We’re so delighted to welcome Madeleine and Ryan, BHP’s new Assistant Managers. They come here with enthusiasm, plenty of new ideas and a love for life. These traits will shine through and we feel our guests will notice that as soon as they arrive. We asked them about the start of their journey…
- How did you know you wanted to manage a holiday park?
Ryan – I have grown up in this industry and I loved my childhood. Being a parent now myself, I can’t imagine a better life for my family.
Madeleine – I agree, I haven’t been brought up in the industry. However, I come from a big family and my fondest memories are camping and spending that time with love ones. As far as work goes, I love customer service so to be able to combine these two loves and be a part of our guest’s holidays and memories is great.
- What was your first impression of the Park?
M – oh my goodness!!! Byron Holiday Park offers so many things – from the playground to the beach. It’s fantastic! And the chickens, we love the chickens!
R – The size, it’s huge! I didn’t realise it was so close to the beach! The whole location is great and so close to everything.
- What do you think the most rewarding part of your job will be?
R – I think it comes down to the guests! We love the guests and being able to help them create a holiday experience they won’t forget.
M – Work/lift balance too. Having our 7 year old daughter be a part of it all, she takes after her parents…little social butterfly,
- What do you think will be most challenging? Working together?
M – I think we’ve always been a good team, with very different methods but the same goals and motivation so no not really working together.
R – I think we will have to get back to you on that!
- What is your vision for Byron Holiday Park? What would you love to see happen at the Park?
M – I would love for the guest to experience the community family feel we hope to achieve.
R – Just for the guest to be happy and to create precious memories for their families at our Park.
- What do you think makes Byron Bay so popular?
R – The food, the beaches, the waves. They are some of the best in the world!
M – it is a place that has so much warmth, there are people from every walk of life and every decade as far as style goes.
- What makes Byron Holiday Park so special?
R – Apart from the location and its natural surroundings, I would say the feel between the staff and the guests.
M – I really think that every person who works here is a naturally themselves. This creates a greatatmosphere. I also think that the Park, being family owned, gives it a real organic feel.
- Maddie, you worked in a camping store before, what item do you think is a must have when camping?
M – oh I am a happy little camper if I have my family, but I also love my cobb camp oven so much that I use it even when I am not camping.
- What are you most looking forward to while working and living in Byron?
R – Everything Byron has to offer. The culture, great beaches, great restaurants and the surrounding hinterland.
M – I think the lifestyle – from the markets to the beach and just adventuring.
