The Exceptional Resort

Our partner is a very large umbrella company with a plethora of gorgeous resorts in the Caribbean. These vacation destinations are exceptionally salubrious for the guests and residents whom stay. You might have seen them advertised on the television sometime showing fabulous turquoise blue seas, and stunning white beaches where singles, families, lovers and more rest and recharge whilst enjoying sumptuous food and beverage experiences. Some might decide to have their weddings or special occasions at the resort offering life long memories.

The properties offer extravagant opportunities including many delicious restaurants, pizzerias, snack bars, banquets, grill locations, private dinners, conferences, pubs, cocktail bars and dining outlets. There is golf, pampering opportunities at spas and activities to fill the time. Scuba diving, snorkelling, water skiing or just lounging on the hot beach with a cool cocktail in hand. Just imagine! Whether the guest is staying in the hotel or one of the fabulous villas, they will enjoy a vacation of a life time…and of course want to come back time and again.

The Exceptional Role

You will be working across the resort where there are up to 18 bar outlets (depending on which resort you are positioned). You will be accountable for a team of over 70+. Working 5 days of 7 - depending on the operational needs, and usually long hours too, there will be a focus on hygiene, cleanliness and supporting the operation with drive and vigour. Coordinating with the chef team and reporting to F&B Management, you will be overseeing the entire bar facility including the stewarding operation and have the talent to multi-task and flutter from location to location in the resort if required ensuring there is effective ‘check-up’ in each bar operation outlet. You will be ‘hot’ on beverage costs ensuring the GP’s are appropriately managed. 

You eye will be keen on looking for ways to cut wastage and enhance revenue generation in the resort too. Working in a hot and humid arena, there will be challenges, stress and demands on a daily basis. This just adds to the excitement of the role and adventure. Working amongst a team of internationals, with a high percentage of local work-force, you will be able to lead, motivate and guide your colleagues to ensure service excellence for the guests. You will need to have a patient approach to lighting the fire within the team (rather than underneath them) to promote timeliness and high attention to detail.

You will be able to work in very warm climates, you will enjoy adventure, change, adaptation and realising the best guest service experiences possible. You will be a keen ‘trainer’ and a professional whom is able to share a message effectively and clearly. You will happily be a company ambassador and able to talk in front of a large room to share a morning meeting or able to facilitate a session on ‘Guest Service’ with PowerPoint or the like. You will be well presented and sharp in mind. You will have the gift of the gab and love chatting with guests, telling them stories and giving them memories of a lifetime. Your energy will be exciting and your passion to grow into new roles (when the time is right) will be evident. Your hard working drive will be infectious…is this you?
