The supervisor will earn between £20,092 and £23,080, and conversational Welsh is required, although support to reach this level can be provided.

Pembrey councillor Hugh Shepardson said the restaurant was doing really well before the more recent coronavirus restrictions came into force in Wales.
“It’s a magnificent attraction for the park,” he said.
