What we need, in a nutshell

This is an amazing opportunity for an experienced Venue Manager to work at our beautiful woodland retreat, Sandy Balls Holiday Village.

Who are we?

Sandy Balls Holiday Village is a world away from your day to day, with more trees than you can… well, shake a stick at. We have resident alpacas, a bush-craft school and forest laser tag, along with the usual holiday heroes of cycling and swimming. But New Forest holidays are also about tranquillity, which is why our Retreat spa and cosy, cottage-style lodges and caravans are here to help our guests unwind.

Skills, experience and qualities you’ll need

We are looking for a venue Manager that can create an environment where a team thrive and our guests can sit back and take away memories that will last a lifetime:

  • Manage, lead, train and motivate a team to deliver delight
  • Oversee the smooth running of the bar and restaurant, the preparation for service, as well as overseeing service and supervising the after-service duties.
  • Maximise sales whilst driving profitable growth with care and flair
  • Carryout regular stock takes and order, as necessary.
  • Handle deliveries and ensure health and safety regulations are always enforced
  • Oversee and contribute to any project work as part of the upcoming development

It’s about your values too. We have a can-do, fun-loving, people-centred ethos here at Away Resorts, which is captured by our holiday heroes’ mantra of Attentive Amazing Lovers - have a read about it on our website and decide if it describes you.

One more thing…holidays happen at holiday times, so you will need to work your magic on bank holidays too.
