Head Housekeeper

Full Time

Full job description

We are actively recruitment for a Head Housekeeper to join our Team at our 113-bedroom hotel at Ainley Top in Huddersfield.

The Head Housekeeper is the standard bearer of the business, ensuring that our high standards of hygiene and cleanliness are experienced by all of our guests.

The Head Housekeeper will be leader of our inhouse team of room attendants and support team, and a key member of the Hotel management team.

Your duties will include:

  • Management and leadership of the Housekeeping team, including employee engagement, recruitment, training and development, and performance management
  • Leading from the front in terms of daily cleaning of the bedrooms, bathrooms and public areas of the hotel
  • Managing the housekeeping rota
  • Ensuring appropriate linen stocks, liaising with suppliers and external contacts
  • Reporting all maintenance issues in line with company policies
  • Being part of the forward-looking Hotel management team of the Hotel

The successful candidate will:

  • Lead by example, recognising when to ‘manage’ and when to ‘lead’
  • Be confident and self-motivated
  • Have a similar background in working to brand standards
  • Familiar with working in a fast-paced busy environment

What we can offer you:

We want each and every colleague to enjoy coming to work, and for Cedar Court Hotels to become one of the top hospitality employers around – so providing a friendly and supportive environment is our main priority.

You will develop personally and professionally through meeting, and working with, people from all over the world as we create memorable guest experiences together. For those keen to further their experience, you will have the opportunity to explore the business with various career options.

In addition, we can offer you (the bit we want to offer);

  • Strong emphasis on health and wellbeing with our fabulous Employee Assistance Programme which is available to every team member and provides professional mental and physical health support if you need it.
  • Market-leading rates of pay
  • Your birthday off – paid! Take time for you.
  • Learning and Development opportunities, helping you to become the best you can be.
  • Discounted hotel stays after successful completion of the probation period not only for you, but for friends and family.
  • Free meals on duty, if you worked full time this would save you over £1000 a year in lunches alone!
  • Leisure Club/Gym Membership following successful completion of probationary period.
  • Long Service benefits and recognition.
  • Trip Advisor recognition and cash reward for service recognition.
  • Death in Service Benefit after qualifying period
  • Random Acts of Kindness for our colleagues (and for you to reward others).
  • Refer a Friend scheme – recommend your friends to join our Team and receive a cash payment.
  • Company achievement awards.
  • Staff Fun Days & Employee Engagement Events.

In addition, we can offer you (the bit that everyone else calls a benefit!);

  • 28 days holiday for full time colleagues each year as standard (pro-rata for part time/hourly colleagues) plus long service holiday benefit.
  • Automatic enrolment into a workplace pension scheme.
  • Company uniform
