How a Career in Holiday Home Sales at Parkdean Resorts Can Transform Your Life.


Do you dream of a career that combines the thrill of sales with the joy of holidaying? Look no further than a career in holiday home sales in the holiday park industry! Joining Parkdean Resorts' Sales team might just be your ticket to a life-changing journey.

Take Richard Snow, Holiday Home Sales Manager at Naze Marine Holiday Park, as a fantastic example. Now in his 18th year in the sales profession, Richard has come full circle, starting out in Sales Administration before progressing onto Advisor and Manager roles across a number of our 66 parks UK wide.

We sat down for a catch up with Richard to hear more about his Parkdean Resorts journey so far…

So Richard, when did you join Parkdean and why?


I originally joined in 2005 as a salesperson. I was drawn in because they were a local reputable business to me, and what’s not fun about working on a holiday park every day?!

Walk us through your journey so far, what role did you join us in and where are you now?


I originally joined in 2005 and worked as a salesperson at Naze Marine before changing roles to a Sales Administrator. I then stepped away from the business for a few years before returning in 2012. Since then, I’ve worked at Naze Marine, Camber Sands in Essex, and Valley Farm as a Sales Administrator over the course of 9 years, before being offered my first Sales Manager role at Weeley Bridge in 2021. 

After 6 months at Weeley Bridge Holiday Park, I was offered the opportunity to return to Naze Marine as their Sales Manager which was another step up for me due to the sheer size of Naze Marine. I’ve been here for coming up to 2 years now, so I’ve gone full circle at Naze Marine from salesperson, to administrator, to manager! 

Since joining, what has been your proudest moment to date?

My proudest moment was probably being recognised and offered the Sales Manager role – it was a big day for me.

What do you enjoy most about your role as Sales Manager in the holiday home industry?

I enjoy the pace, I enjoy that every day is different, and that we help families enjoy quality time together in an amazing location.
