Parkdean Resorts is to invest £250,000 in Whitley Bay Holiday Park to upgrade accommodation by introducing six new caravans to replace old fleet at the popular destination.

It is part of an £80million investment in its business nationwide.

The park employs more than 80 staff in season, and is currently hiring for a number of seasonal roles across sales, food and beverage, and housekeeping.

Steve Richards, chief executive of Parkdean Resorts, said: “We’ve made great progress in the last year and our success is down to the passion of our teams in helping to deliver great holiday experiences for our customers.

“We want to build on momentum in 2020, so we’re on the lookout for vibrant people to join our teams at our parks in the North East.”

The investment in Whitley Bay Holiday Park is part of the company’s largest ever annual investment in its estate.

In total, £5.8million will be invested in 2020 in a pilot ‘parks of the future’ initiative in four locations to create state-of-the-art amenities including accommodation, park facilities and kids’ activity-based entertainment such as the Bear Grylls Survival Academy.

Parkdean is also investing more than £13million to provide free high-speed wi-fi in every caravan and lodge across all 67 of its parks across Great Britain – an industry first.
