The low down as a General Assistant…

Our General Assistants are at the heart of Condover Hall’s smooth-running operation. With many different departments across the centre, they’ll be plenty of variety in your role to keep you motivated each day!

You’ll help with housekeeping duties and ensure that guest bedrooms, bathrooms and communal areas are spick and span ready for the return of our guests after an action-packed day outdoors.

Whilst in the restaurant, you’ll help to cater for our hungry guests. From setting up the salad bar and prepping cutlery and trays to serving guests and cleaning down after mealtimes, you’ll help our guests with a smile and ensure each service runs like clockwork.

Maintenance work will involve the upkeep of the site and grounds to ensure it’s looking it’s best for our guests.

Helping the admin team may include reception duties and preparing arrival paperwork.

As a team player, you’ll be happy and flexible to undertake other duties when needed including cleaning and maintaining activity equipment, welcoming and serving guests on reception and our on-site shop and ensuring the well-being of our guests during any night porter shifts.
