We have two vacancies for Welsh speaking Visitor Information Assistants available now.
Based in the Visitor Centre on Chester Street the successful candidates will support the new retail manager on a day to day basis offering a range of tourism services ranging from hospitality business support, staging events, and working with Visit Wales to promote the County as a place to visit.
Hours are 28 per week including some Saturdays.
The centre, which is now open (but planning a full reopening in November) continues to provide the most up-to-date information, maps, event news and local information leaflets. In addition to this, a new centre manager has been recruited, bringing a strong retail and local food / drink background which will be evident on a daily basis within the centre.
The centre will act as a one stop shop for both visitors and businesses within the hospitality sector to both find out information and also access business support.
These new Welsh speaking posts, will be suitable for knowledgeable, outgoing and passionate advocates for the county. Based in the vibrant new Visitor Centre on Chester Street, the roles will offer the chance to greet visitors to the city centre, support food and drink pop-up events and really champion Wrexham as a great place to visit.
Back in 2009, UNESCO awarded global World Heritage Site stats to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal, transforming the site – along with Wrexham’s tourism sector – overnight into a £100m plus economy. Fast forward a decade or so later and alongside this, the growth and investment within Wrexham’s tourism sector has been impressive culminating in the City of Culture bid for 2025 and attracting further international attention via the American takeover of Wrexham AFC.
Joe Bickerton, Destination Manager at Wrexham County Borough Council supports tourism across the County Borough and North East Wales and views the new centre as a vital component for further growing Wrexham’s tourism sector going forward. He said, “Wrexham has really been on an upward curve in terms of tourism growth for over a decade now, so the opportunity to join this team and work from the new visitor centre is a really exciting one and will offer chances to share your passion for our area and support local businesses.
“Overcoming the challenges faced back in 2020 and those of the recovery since has meant that our continued support for the tourism trade has been vital. Both this new centre and hopefully our continued support & promotion along with the events programme will further boost visitors in 2023 – plus the terrific international exposure that Wrexham is currently receiving will further benefit our community.”
