Are you an experienced General Manager and ready for a new challenge? Would you be confident in the role of General Manager, responsible for 2 hotels located at Schiphol International Airport with 844 rooms, an à la carte and buffet restaurant, a burger bar, F&B outlets and various meeting venues? As a General Manager, are you ready to make your next career move?
As General Manager, you are ultimately accountable for everything that takes place within ibis Schiphol Amsterdam Airport and ibis Budget Amsterdam Airport. You are responsible for the efficient running of the day to day business operations and for sales, marketing and financial targets. Both the “guest experience” and the “employee experience” underpin your kpi’s. You provide direct leadership to a deputy GM*, a hotel manager, and seven heads of department. Indirectly you lead a motivated team of some 190 employees (including external housekeeping). Your role is to further strengthen the position of the hotels and the brands, by building and consolidating successful strategy, in close harmony with your team. Together with your colleagues, you see to it that the quality and service level within the hotels is maintained and optimised. Moreover, you are responsible for the execution of policy and procedures and for the implementation of fire safety projects and building planning, including renovations and extensions. In the year before us, an extension project is scheduled that will extend the hotel with 150 extra hotel rooms, along with major renovations. Among your assets are enthusiasm, a broad knowledge base, and extensive experience of the hotel industry. This makes you an effective coach, who inspires and encourages teams and individuals to grow and develop. On the strength of your hotel experience, you understand better than anyone that employees make the difference when it comes to hospitality and service. Inspiring leadership geared at empowering your team will see you achieving objectives and defined targets.
We do not have to tell you what ‘new leadership’ is about. You are capable of building a strong and effective team, where the fun factor is visibly present. Words like ‘empowerment, coaching, inspiring, down to earth, teamplayer’ fit your leadership profile like a glove. With your “Heartist” skills you can win the team, as you embrace the digital transformation and new way of working. You have an instinct for gathering the right people around you and creating the right chemistry for innovative ideas. You can run a hotel as if you own it; you are financially savvy; you have commercial acumen. Naturally you are guest and service oriented, and you have a warm place in your heart for the ibis product. You are familiar with the Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport region and have a relevant network. Your command of the Dutch and English languages both spoken and written is of good calibre. As General Manager you bring considerable experience to the role and you hold the appropriate tertiary qualifications.
As General Manager, operating in an international organisation for a strong brand like ibis/ibis budget, you can look forward to an attractive package of employment terms and conditions. You receive a good salary and depending on individual and hotel performance, you will be eligible for a bonus of up to 30% excluding a 15% superbonus. Further employment terms include 25 annual leave days, a company lease car, a laptop and a Smartphone. Within ibis hotels we work with passionate and motivated employees who strive for challenge and balance in life. The successful candidate who shares those values will be a valued colleague and leader. Personal development is part and parcel of our culture and there are ample opportunities for growth. You will work for a strong brand within an international hotel chain with a varied portfolio of hotel brands from luxury to economy, including Raffles, Fairmont, Swissôtel, Sofitel, MGallery, Pullman, Mὄvenpick, Mercure, Novotel, Novotel Suites, ibis, ibis Budget and ibis Styles.
