Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Parkdean Resorts is Calling on Local Talent for Jobs in Newcastle


Mar 20, 2018

Parkdean Resorts is using English Tourism Week to call for local talent to enter the tourism industry with the announcement of 50 jobs in the North East and a further 100 nationwide.

The UK’s largest holiday park operator is enhancing its central support office in Gosforth with roles available in IT, marketing, finance, legal, procurement, contact centre, HR, entertainment, sports and leisure, as well as apprenticeships.

People looking to take the next step in their career are being recruited, with training and development opportunities available for graduates seeking their first job, to experienced professionals ready for a new challenge.

The company, which is the North East’s 13th biggest business and accredited with an Investors in People Gold Standard Award, is also filling customer-facing positions out on its parks, including general managers.

The chance to travel comes with being one of Parkdean Resorts’ people, as it operates 72 holiday parks spanning the UK, from up in Scotland to down in Cornwall with five in the North East.

There are currently 154 people in apprenticeships and the company is looking to take on 64 more across the UK, with the chance to gain on-the-job experience in customer service, retail, maintenance, business admin and holiday sales.

Completing an apprenticeship with Parkdean Resorts can see people take up a fulfilling career with the business, as can Inspiring Our Next, its graduate management programme.

Maggie Pavlou, HR Director at Parkdean Resorts said: “We are taking the opportunity in Tourism Week to showcase the fantastic careers we can offer people in the North East and beyond.

“The tourism sector has a diverse range of career opportunities whether customer-facing, or in fields such as marketing, finance and IT – and we are always looking for experienced, enthusiastic and customer-focused people to join our team.”

Parkdean Resorts was named the region’s 13th largest business in The Journal’s Top 200 list last November, and placed 36th in the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250, making it the biggest mid-market growth company in the North East for a second consecutive year.
