12 YEARS AT WHITBY AND LOVING IT! 



AT THE END OF JULY I WILL HAVE BEEN WORKING AT WHITBY HOLIDAY PARK FOR 12 YEARS, AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT I HAVE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! 

I STARTED IN JULY OF 2003 AS PART OF THE BAR STAFF IN THE FAMILY CLUBHOUSE. MY FIRST SHIFT WAS THE FIRST SATURDAY OF THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS! NEEDLESS TO SAY I WAS A BIT NERVOUS BUT EXCITED AS WELL! EVERYONE MADE ME FEEL WELCOME AND I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED MY FIRST SHIFT!
WITH EVERY SHIFT I WORKED I GOT TO KNOW A LOT OF THE OWNERS AND TOURING CUSTOMERS, AS WELL AS THOSE CUSTOMERS WHO COME BACK TO SEE US TIME AND AGAIN! 

THE SECOND SEASON I WORKED AT THE HOLIDAY PARK I AGAIN WORKED BEHIND THE BAR AND ALSO AS PART OF THE CLEANING TEAM ON A WEEKEND. WE ALL GOT ALONG WHICH MADE THE SEASON FLY BY!

AT THE END OF THE SECOND SEASON I WAS VERY LUCKY AND FORTUNATE TO BE OFFERED A FULL TIME POSITION AS PART OF THE RECEPTION TEAM IN THE OFFICE. I FOUND THIS JOB SO REWARDING AS I WAS LEARNING NEW THINGS ALL THE TIME AND I WAS ABLE TO GREET OUR CUSTOMERS AS THEY ARRIVED FOR THEIR HOLIDAYS WITH US. 

WORKING WITH THIS GREAT BUNCH OF PEOPLE REALLY HELPED ME TO GAIN SOME CONFIDENCE AND COME OUT OF MY SHELL A BIT! I ALSO GOT TO LEARN AND HONE MY KNOWLEDGE OF COMPUTERS WHICH I REALLY ENJOY.

OVER THE YEARS I HAVE HELPED OUT IN OTHER DEPARTMENTS TO GAIN KNOWLEDGE IN ALL AREAS OF HOW A HOLIDAY PARK IS RUN ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS. THE ONLY DEPARTMENT THEY HAVEN'T LET ME LOOSE ON IS THE MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT! BUT THAT'S UNDERSTANDABLE AS I WOULDN'T LET ME LOOSE WITH THE TRACTOR OR GRASS CUTTER EITHER!  

AT THE END OF LAST YEAR I WAS DELIGHTED WHEN MY MANAGER SUE PROMOTED ME TO OFFICE SUPERVISOR! THIS IS NOW A WHOLE NEW CHAPTER OF MY WORKING CAREER I AM ENTERING AND I AM LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT!

WHAT MORE CAN ANYONE ASK FOR WHEN YOU WORK IN A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION, HAVE A GREAT BOSS AND SOME GOOD FRIENDLY COLLEAGUES WHO ALL WORK AS PART OF A TEAM!
