About us

There’s nothing complicated about dealing with business people.

They’re just people. Doing business.

By day, international marketing superhero. By night: fluffy bath robe and a box set.

Like Liz, who’s left her laptop cable in the cab. Or Mario, who’s secretly missing his cats. The early riser, who’s first in the gym. The sales team preparing for the ‘big pitch’ over a freshly prepared lunch. At Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts, we embrace the new world of business and understand that modern business travelers want a hotel (and a hotel team) that understands and supports them, helping at every turn.

Our guests’ memorable experiences have to start somewhere. So why not with you? We’re looking for a new Front Office Manager to take ownership of delivering exceptional first impressions – managing everything from registration and reservations to porter and concierge services.

  • Helping to prepare budgets and finding new ways to drive revenue from walk-ins and up-selling at the front desk
  • Oversee night audit function and preparation of daily financial reports
  • Manage day to day staffing needs, plan and assign work and establish performance and development goals
