Accommodation Officer – Based at Preston
My career at Myerscough College – Inspiring Excellence
The Commercial Services area at Myerscough College has undergone a positive restructure which has resulted in growth. A number of vacancies are available and we would love you to be part of this new and exciting team at a time where we are looking at fresh ideas, creativity, and a desire to improve and build on an already brilliant team.
About the role
Our student residential village and the Myerscough residential accommodation is an incredibly important part of the campus here at Preston. We are always striving to make sure that our customers receive the best possible service and experience whilst they are here, and we would love for you to be part of the team that makes that happen.
You will need administration skills and incredibly strong customer service skills, with the ability to liaise with many different types of customers. The ability to follow process and procedures, as well as contribute ideas to new ways of working, will all be great assets. You may have experience of accommodation management in a similar context, which is great, but if you have experience in hotels, reception, or business support, we would love to hear from you.
Accommodating our students is a major part of what we do, but we also offer conferences and events on a residential basis, so we operate all year round (except our Christmas and New Year close down period!).
Myerscough offers a generous holiday entitlement and excellent pension as well as many other benefits. Most importantly, we are a welcoming team with fantastic enthusiasm for continuously improving.
Safeguarding our students is of paramount importance. Our recruitment process has been designed to keep students safe and to ensure that we appoint safe and suitable people.
All successful applicants will be required to undertake pre-employment background and safeguarding checks.
The successful applicant will be responsible for complying with all safeguarding policies and practices, and for ensuring student safety and wellbeing is at the forefront of everything they do.
This post is not exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
We are an equal opportunity employer; we want all our candidates to have a fair and equal opportunity to secure employment with us. We encourage applications from all underrepresented groups: BAME applicants, disabled applicants, and LGBT+ applicants.
If you require any adjustments to the recruitment process, due to a disability, then please speak with a member of the People team.
As a disability confident employer, we commit to guaranteeing an interview for any disabled applicant who meets all of the essential criteria.
