Conference Porter – 2009 to 2010
Conference & Events Supervisor – 2010 to present

“I joined Chessington World of Adventures Resort on the recommendation of friends who were already employees. They had told me it was a fun place to work and offered great career opportunities, but I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I certainly wasn’t expecting was the level of professionalism from the staff. Everyone treats each other with such respect, and everyone really cares about the role play within the company. It’s a multi-national environment too, so there’s plenty of culture and diversity. I’ve met some great people.”

Days to remember

“One of the most memorable projects I got involved in was the 2010 Employee Awards incentive scheme, which recognises people for all the hard work they put in across the business. I helped set it up, and I think I found it just as rewarding as the people who received an award!”

Looking forward

“In terms of my future with the Resort, I’m hoping to push myself further, gain more recognition and jump at any career opportunities that come my way. I’ve already had Customer Service and numerous Food & Beverage training, but at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, we’re always being encouraged to add extra skills to our resume and try new things.”
