendation for the learning and development opportunities offered to staff to improve their knowledge and fulfil career ambitions.
“To be honoured for our learning and development processes means we’re doing it right,” said Housein, adding: “Bourne Leisure is all about its people and we continually strive to enable our colleagues to do their very best every day.”
Bourne started with one caravan park in Kent in 1964 and is now the UK’s largest independent holiday business with revenue of almost £1bn a year.
