WEE COUNTY residents can jump into a new job in 2018 as trampoline park is recruiting staff in Tullibody.

Jump-n-Joy is getting ready to open early next year and the venture is looking to hire around 20 people to work at its Dumyat Business Park venue.

Owners are looking for a manager with experience in the leisure sector.

Also needed are court marshals to supervise the trampolinists; and receptionists to welcome guests on arrival.

The venue will come complete with a café which will require staff too.

Training will be provided for those who require it.

Hasan Ertekin, one of the brains behind the operation, spoke to the Advertiser this week as deliveries kept flowing in with construction material.

The indoor trampoline park is starting to take shape and he hopes it will provide something to do for youngsters and adults alike.

Jump-n-Joy will also be providing a party room for birthdays and the venue can be hired out for corporate events as well.

There will be more than 30 trampolines and the venue should be able to accommodate around 60 people an hour at maximum capacity.

Hasan is also planning to provide an “assisted hour” or two per week - specifically for people with disabilities and learning difficulties.

He reckons there will be demand for it with organisations like Scottish Autism and Play Alloa based nearby.

And there is also the potential for a toddler's hour as well.

Once complete, the venue will have 40 parking spaces attached to it to comply with planning requirements.

Speaking to the Advertiser, Hasan mused: “It's coming together now, if you asked me that question two months ago I would have said no!”

He added: “I'm really excited about this and I hope it's going to be really good for the area as well - a lot of kids here don't have many things to do in their spare time.

“It's going to be a closed up area so if the weather doesn't permit, they can still come in here and play.”
