Resort Manager

Job Details

Outstanding luxury properties, five star service and all the support you need to manage and develop your team. A resort management role very different from the rest.

As our Resort Manager you will lead our resort team on a daily basis, ensuring that service exceeds our guests expectations. You’re adept at building strong relationships, both with your team and your guests, so you’ll be a strong communicator and a real people person.

With your previous experience as a Chalet or Resort Manager you’ll be able to spot an errant picture frame, a misaligned cushion or a poorly polished mirror at twenty metres.

Whilst being predominantly autonomous, you’ll work with one of our alpine based operations managers who will support you throughout. In addition to the normal management responsibilities, we’re also looking for someone with commercial awareness, who can become an ambassador for our company, French speaking skills should also feature in your tool-kit to help you take the next step in your hospitality career.
