Assistant Resort Manager

Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort and Retreat Centre

Full-Time Permanent

Weekdays Weekends Evenings On-Call Holidays


With a passion for serving guests, a knack for managing staff, and an ability to see both the big picture and the details it comprises, you will assist in managing the resort during the fast-paced Cape Breton tourist season when guests -- and opportunities for on-the-spot problem-solving -- abound, and during the slower-paced shoulder seasons when maintenance and upgrades must be addressed. 

Reporting to the resort's owners, you will carry forward Cabot Shores' original purpose and values, while also implementing the changes needed to keep pace with today's evolving hospitality industry. You will work with the resort's owners on business plans and directions, lead in implementing these plans, and communicate effectively with staff in order to mobilize them as a team.

The successful candidate will have the ability to learn and participate in diverse aspects of resort operation, including the practicalities of housekeeping and hot tub maintenance, the direct-facing roles of guest bookings and services, and the behind-the-scenes aspects of business and financial management. By becoming knowledgeable of all aspects of the business, the successful candidate will over time become both a skilled trouble-shooter and a skilled personnel manager.

Previous hospitality experience in a variety of roles is an asset, as is managerial experience. Additional skills which would come in handy include computer skills, familiarity with Excel spreadsheets, bar-tending experience, hot tub management skills, and a love for the outdoors and the simple pleasures of life.

Preference is for Assistant Resort Manager to live on site. On-site housing is available.
