Senior General Assistant (Newly added 10/07/2021)

This is a front of house position that ideally requires someone with previous hotel/restaurant experience. Would possibly suit a person currently in a Hotel GA role who is ready and keen to progress up a level or someone returning to the industry after a break.

This is a ‘hands on’ position covering all hotel departments. The role is diverse and as well as the 'hands on side' in bar and restaurant you will be expected to cover reception, providing an efficient and friendly check in. You will become familiar with the hotel booking system and will deal with telephone calls and emails to ensure all are responded to promptly, a good level of verbal and written English is therefore essential.

Once in position, we would anticipate that you would rapidly progress to a level where you would be able to undertake a duty management role on some shifts, taking responsibility for the smooth running of that shift. Full training and support will be given with this.

We require an individual who is flexible and reliable, has a positive enthusiastic attitude, works well in a team and is happy to go the extra mile to ensure an exceptional guest experience.

This is a full time permanent position, less hours would be considered for the right candidate. Rotas are set in advance and will include early and late shifts, weekend work will generally be on an alternate weekend basis subject to demands of the business.

Accommodation for this position may be available if required.  We anticipate strong competition for this role and you should therefore provide as much information as possible in your application.  Please apply using the form to the left.
