Beyul Retreat, a backcountry adventure lodge meets wellness retreat, is now hiring for an Operations Manager position.
This is not your average hotel job, but so much more. Come live in community, deep in the wilderness, 1 hour from Aspen, Colorado with access to hiking, biking, and backcountry skiing right out your cabin door.
You’ll be responsible for supporting the management of the day-to-day operation of Beyul, including but not limited to the front desk, housekeeping, and property staff, while supporting the General Manager in providing overall leadership in Beyul’s continuing effort to deliver outstanding guest experience, badass events, and financial profitability. In the winter months, you will have 4-6 direct reports, while in the summer months, you may have up to 18 people on teams reporting to you.
We are looking for a team leader and a numbers wizard who is nimble and systems-minded, with a passion for human optimization, nature, and creative hospitality
The ideal candidate for the Operations Manager position is a dynamic orchestrator, with an innate talent for leading others, streamlining complex systems, and enhancing operational efficiency. As a leader, you possess the ability to inspire and unite a team and are adept at handling tough conversations and guiding them toward success with a harmonious blend of strategic direction and a collaborative spirit. Your boundless curiosity and unwavering enthusiasm drive you to explore new horizons, both within and beyond the scope of operations management. With a proven track record in similar roles, your wealth of experience seamlessly aligns with the distinctive demands of our organization.
But more than just a job, you are both in search of a community where you can wholeheartedly immerse yourself, embracing a unique blend of living and working harmoniously alongside like-minded individuals who share your values and aspirations. In addition to the tasks required at Beyul Retreat, there is also a communal aspect to this position, within work and lifestyle. Beyul Retreat has a small, committed team that requires strong social skills and emotional intelligence. We hope to find people who can work collaborative, iterate on procedures constantly, and communicate effectively in a wide variety of contexts.
