Bradford

Wedding and Events Manager

Full Time

Cedar Court Hotels are a group of privately-owned hotels with a strong emphasis on Yorkshire values and dedication to customer service.

We are recruiting for a Wedding and Events Manager to manage and co-ordinate multicultural and traditional weddings, conferences and events across both our Bradford and Huddersfield properties.

Based at our Bradford property, and with regular travel between the two Hotels, the Wedding and Events Manager will work in close liaison with our Central Reservations Team, as well as our Regional Sales Managers across Yorkshire, being the point of contact on site to ensure that all the details for weddings, conferences and events are finalised to ensure complete guest satisfaction.

You must have previous wedding and event co-ordination experience in a similar environment with a positive “can do” attitude and a strong work ethic, as you will be working closely with all operational departments within the hotel to ensure a seamless experience for all our guests.

The main responsibilities of the position are:

  • Full event management and co-ordination, from initial contact to being present on the day to make sure events run to full guest satisfaction
  • Informing operational departments of individual event requirements and following up to ensure everything runs smoothly
  • Ensuring guests receive the right and relevant information in regards to their event
  • Managing guest show rounds
  • Meeting and greeting event guests on arrival at the hotel
  • Ensure payments are processed accurately and efficiently

The role requires a professional, outgoing and positive personality with excellent interpersonal skills, a passion for guest satisfaction and superb organisational and administrative skills.

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:

  • A fantastic place to work!
  • Strong emphasis on health and wellbeing with our fabulous Employee Assistance Programme
  • Market-leading rates of pay
  • Open and clear communication with regular staff updates
  • Your birthday off – paid!
  • 28 days holiday for full time colleagues each year as standard (pro-rata for part time/hourly colleagues) plus long service holiday benefits
  • 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?
