Contract Type
Full Time

This is a career development opportunity with a big, big difference. Bring us your hotel or leisure management experience, P&L responsibility and love of the great outdoors and you’ll be breaking out of the traditional corporate role and joining our well-loved, highly successful and rapidly expanding business.

All our locations are within the Forestry Commission estate, making them extremely popular with families, groups and couples alike. In fact, our net promoter score is only two points behind Apple’s*.

Delivering growth and solid P&L performance, you’ll focus on commercial and operating priorities: cost management, service delivery, organising, networking, food & beverage and retail.

Passionate about creating unique and memorable holiday experiences, you will be managing the UK’s leading brand of luxury self-catering accommodation and lifestyle experience. Living on-site at a nominal rent, you will be interacting enthusiastically with customers, enjoying the forest environment and the changing seasons while adding even more fun to our offering. Forest of Dean is our largest location with 120 cabins. If you have experience of managing a large successful business within the leisure industry this could be your next challenge.

An inspiring leader and effective communicator with a customer-focus and a positive attitude that comes naturally, you should have a track record of resolving issues, driving world-class service and achieving results. Self-motivated, self-managing and with the self-confidence to work on your own initiative and be decisive, you must have experience of relationship and P&L management as well as budget responsibility.

General Manager Skills and Experience:
This is an outdoor hands-on role that you must love. You will lead, manage and develop your team to help make our vision a reality: to be the UK’s most recommended holiday provider.
