We have an exciting opportunity for an Operations Manager to join the team at Wembley Premier Inn.
This 154 bedroom property runs at 85% occupancy throughout the year, and has a strong 65% Sleeper breakfast ratio.
The ideal candidate will have run a similar size property and have prior management experience of in excess of 20 team members.
The housekeeping team in this site are newly formed having moved away from external contractors, and therefore the team needs nurturing and guiding to ensure we continue to deliver great standards.
This is a great challenge for someone who is looking to broaden their management experience!
Our Operations Managers lead the way in making our guests feel brilliant through a great night's sleep. In return for overseeing every aspect of our guests' brilliant experience, they enjoy all the support they need to gain new skills and realise their potential as part of a passionate, purposeful team. The rewards and benefits are pretty good too.
You'll lead a motivated, multi-skilled team in being the best they can be. From recruitment to welcoming them on board, supporting their training and encouraging their development, you'll empower your team to build success and share ideas. With industry experience, you'll know the marketplace and use this knowledge to guide business development and performance – we're relying on you to be a hands on role model for the brand.
Along with broad industry experience that includes working on reception, in the kitchen and housekeeping, you'll know all about financial and revenue management, as well as health and safety compliance. You'll also bring strong commercial insight and quickly get up to speed with our brand values and standards. Most importantly, you're an accomplished people manager who champions individuals and teamwork, understands the importance of communications and can motivate all to embrace change. An inspirational team leader, you'll lead by example, not just driving your team but motivating them to achieve more – even when under pressure.
