House Keeping Supervisor
Working in housekeeping is no easy task and so it follows then that managing our housekeeping team is even less of a mean feet. We need someone who will take responsibility for the presentation, health and hygiene standards of our two ski lodges all winter long and ultimately be accountable for the quality of the guest experience that we deliver each night. This will involve making sure that every guest room is cleaned quickly, efficiently and to a high enough standard to keep our ski mums happy, whilst also making sure that the cleaning of all public areas is up to scratch, keeping track of all ordering and supplies, all maintenance requests and requirements, all lost property to be returned and never ending tons of laundry. You will need to be able to delegate effectively but also work as part of the team, liaising with reception staff to ensure that all guest needs are met. If you’re up to the challenge and think you have what it takes to deliver a first rate “snow experience” to our guests whilst still finding time (and energy) to get out and enjoy the slopes yourself, then you could be just the housekeeping supervisor that we’re looking for.
