What is your current position within the Resort and your day to day duties?

Head of Spa Operations 

As Head of Spa Operations I deal with all of the operations withing the Spa, liaising with HOD’s to ensure we are running effectively and with high standards, I also look at business trends and implement new ideas and experiences for our guests. I look at staffing needs for progression and training, working alongside the Hotel Manager to deliver excellent service. Working with our Revenue department is crucial to look at targets and gaps in the market. 

What do you love the most about working for Galgorm?

When our guests have a fantastic time and that the staff are happy, if we do not have happy staff we will not have a business that is extraordinary.  I also like that I am encouraged by my Manager to make decisions and when I do, I get to see them transpire.  

What would you say to someone thinking of joining the Hospitality Industry?

The opportunity that you will get is second to none, I came from a totally different background and cannot believe what can be achieved within the industry.
