West Belfast adventure park hires 20 summer staff

The Colin Glen outdoor activity centre has hired 20 more staff for the summer season

WITH Covid restrictions easing from this week for outdoor sports training, Colin Glen Trust has created 20 part-time outdoor activity instructor roles at its forest adventure park in west Belfast.

The park has recently undergone a £5 million investment project which includes the construction of Ireland’s first alpine coaster and Ireland’s longest zipline.

The world-class attractions are set to open to the public this summer and are part of Colin Glen’s wider redevelopment plans to create a new global tourism hub in Belfast.

Chief executive Colin O’Neill said: “We’ve always been committed to creating local jobs and training opportunities, and we’re pleased to be in a position to hire more staff as we look forward to the reopening of our local tourism economy.

“This summer will see lots of families planning staycation getaways, and with increased staff and great new attractions, we’re hugely excited to safely welcome everyone back to Colin Glen.”

He added: “We look forward to welcoming our new staff on-site and having the facilities open again soon, and if all goes well, we hope to conduct a further recruitment drive over the summer.”
