At Center Parcs all our accommodation has been designed and built to the highest standards, so we need a team to uphold these standards and exceed guest expectation. Our Housekeeping team is responsible for maintaining more than 700 units of accommodation; from apartments and penthouses to Lodges and Treehouses, and for looking after our public areas and office spaces, so no two days are the same.

As Accommodation Manager for a designated area of the village you’ll have full accountability for guest satisfaction, underpinned by the development and delivery of a robust strategy for meeting day to day operational tasks and targets.

Essential requirements:

  • Experience of leading a large team in a demanding service driven environment
