Operations Manager – Bradford

Full Time

Be part of building something very special!

Cedar Court Hotel Bradford, trust me, it’s not just any hotel… it’s all things to all people and an amazing hotel footprint and product. We’ve splashed a whopping £500k on redesigning and repositioning the ground floor operation of the hotel and we are now searching for an Operations Manager to help form this hotel from an idea to reality… is it you?

We need an individual who understands the intricacies of hotel operations and has that distinct flair, leadership and presence. Imagine being the person who doesn’t just meet standards but sets them, ensuring our guests are treated to unparalleled service. If you’re the kind of leader who thrives in a dynamic environment and has that innate sense of quality, we should definitely connect. Whether you’re all about traditional operations or you’ve got a serious appetite for F&B or a room bias, we’re eager to meet the best of the best. This isn’t just a job; it’s a chance to be part of the crème de la crème of independent hotel groups – where connection and creativity reign supreme.

So, what’s in store? You’ll command the helm for daily operations, team up with the Hotel Manager when challenges pop up, immerse yourself in delivering top-notch food & drink experiences, guide our guest host team with unmatched leadership, and collaborate with our Learning and Development Leader. And let’s not forget – ensuring our hotel isn’t just a stay but an unforgettable experience. Working with a Cedar Court Senior team that have a proud history of developing people supporting growth within individuals and promoting from within.

Got credentials? We’re looking for someone with at least 2 years under their belt, leading a team in a bustling hotel or similar setting. And why join us? At Cedar Court Hotels, it’s more than just clocking in. When was the last time you can honestly say that you worked for a company whose core values include the word fun, growth and connection, and here is the bit that other don’t talk about:

  • £35,000 per annum salary
  • A fantastic place to work!

  • Learning and Development opportunities, helping you to become the best you can be
  • Automatic enrolment into a workplace pension scheme
  • 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
  • Trip Advisor recognition and cash reward
  • Random Acts of Kindness for our colleagues
  • Holiday Hero Scheme – could you be jetting off somewhere courtesy of your colleagues?
