Why work at Darwin Escapes?

Hear straight from our wonderful employees
Vicky Bennett, Go Active Supervisor

I joined Darwin Escapes in February 2014 as a Go Active Instructor. It was the best career move I have ever made. I was sent on all the relevant training courses and helped to be the best in the field allowing me to help carve lasting memories for all our visitors. It is such a dynamic company with fresh challenges every day. The support and training has been so fantastic that I soon earned the promotion to Go Active Supervisor. If you are looking to work for a supportive company who help you to reach your goals then Darwin is the right choice.

Just a stone’s throw from the vibrant seaside community and the centre of Dyserth and Rhyl, the gated community of holiday home owners and holidaymakers is tranquil and beautiful thanks to the award winning grounds, gardens and shrubberies that are maintained by our talented grounds team. Ideal for families, you can also seek out the vibrant and energetic atmosphere at the park’s leisure complex and the all-weather multi-court during the outdoor activities that are part of our comprehensive Go Active programme.

The community of holiday home owners love staying at New Pines due to the beautiful location and the range of 5 star facilities that can be found onsite. The luxury leisure facilities include the beautiful indoor swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi - perfect for relaxing or tallying up some lengths. If fitness is a passion, then visitors and owners can take advantage of the modern air-conditioned gym during their stay as well. In the evenings the on-park complex hosts a packed programme of entertainment with local musicians and comedians putting on a show for our guests. There are also a number of pub-style-quizzes and karaoke nights too – always popular after a few beverages from the comprehensive bar!

The restaurant was fully refurbished in 2015 and features a beautiful interior full of light and energy thanks to the large bay-style windows. With a delicious lunch and evening menu on offer guests can enjoy steaks from the grill, burgers, traditional main courses and Sunday Lunches!

Why Chefs Love the 5* New Pines Holiday Home Park

Working as a chef or cook at New Pines is rewarding and enjoyable for several reasons. Not least the stunning area within which the resort is located; from the beautiful gardens, flowers and shrubberies which boast awards from Wales in Bloom and a David Bellamy Gold Award for conservation; to the stunning local area which boasts a number of nature reserves and beautiful sights. Within a short distance of the park are a number of attractions; including the Rhuddlan Local Nature Reserve, the beautiful Rhyl Botanical Gardens and local golf club. It’s a world away from the hustle, bustle and stress of city centres.

Our chefs and catering staff frequently comment on how enjoyable it is to work in a modern and well maintained restaurant, serving up a range of delightful snacks and meals for our friendly community of holiday home owners and holidaymakers. Chefs are also able to take full advantage of the leisure facilities, including the gym and swimming pool; which is a big hit with those who are keen to keep to their fitness and wellbeing schedules despite their busy lifestyles.

All our catering staff, whether it be our head chef, commis chef or waiting on staff, enjoy being a valuable part of our team. The ultimate goal of New Pines is to provide the best holiday experience possible for our customers and help them create great memories that will last a lifetime. The level of customer service and quality of food prepared for our customers is a fundamental element of this and as such all of our staff, including seasonal and part time employees are regarded as highly influential and valuable.

This is why the parent company, Darwin Escapes, continues to invest and provide career progression opportunities to all of our enthusiastic and hardworking employees. We are always pleased to hear from chefs who are looking to take their career to the next level with New Pines – whether you are a commis chef, a Chef de Partie (CDP), sous chef, head chef or just someone looking to get a foot in the door of a catering career, please feel free to contact us and upload your CV.
