Why Choosing a Career in Sales Has Bags of Potential

Posting date: 29/03/2023
Ambitious people that like to be rewarded for their hard work are made for a career in holiday home sales. Throw in a natural drive to succeed and pockets full of people skills and you have the perfect basis for an excellent career, filled with opportunities for progression and development. 


Why? Because great Salespeople make it their absolute priority to know people, and to know their product. A career in sales has fantastic earning potential with our commission-based salary structure, and you’ll be pleased to know you could be working on one of our stunning 66 holiday parks spread across some of the UK’s most impressive destinations. Just think beautiful British coastlines... or plush green countryside…

Buckets of experience aren’t necessary to kick off your career in sales, and here at Parkdean Resorts, we offer a full end-to-end Holiday Home Sales training academy that will show you the ropes before you set about selling your first holiday home. Our number 1 priority is giving you the skills you need to succeed with us.


Careers do not stop there. Sales Advisors with us who are looking to take the next step in their journey can do so through our very own Sales Development Programme. A 6-month programme dedicated to providing our best Advisors with the skills and abilities required to lead a team and become a Sales Manager.  


We recently celebrated the graduation of our most recent Sales Development Academy cohort, with 3 participants already being promoted into Manager roles. Let’s hear from some of our most recent graduates, who have kindly offered to tell us more about their experience on the programme.

“I joined Parkdean Resorts in October. Having never been in the industry before, I was both excited and nervous to start, however I soon realised there was no need to be as the amount of training and time that has been invested in me is phenomenal. I have learnt so much in a short amount of time. The Sales Development Programme is like nothing else I have been on before, I was supported for a total of 12 weeks, and I honestly feel so confident to be able to do my role. I do and would recommend Holiday Home Sales at Parkdean Resorts to everyone. If you’re considering a change in career don’t delay, now is the right time.”

“Having worked for Parkdean Resorts for about 4 years now, I have seen how invested they are with internal progression. It’s an industry I fell into very unawares right after university but have since had a lot of great moments. To be a part of the Sales Development Programme was fantastic and full of interactive learning sessions which have helped me in my new role as Sales Manager. The programme is also the perfect platform to meet with other great advisors and share best practices as well as interacting with wider support teams at our Central Support office in Gosforth. All in all, it was super insightful and has been invaluable for me progressing my career - 10/10 would recommend.”
