Highlands End Holiday Park is a 5 star Best of British Park just a 500 metre walk from the beach. It enjoys gorgeous panoramic clifftop views of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. Open all year but the busiest time for experience is March – November. Tourism students and graduates are offered the chance to volunteer in 10 different areas of the park to give them a broad experience of all aspects of a holiday park and the Tourism Industry. The roles are mainly customer facing and would suit someone planning to work in the tourism / Hospitality industry who needs to build their CV and experience. As this is a greater depth role, we require the volunteer to be available at least 16 hours a week.
