Aimee, General Manager at Twitchen House
I’ve worked for Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks for 8 years and am currently General Manager at Twitchen House. My job there means that I’m in charge of the whole Park so I make sure that everything is running nice and smoothly for holiday guests. I’ve been General Manager for the past 4 years, but before that I worked up through the ranks as lifeguard then Assistant General Manager at Golden Coast. I then took a break to try something else but really missed the holiday park lifestyle so when this job became available I went for it!
When I left school I joined the Royal Navy and got to see the world, but I’m a North Devon girl through and through so really wanted to move home. The most rewarding part of my job is creating amazing memories for all those families who come on holiday to our Park. Being part of the design and construction before being handed over a brand new entertainment complex at Twitchen House is my personal highlight without a doubt. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do yet the sense of achievement after a brilliant season seeing all our guests love their holiday and our team really enjoying their new working environment was a real sense of achievement.
Lauren, Assistant General Manager at Woolacombe Bay
I have worked for Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks for 13 years and I am an Assistant Manager for one of the 4 Holiday Parks. My job is to ensure the smooth and efficient management of the Park, providing the best possible facilities and customer service at all times.
Growing up in Woolacombe I have always been interested in the tourism industry and when I was 13 I wanted to start work for the company as I loved what they do, creating exciting holidays. I started on the kids bar and over the years I have worked in many departments, including the main bar, restaurant, housekeeping and Reception. Every year has been different and I have enjoyed learning different aspects of the company, which has enabled me to learn so many new skills and further my career. I have worked my way up and I have been an Assistant Manager for the past 3 years.
I enjoy doing my job as it gives me plenty of fulfilment, with every day being a different day and I am thankful to be given the opportunities I have and to work with an excellent team. I feel lucky to work in such a beautiful environment with the fantastic views of the area. Its gives me great satisfaction to see our guests having a great experience and enjoying their holiday, and over the years seeing the vast improvements being made to our fleet and facilities. To anyone thinking of joining our team, with determination and drive you can achieve anything you desire.

You are always pushed to be the best you can be and showcase your own personal talents as well as getting the opportunity to work with a strong talented team. Another part of the Job that I enjoy is being able to meet new people and face new challenges every day.
