With all our eight years of experience as full time managers working four motels and motor lodges, we are now offering ourselves as relief managers/minders.

With our eight years of full-time experience behind us, we now want to see a good part of our lovely country we live in and yet still work in the wonderful hospitality service industry.
Our years of experience has given us a great insight into the industry allowing over time to cultivate a professional work ethic bringing with us a good business and public relations disposition.

We have owned and operated a 14 unit Motel. Together we were fully hands-on and involved in all aspects of the Motel operation from guest services, reservations, payments, etc. to property management: from cleaning and servicing units to laundry, gardening, lawn mowing and pool & spa maintenance. Working closely with the housekeeping staff we ensured that presentation for guests was kept at the highest quality.

Since late 2018 we have undertaken various Motel minding/temporary management contracts completing all tasks of running the business. Our recent assignments have included an 23 unit Motel in Auckland and a 14 unit Motel in the Waikato and 18 unit Motel in New Plymouth.

We are active, computer literate and quick to learn: willing to take on any work required and pride ourselves on a high standard of guest service and Unit cleanliness.

Available for additional opportunities and challenges to assist you where possible.

Our names are Shelagh and Ross Laird, we are based in the Central North Island. We have had over 12 years working in the Holiday Park and Tourism industry between us. It is a lifestyle and a job that we enjoy very much, we also enjoy travelling around New Zealand so we decided to combine the two by minding Motels and Holiday Parks while the owners go on much deserved breaks.

So far we have used Seekom, Callista, Motel Mate, Park Mate booking systems and are very familiar with the Kiwi card and Kiwi Parks but we are very able to learn any other systems.

We have our own accommodation being a bus or a caravan depending on the motel /park and location.
We can offer cleaning, maintenance, lawn mowing and many other jobs while you are away, Ross has his HT Licence and Passenger licence, he has also worked with a lot of heavy machinery. We like to get stuck in and help around the accommodation as much as possible. We normally arrive the two days before starting - first day arrive and set up, next day we go over the running of the motel/park with you, day three we are ready to work on our own. When you arrive back, we carry out hand over and discuss anything with you that we need to.

We have just set up a facebook page Rollin Holiday Park Minders NZ. We are both computer literate and we learn systems very quickly. We pride ourselves with good customer relations and we also take great pride in the work we do.

If you would like to discuss anything further with us you can contact us via this email or by phoning 0275581771. As references you can phone Riza De Buys at Turangi Holiday Park on 07 3868754 or Shelly and Julian at Opunake Beach Kiwi Holiday Park 06 761 7525. We will also be able to provide other references as well.

I previously managed an 18 Unit Motel. When the Motel sold 18 months ago, the new owners took it over. I have been doing relief work since then. My recent work has been varied between an 18 Unit Motel and a 24 Unit Motel in Auckland. I am a hands on person and enjoy all aspects of the job. I have used Callista, Motel Mate and Roon Soft and I am familiar with website bookings. I am prepared to travel. I would treat your business as if it were my own. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
