Employment at Lark Hotels

General Manager

Lark Hotels is seeking a full-time, year round manager, located in New England. 

We are seeking a high energy individual who can assume responsibility for all hotel activities, who has presence and poise in relating to guests, and who possess the organizational and computer skills necessary to manage the office. We are seeking a hard-working, forward-thinking and honest individual who can learn quickly, communicate effectively with us, and offer first-class hospitality while being attentive to the needs of the business. We will of course offer training.

The General Manager performs all duties of running the Hotel: i.e. guest reservations, hospitality and concierge service, preparation and service of our signature small plate breakfast for Hotel guests, bed making and laundry, property maintenance, gardening, purchasing and cost control, some accounting of revenue and expenses, preparation for holiday events, and participation in annual renovation projects. 

Requirements include exceptional interpersonal skills, polished telephone and email skills, superior attention to detail, computer and organizational skills, some housekeeping and maintenance skills, and the abilities to multi-task, take initiative, and to employ situational thinking. Must be willing to be trained, show excellent follow-through, and be comfortable receiving feedback. Having culinary training or formal experience and/or carpentry/construction experience are qualities that would make applicants more attractive to us and skills that would be utilized at the Hotel.

This job requires a full-time commitment in all aspects of the job. You must be familiar and comfortable with the demands of a 24/7 job. Although the team at Lark Hotels will be readily available to answer questions and provide input, the General Manager is expected to assume responsibility for any issues or tasks that arise related to the operation of the Hotel and maintenance of the building, though all of those items may not be named in this description. The General Manager is expected to utilize all skills that they possess to operate the Hotel to the best of their ability.

As a management company, we are not involved in the on-site daily operations of the Hotel. However, we make scheduled trips to the Hotel to check in and meet with you. We conduct the bill payment, accounting and tax preparation, budgeting, revenue and expense management, marketing, website maintenance, property improvement planning, and issues that arise that are most appropriately handled by the management company. Although we are not on-site, we review most reservations via our online reservation system, we monitor purchasing when we receive invoices and receipts, and in general we like to keep close tabs on what is happening at the Hotel. Therefore it is important that the GM/s be able to communicate with us in a clear and positive manner. While we are interested in hearing new ideas and suggestions from the GM, it is important that the overall operation of the Inn remains consistent with our expectations. We hope that the General Manager bring their own personality and creativity to the Inn, and expect that this is balanced with continuity  with the experience from one General Manager to the next.
