About The Bear:

Formerly a 13th-century coaching inn, The Bear sits serenely at the centre of the charismatic market town of Woodstock. Full of period features, oak beams, and rich interiors, it’s a hidden gem where the combination of history, culture and exceptional facilities make it one of the finest 4-star hotels in Oxfordshire.

Becoming a team member here at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts means joining close hotel and resort teams where a world of opportunity exists to develop your skills and progress your career in hospitality.

About the role:

The Bear’s Housekeeping Supervisors are hardworking individuals who can work on their own initiative and are key players in their Housekeeping teams. You will be required to ensure that cleanliness within all areas of the business is maintained to the highest standard and in line with company expectations.

The role requires an individual who has experience of managing, leading and developing people within a similar role in a 4-star hotel or similar.
