Head Housekeeper - Crathorne Hall Hotel & Spa 

Are you an experienced Hotel Housekeeper looking for a fresh challenge or perhaps your a Housekeeping Assistant Manager/Supervisor looking for the next step in your Housekeeping Management career?

At Hand Picked Hotels being a Head Housekeeper involves a lot more than just keeping our stunning hotels and bedrooms clean and looking beautiful - although of course that is extremely important!

You will be able to motivate and inspire your team, be organised to ensure regular checks are completed and stock levels are maintained. You will also be financially aware and able to control tight budgets. Working under pressure and meeting tight deadlines will not phase you, even that daily 3pm check in!

If this sounds like a tidy opportunity for you then we would welcome you to apply.

What’s in it for you:

  • A competitive salary
  • Live in accommodation (if required) is available on site charged at £57.40 per week 
  • Delicious meals on duty provided
  • 28 days holiday rising to 33 days with service – we think it’s fair to value loyalty.
  • £30 staff stays with Hand Picked Hotels per room Bed & Breakfast PLUS discounted food, drink and spa treatments. Yes, it’s as good as it sounds!
  • A share of service charge – 100% of which is split between the team
  • Annual loyalty awards (like afternoon teas and overnight stays)
  • Working in stunning surroundings and in a property packed with character
  • Free parking on site
  • Online retail discount platform offering thousands of savings with high street retailers and restaurants as well as a health and well-being platform
  • Pension & Life Assurance Scheme
  • Training & Development to help you polish up your skills - including an annual Housekeeping leaders conference, Hand Picked People management training courses such as Behavioural Interviewing and Appraisal skills and the option to complete a Level 5 Management apprenticeship 

About you:

  • Most of all, you’ll have a professional, organised and friendly approach
  • You’ll have experience working as part of a Hotel Housekeeping team at either a supervisory or management level - knowledge of Opera is desirable but not essential
  • You’ll have extremely high standards of cleanliness and an eye for detail, noticing things others don’t
  • You will have experience of training colleagues and will enjoy motivating others to be their best
  • You’ll have experience of working in a fast-paced, busy environment
  • You’ll be excellent at building a rapport with colleagues and guests
