You will take a very hands-on lead in a small team that must pull together to deliver a wide range of services, often under considerable pressure.
About half of your time will be devoted to our hospital partnerships - building personal relationships with doctors and other staff, briefing them about new students, planning and scheduling, and troubleshooting day-to-day problems that arise when students are on placement. As a representative of Gap Medics, you must be confident, highly professional and immaculately presented.
Your team will include a full time Caterer, a Housekeeper and a Night-time Student Supervisor, allowing you to provide a comprehensive hospitality service with a friendly family feel and fun social atmosphere. Again, you will be very hands-on, sharing everything from greeting students on arrival at the airport to welcome briefings, organising barbecue nights and helping students through any problems they have.
As the administrative manager, you will also be responsible for budget and accounts preparation, handling administration with hospitals and maintaining a very close day-to-day working relationship with the team in our UK Head Office by phone and email
More than anything, we are looking for candidates with the personality, confidence and ambition to fit this role. We believe the role may appeal to:
• Hospitality managers or assistant managers with experience of managing small hotels or guesthouses
• Schoolteachers, with experience of running school trips for 14-18 year olds
• Travel and tourism managers who have experience of managing large groups.
If you are looking for a job that lets you plan your diary well in advance, go home at 5.30pm and have most weekends off, this is not for you! If you’re looking for an adventure of a lifetime, working closely with senior doctors and government officials, a huge challenge with a huge sense of reward and great scope for career development, then perhaps it is.
