Duty Manager: Responsibilities

Reporting directly to Hotel Manager, your position is a key contributor to the hotels' success. Your primary focus in your role as Duty Manager, working alongside the operational managers, is to ensure the perfect execution of the hotel’s operation, ensuring we are delivering exceptional standards and a fantastic, authentic, and memorable service to every guest, in a safe and welcoming environment.

In return for your passion and commitment, we offer a great package including a share of the service charge, private medical plan, cash back health plan, discounted use of hotel facilities, enhanced workplace pension & life assurance, salary sacrifice schemes (covering mobile phones, technology and white goods amongst others), employee assistance programme, and a high street, local attraction & retail perks and discount programme. 

The ideal Duty Manager will understand what amazing hospitality looks like, have a passion for exceptional customer service, thrive in a busy environment and have a positive relentlessness to work at their best every day. As part of your role, you will be responsible for managing any emergency situations that occur during your shift, so experience in crisis management and evacuations is important.

  • a strong and charismatic people person able to communicate across at all levels
