Job Description

MOXY York is now searching for an energetic and ambitious General Manager, called the Captain. This is a pre-opening position for MOXY York, opening in February 2019 with 118 guest rooms.

As Captain you have an eye for details and you know what is expected of you to give the guest a MOXY EXPERIENCE. You are proactive, kind and helpful and you are a visible leader for the team. 

As a MOXY Captain you have a deep connection to the target guest and the brand’s core values – thoughtful, fun and spirited. You understand and resonate with what MOXY is all about, and focus your energy on bringing the MOXY experience to life for every guest and every Crew Member. 

The Captain is responsible for setting up an environment where guests can serve themselves – because they believe self-service is the best service – in a thoughtful, intuitive manner. The responsibility includes everything from check-in and greeting, to the atmosphere in the lobby, the beverages served at the bar, the service delivery from crew members, the efficiency of check-out, and every step and interaction in between. The Captain is responsible for the heartbeat of the hotel.

You build relationships in the community and bring exciting events to the hotel. You construct a property atmosphere so that guests feel like they are seamlessly moving through the hotel, rather than just checking in and out. The Captain drives revenue for the business and is constantly focusing on making the operation profitable. You use your passion for the brand, your personality, and your ability to draw a crowd of loyal followers to create unique guest experiences in a vibrant environment. 

The Captain is up and on the feet for most of the day, mingling and creating a buzzing atmosphere in the hotel, while maintaining a smooth operation behind the scenes to ensure the business is in order. Oh, and guess what? All of the Captain’s drive and know-how, ultimately produces a hotel that is as profitable as it is fun – because that is what MOXY is all about.
