Nigel Wright are pleased to be supporting The Inn Collection Group with the recruitment of a Compliance Manager. The Inn Collection Group is a fast growing, PE backed, highly acquisitive Hospitality Group, operating across the North of England. There are currently 16 operational business units within the Group and a healthy pipeline of acquisition and new build opportunity ahead that will result in the group doubling in size over the next 12-24 months.
As a business, they focus on creating a portfolio of venues in great locations where people receive a premium offering in an environment where they feel relaxed, safe, and secure. The role of Compliance Manager is paramount to continuing this as their portfolio continues to grow.
The Compliance Manager will be responsible for all sites within the group, working closely with the General Managers who have ultimate responsibility on a day to day basis. The role will look after all elements of Compliance including H&S, Food Safety, Fire Safety and Security. This means that the successful candidate must be able to demonstrate strong stakeholder engagement skills both internally and externally, and whilst it is expected that the senior staff members of site will be the subject matter expert for each area, there will be a natural interest in keeping up to date with new regulations.
There is a need to manage the administration of the Safety system, which is present at all sites, and therefore a close working relationship with the Account Manager is essential. Each site is responsible for updating the systems; however, the Compliance Manager will ensure the system is used properly and that new employees understand the importance of keeping this up to date. The Compliance Manager will take pride in spending time with each of the sites, to help them do the best job possible to ensure their staff and customers are safe at all times, therefore it is expected that you will need to be away from home most weeks for a night or 2.
Experience within a similar role is preferred, and it may be that this has been gained across hospitality or retail. The role would also suit an experienced General Manager who has had similar responsibilities in a Management position. Whilst preference is for the role to be based at Alnwick, the role will be office based c2 days a week, with the rest of the week spent ‘on location’. This is an excellent opportunity be part of a close team that are on an exciting journey, creating a location of choice for dining and accommodation for their customer base.
