Where you'll be working

Norton Park is just 8 miles away from the historic city of Winchester and yet we are surrounded by fields and countryside, don’t let that make you believe ours is a sleepy hotel though –
far from it!

Once you make it down the winding driveway you will find a dramatic mix of old and new; a modern spacious hotel supported by the 16th century Manor House with wooden floors, grand staircase and views of the lake and a beautiful thatched barn just perfect for weddings.  We have 174 bedrooms, 16 conference rooms, 2 kitchens, 10 treatments rooms, a leisure club and pool, restaurant and large bar/lounge and it is always busy here!

Our primary business is conference and events, from small meetings to large exclusive use weddings and parties – we do it all at Norton Park!  At the weekends though things change and our leisure customers arrive, they like us to be warm, friendly and just that bit chattier, so there is plenty of opportunity to be yourself and wow our customers with your fabulous personality – we love a bit of character here and so do our customers!

Norton Park is an excellent place to either gain or grow your hospitality skills.  We are a fast-paced hotel where hard work and passion pay off, with great opportunities for development and progression in both the hotel and the wider QHotels group.  People here make friends for life and there’s plenty of socialising outside of work which just goes to make work more fun.

What you'll be doing

We’ve got leisure and spa facilities at 24 of our hotels. We’ve put our money where our promises are to develop state-of-the-art facilities from our swimming pools to our gyms and treatment rooms. These are exciting times in our Spas as we work on further expanding our spa facilities as business demand continues to grow and many of our spas now offer an exceptionally wide range of treatments and packages. 

We like to make sure that our service for hotel customers and our leisure club members is just as special and memorable as each one of our facilities. 

As a Beauty Therapist you’ll help provide a friendly, knowledgeable and professional service offering a wide range of ESPA treatments.  You'll consult each client to fully understand their personal needs and be committed to delivering high quality, exceptional treatments.  As a Beauty Therapist you’ll also be supporting your manager to maximise revenue through careful diary management and proactive selling of high quality spa retail products.

You’ll also help to make sure the spa is kept clean and well maintained, and fully compliant with legislative requirements.

We actively encourage career development within QHotels so for those Therapists looking to become a Supervisor or first time Manager we offer our QED programes and you’ll find that many of our senior and specialist Managers as well as Directors deliver this coaching and training, so you’ll learn from very experienced colleagues who enjoy sharing their knowledge and passion for hospitality and Spa’s.
