Hospitality Operations Manager - Leeds Castle, Kent, UK
Leeds Castle is one of the country's leading heritage visitor attractions welcoming over half a million visitors each year. We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Operations Manager to join our Hospitality Department. We are a popular venue for clients looking for a high-end wedding experience or a five star conference, function or banquet. Over the last four years we have expanded our B&B Accommodation, Holiday Cottages and Glamping across the estate, and will introduce a further historic venue, Battel Hall, later in the year.
Our catering is contracted out, but we need to maintain a high quality experience for guests, and monitoring the catering operation will be an important part of this role.
The role is varied and challenging and to succeed, the person appointed will already operate as a deputy hotel manager or venue operations manager, with experience gained in a five star hotel or high-end Country House environment. They will need exceptional high standards of appearance and good attention to detail. They will need to have the management skills required to lead the function managers and front of house staff, getting the best out of the team. Strong communication skills are vital as there could be a number of functions running at the same time.
We are looking for someone who can see the ‘bigger picture’ developing the team for future business and oversee the continuous meticulous presentation of the Castle venues and hospitality service to ensure the very highest standard are achieved.
This is a permanent position, working flexibly 40 hours each week, although as you will already know from your own experience, supporting a successful event sometimes requires long shifts and out of hours working. The job would require weekend working to ensure the success of the department. Applications close 30 January 2018. Find out more here.
