Hotel Manager

A fantastic opportunity for the right person

Introduction and background

Situated between England and France, Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands. An independent, English-speaking territory, it has air links to over 45 airports and is easily accessible from anywhere in Europe.

The Atlantic Hotel is a stunning, award winning 50 bedroomed hotel situated on the western side of the island.  This world class small luxury hotel is set in ten acres of grounds and enjoys dramatic views over a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty. Built in 1970, it is a family owned and run hotel.  It is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and has over the years won many awards including four Red Stars and four Rosettes from the AA and 'Independent Hotel of the Year' at The 2014 Catey Awards.

The role

The owners are looking to recruit a Hotel Manager for this prestigious property. This is a hands on, customer facing role.  The individual will be fully responsible for the day-to-day running of the hotel.  They must be a leader, an individual who can confidently direct the operation and team, and an out and out ‘people person’.  They must relish guest interaction, and be prepared to play ‘mine host’.  

The role demands that the appointee is highly efficient and organised with great attention to detail.  They must be passionate about the ‘nuts and bolts’ of running a hotel. They must be standards driven as the service given to all guests is of the highest level. Candidates will have responsibility for both Front of House and the Food and Beverage operations. 

Candidate criteria

Candidates must be confident in leading a team and in their decision-making ability.  They must show initiative and bring new ideas to the hotel, whilst at the same time recognising that the owner of the hotel will want to have an input into operational changes.

Candidates should have had experience of running a similar standard of hotel and should have a background that reflects quality.   A solid grounding in hotel operations with an understanding of both Rooms and Food & Beverage operations is essential as is the experience of operating a leisure-related business. A current Deputy Manager with a solid background in the quality resort hotel market would be considered for this position. 

The focus of the role is very much based on leadership, people management and delivery of the highest operational and service standards.

Package and benefits

This is a key role within the business and the salary will directly reflect this.

Additional benefits include:

  • The use of a 3 bedroomed flat adjacent to the hotel with stunning sea views
  • 20 days holiday plus lieu time for bank holidays
  • A share of gratuities/service charge

The tax regulations on Jersey mean there is a maximum tax rate of 22%. This is a significant tax saving in comparison to UK tax rates and has been taken into consideration when defining the salary package in its totality.
