Senior Manager

What's been your favourite project you've worked on at Apartment Group?
In 2014, I was lucky enough to redesign and reinvigorate my venue’s cocktail menu and also, I became more involved with venue operations and recruitment but the biggest project by far was hitting the ground running as Acting General Manager with our new venues in Otterburn after spending 6 months abroad travelling on a sabbatical.ew ideas.

What do you love most about your job?
The people; every customer and member of staff is different and every day is a different experience so my job is always interesting!

Plus, I’m lucky enough to work in an absolutely stunning wedding venue and gastropub in the heart of the beautiful English countryside…not many people have such a beautiful view from their office!s.

What makes Apartment Group different?
The responsibility you get to have ownership over your own projects and drive your own career is great.

When I was opening the public side of our venues in Otterburn, I suddenly was finding myself recruiting management staff, costing and designing food menus and work rota’s, overseeing venue maintenance and licensing and so much more!

I’d only ever worked in bars & restaurants, so when the opportunity arose to play a part in the opening of a hotel as fabulous as Le Petit Chateau, I jumped all over it!nowledge.

What's been your favourite project you've worked on at Apartment Group?
My favourite project has been helping being part of developing Newton hall into the award winning Wedding venue it is today being part of the project for 5 years from where it was to where it is today has been a massive part of my life. Along with a dedicated team we have taken it on year by year to make it better and better. In that time I have developed my career and developed not only as a manager but a person. It was an incredibly hard decision to move on to Le Petit Chateau but I knew it was time to develop further as the company expands.ew ideas.

I love how every day is a completely different day to the previous one. I could not stand to be in a company where you have no opportunity to progress or that everyday was like ground hog day and working for Apartment group is certainly not.ir goals.

Every Wedding, as each one is so different and personal for each Bride & Groom.

The variety, the interaction with a different group of guests each time and hopefully; the thanks from a Bride & Groom for ensuring their day has been ‘simply the best’ and the personal satisfaction for a job well done.

The involvement and interaction with the Bride & Groom each step of the way from day one with a personal Wedding Planner. This allows us to provide the attention to detail required to ensure a fantastic day is had by all. From Head Office to the car parking attendant nothing is too much trouble, which stands us head and shoulders above the rest of our competitors; providing the best service and management of each wedding day for everyone.
