What we need in a nutshell

We are looking for process driven manager to lead our busiest venue on our busiest holiday park. Someone who has successfully managed a fast paced, high volume kitchen; someone who drives a culture of exceptional standards and delivers a consistent plate, no matter how busy.

 The successful manager will be someone who understands how to drive efficiencies and proactively manages their operation through periods of change. Working with their Food and Beverage Manager and Group Executive Chef, the successful kitchen manager will also have the opportunity to shape and grow an already very well-established team, menu and overall offer.

Who are we?

Set in the heart of Lincolnshire, you can switch off in an attractive environment of luxury accommodation, beautiful facilities and friendly staff. Perfect for adults and family breaks, use the swimming pool, dine in one of our amazing restaurants or explore your surroundings outside of the park. Expect some very special accommodation that no one else offers. We’ll have spacious lodges and holiday homes with hot tubs, beautifully landscaped areas for soaking up the sun as well your own parking spaces and WIFI!

To match the stunning environment, our entertainment will be beautifully crafted and delivered by our talented team. Cosy up under the blanket and watch a film on our outdoor cinema screen, enjoy acoustic vibes over a cocktail in our bar. For the kid’s there will be PLAY activities, water-based fun, bike hire and maybe even some Segway’s!’ 

What you’ll be doing
