Job description:
A Bit about us….

Beyond Escapes (BE) is a completely new luxury holiday and leisure experience brand… you probably won’t have heard of us because we yet have only just told the world we’re on our way!.

We have an ambition – a business vision – which comes from our own varied personal experiences of family breaks in the UK and abroad.

Like most families - holidays are a treasured escape from the treadmill of life.  A time to simply be with each other as a family and enjoy quality time together. To relax, recharge, to reconnect with each other (and ourselves!) as well as disconnect from the day to day.

We were finding it more and more difficult to find a place that offered a quality holiday experience for both adults and children (tiny and teenager-y), without feeling conscious of the rules and constraints of the places we stay at.

We’re determined to create the perfect escape that is accessible to everyone and caters for all.

A place where you can be the you, you love to be.

Your Role

Our Operations Manager is key to delivering operational success, ensuring our guests are provided with a consistently high-quality experience so they really enjoy their stay and want to return. In promoting a fun, safe environment, for our guests and team, whilst delivering our brand values, the Operations Manager is responsible for ensuring the operational strategy is consistently delivered to the highest standards across all areas.

- Work with other managers to ensure their teams are working to achieve their targets

- Attend regular managers meetings providing the team with up to date information on site performance now and in the future
