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.

Numerous beaches are just a short drive from the resort and despite its peaceful location, it is surrounded by attractions and things to see and do. Guests and of course staff can enjoy the beautiful sights on a walk along Bude’s most popular route – the coastal & canal walk, or take a stroll around or even a swim in the mesmorisingly beautiful Bude Sea Pool. There are an array of nearby beaches to enjoy as well, including Summerleaze Beach, Widemouth Bay Beach and of course Sandymouth Beach. Guests often take advantage of the many surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing schools in the local area too! Back at the park guests can relax, sit back and enjoy the sea views, take a stroll through the beautiful gardens or make use of the extensive range of leisure facilities found on the resort. Facilities include a large indoor swimming pool, a splash zone for children and a challenging outdoor gym which features a large tyre traverse, parallel bars, ladder bars and press up beams – fantastic for getting into shape and building functional fitness!

Serving a comprehensive breakfast, lunch and evening menu the stunning Ocean Bar & Restaurant aims to provide a relaxing yet family-friendly environment for our holiday guests. Chefs and catering staff serve a number of delightful dishes including full English breakfasts, thick cut bloomer sandwiches, burgers and classic evening dishes including chicken jalfrezi and battered cod and chips.

Why Chefs Love Working at Sandymouth Resort

As well as working in one of the most scenic regions of the UK, all of our catering staff love working as part of a close-knit team who enthusiastically work towards their shared goal of providing the best possible holiday experience for our guests. They also enjoy working at a brand new resort with first class leisure facilities – which they are welcome to use for free. Just a stone’s throw from the beautiful beaches of Cornwall and surrounded by scenic walks (or bike rides), Sandymouth is wonderful place to work and feels a million miles away from the busy and stressful town and city centres full of traffic and pollution.

With a range of permanent and casual positions available, you can choose to make your employment at Sandymouth the start of a promising career or as a way to gain valuable work experience to complement any catering qualifications you may have, or may be studying towards. For permanent staff, Sandymouth Resort’s HR team offer job specific training to help employees towards qualifications including relevant food hygiene certifications, COSHH and more.

As part of the hardworking and knowledgeable kitchen team, everyone from porters, Commis Chefs, Sous Chefs to Head Chefs play key roles in the entire resort’s efforts to provide the best possible holiday experience to those seeking a special retreat or getaway in beautiful North Cornwall.

Quality customer service and enjoyable dining experiences are more crucial than ever before, as we aim to create the ultimate tranquil holiday experience and in turn add another TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence to go with the array of awards already achieved at our 19 other resorts.

As crucial members of staff, all of the catering and kitchen teams are rewarded for their hard work with great rates of pay. As the business grows all chefs, cooks & porters are encouraged & supported in their application for more senior positions either within their current teams or even in another department that could benefit from their experience and knowledge.
