A unique opportunity is available for an experienced General Manager to join an emerging group of tourism businesses located in and around Launceston, Tasmania. This is an exciting opportunity to take on a management role for some of the most prestigious brands within the Tasmanian tourism industry.
The business is comprised of 4 historic and iconic Northern Tasmanian tourism related properties; Quamby Estate, Entally House (Lodge / Estate), Low Head Pilot Station and Lake House. These properties feature guest accommodation, bars, a variety of restaurant facilities, function and event centres, a vineyard and golf course. Working with at least 4 direct reports and responsible for a larger team of up to 30 permanent and casual staff, you will be responsible for overseeing and managing all aspects of the operations and performance of the business.
The role suits a motivated, financially astute & hands on professional. The ideal candidate will be experienced in running a medium sized hospitality, event, retail or customer service business and ideally have proven experience in developing start-up ventures, including exposure to developing and promoting a new brand.
Prior roles in hotel and/or hospitality management would be advantageous, but the ability to direct, support and manage a small team of staff effectively is crucial. You will demonstrate strong leadership capabilities along with a genuine desire to deliver financial returns with exceptional guest service and satisfaction. You will have excellent communication skills, a professional and friendly outlook and an eagerness to take on every aspect of the business with a hands-on approach and a positive attitude.
High computer and accounting skills are essential as is prior experience managing a team and reporting to stake holders.
