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.

The Operations Manager role is a stand-alone position but it can also be an excellent route to becoming a General Manager within Beyond Escapes as we develop the brand to five sites in the near future.

- Follow and adhere to all Company, Health and Safety policies and procedures that are relevant to your department and role
- Manage security across the location
- Be the number two on site liaising with all department heads on a daily basis and take full control in the absence of the General Manager
- Any other duties as required as a member of the management team

Your Job Specific Tasks

- Ensure the team are trained in, aware of and follow all service standards at all times relevant to your departmental operations
- Carry out inductions for all new departmental managers and maintenance team members to ensure they are aware of processes and procedures in place at Beyond Escapes

- Ensure all Food safety and hygiene processes are in place and being adhered to within the restaurant and bar areas, conduct regular audits and feedback any improvements required
- Find new and innovative ways to identify guest needs including resort services and facilities
- Encourage and motivate team members to meet and exceed guest satisfaction, revenue, costs and other relevant targets
- Work with other managers to ensure their teams are working to achieve their targets
- Lead the team with pride and enthusiasm, encouraging them to live our values and find ways to delight all guests and provide a memorable experience
- Attend regular managers meetings providing the team with up to date information on site performance now and in the future
- Cultivate and develop a positive can-do atmosphere between all departments so that everyone is in tune with the component parts that make up the guest journey
- First responder to callouts on a shift rotation basis
