Permanent - Full-time
With the increasing appeal of events in unique settings, it's not surprising to hear of our success here at Alton Towers. And as our new Assistant Conference & Event Manager, you'll certainly have your hands full. Looking after our Conference, Banqueting and Bar facilities, you'll oversee everything from training to the lighting in our venues. More specifically, you'll make sure all catering complies with hotel, company and government regulations, keep up to date with menus, greet guests and make sure all departments have a good level of communication. And all this while creating an open, but controlled environment for every member of your team.
To meet the requirements of a world class resort, you'll:
Be experienced in conference and banqueting to supervisory level
Apply your extensive knowledge of the catering industry
Encourage new ideas from your team
Demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills
Employ impeccable time management skills.
Alton Towers is much more than the UK#'s leading theme park. Now, with a 40,000 square foot waterpark, a luxury spa, two exquisite restaurants and a fully equipped conference centre, we're establishing ourselves as the biggest name in leisure, hospitality and tourism. Our two themed hotels are open 365 days a year, catering for both leisure and corporate guests, with everything from fine dining to Europe's first sleepover den. And to keep up the standards our guests have come to expect, we need talented people who are as serious about fun as we are.
What's in it for you?
Alton Towers is part of the Merlin Entertainments Group, which includes Chessington World of Adventures, Thorpe Park, Warwick Castle, British Airways London Eye, Madame Tussauds and much more.

And as part of the wider Merlin Entertainments Group, you'll enjoy continuous support and ongoing opportunities to develop your career.
We believe in equality of opportunity and employ people solely
