Description

General Manager

The Swan, Bibury

We have an exciting opportunity for a General Manager to build on the success of the beautiful Swan Hotel, Bibury, part of the stunning collection of seven Cotswolds Inns & Hotels.

Located in the charming Cotswold village of Bibury, once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England.’ Tourist hotspots in Bibury include Arlington Row, a row of weaver’s cottages owned by the National Trust, the River Coln, Bibury Trout Farm and the Church of St Mary, a Saxon Church dating back to AD1130. It is these elements that make Bibury such a huge draw for local and international tourist, as well as a dream wedding location.

The Swan is a busy 22 bedroomed hotel, with bar, courtyard, private garden, and a Double Rosette-awarded brasserie, which welcomes residents and visitors to the village alike. It is a fast-paced environment hosting upwards of 45 weddings a year, large numbers of tourists, tour groups, along with other events and conferences throughout the year.

The next General Manager of The Swan Hotel will need to have experience in delivering both high volume premium function and food occasions and will have previous hotel experience. The ability to train and motivate the team to offer great service especially during peak trading will be essential. Building and maintaining strong relationships between each department within the hotel will be vital. Impeccable retail standards will be essential to the future success of the hotel.

This is a live-out position which is reflected in the salary banding. So, if you love country life, thrive on operating a complex seasonal business and are looking for your next challenge this could be the right move for you. 


What can we offer you?

  • Annual performance-based bonus
  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays
  • Medical & Dental cash plan including video GP appointments
  • Enhanced pension scheme
  • Life Assurance
  • 25%-40% staff discount off food and drink, across all our pubs and hotels for you and your friends and family (increases with length of service)
  • Discounted hotel stays
  • Full induction and training
  • Opportunity to grow in your role
  • The option to receive 30% of your earnings as you earn them with Wagestream. This means you won’t need to wait until payday for your money.
  • Retail discounts with the My Fuller’s Hub

Could you write the next chapter of our story?

As our General Manager, you’ll be the driving force behind the success of our businesses.

Ultimately, the smiles on faces, the return visits and the positive reviews are all down to you - making this one of the most rewarding jobs in the hospitality business.

For any General Manager, Fuller’s is a special company to work for. You’ll get lots of help and support from our Support Office when you need it, but also plenty of encouragement to put your own spin on the pub.

You can take plenty of pride in the role too, knowing that Fuller’s ales, food and service has a reputation as some of the very best in the business.

You’ll need to be commercially minded, making the right decisions to keep customers pouring through the doors. Importantly though, you’ll be a people-person too - mindful that to many, you’re still a good old-fashioned ‘Landlord’.

And of course, you’ll have a team to look after. So, we’re looking for somebody with true leadership qualities – able to keep both the customers and the team smiling.

Cotswold Inns & Hotels is family and a place where everyone belongs

Our values
• Do things the right way
• Being part of a family
• Celebrating individuality
• Always asking what’s next?
