My time at Whitby Holiday Park
Changes:I had been working in education for 10 years and due to my life taking a very unexpected turn my mind-set changed, I decided a change in my career would be the right road to take.
My brother saw the job advertisement for a Receptionist needed at Whitby Holiday Park, he contacted me and convinced me it would be perfect for me as he said 'I am very much a people person and very helpful.'
I took the plunge and applied and I am very glad I did, I work with a fantastic group of people, they are very understanding, helpful and supportive.
Monday 16th May 2016 was my first day at Whitby Holiday Park and I remember feeling very nervous when I was driving to work as I didn't know what to expect.
I had already been fore warned that the office would be very busy as the parks season had started, and it was.
The phones were constantly ringing and my two work colleagues seemed rushed off their feet, I felt more of a hindrance than a help, but they were both very patient and every time there was a quiet spell they spent time showing me the basics, there were times during that first week where I felt out of my depth.
After my first week I was confident enough to take a telephone booking independently but I was still very nervous about checking people in.
Everybody made me feel very welcome and that eased my nerves, the customers were also very patient and understanding.
I am very settled in my new job and I am extremely thankful to Susan Robey for giving me the opportunity.

Whitby Holiday Park is a very pleasant picturesque place to work, and I am pleased I made the change.
Here in reception we get involved in the spirit of the current celebration. We dress for the occasion and decorate the office and bar accordingly, the customers enjoy and appreciate our efforts.
