Conference & Banqueting Manager - Bailbrook House Hotel, Bath

We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and charming Conference and Banqueting Manager to join our team. If turning someone’s dream event into a reality is your idea of the perfect job and you live locally to our Hotel, this is the role for you.

You are the ultimate ‘people person’, able to charm clients and wedding couples, organise suppliers, and inspire your permanent and casual team members to be their best. Whether it’s a conference, a private dining event, a wedding or a big birthday bash, you’ll take the reins and oversee the event from start to finish (including the all-important set up and clear downs), while always keeping a cool head. The ecstatic faces of our guests as they “thank you for all your help!” will be a regular highlight to your working week.

Of course, this requires a lot of skill and dedication, so you will have incredible organisational skills and attention to detail, along with stamina and the ability to remain calm under pressure. Sound like a challenge you’d like to take on? Then we’d love to hear from you.

 What’s in it for you:

  • A competitive salary & a share of service charge – 100% of which is split between the team
  • 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!
  • 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 include 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:

  • You’ll have previous experience working in a similar role
  • You will have experience of managing teams and will enjoy motivating others to be their best
  • You’ll be motivated by delivering the best events for our guests
  • You’ll have experience of working in a fast-paced, busy environment
  • You’ll be excellent at building a rapport with colleagues and guests
  • Most of all, you’ll have a professional, organised and friendly approach
