Wedgewood Weddings is actively recruiting candidates for our Manager-In-Training program. After 6 months of training, these “MITs” will go on to manage one of our AMAZING venues.
We currently have 2 training slots open: La Verne, CA and Boulder, CO. After the 6-month training program, the newly trained GM will be placed in a California Wedgewood property. We will cover all relocation expenses to the training region as well as the GM placement move.
IMPORTANT: All candidates must be open to training in either La Verne, CA or Boulder, CO and then relocation in California.
A bachelor's degree and 4 years of progressive experience in various hospitality supervision and management is preferred, but not required. Candidates with a strong knowledge of a variety of food & beverage operations, including catering (on-site and off-site) will have a flying start!
A Wedgewood General Manager (GM) is responsible for all operational aspects of the property. We look for candidates with strong, proven leadership, a pro-active spirit and a passion for customer service. For Wedgewood, our GMs’ abilities to manage the sales teams and drive revenue are far more important than cost controls and administrative work. Candidates should be independent, entrepreneurial problem-solvers with experience and/or education that is reflective of dynamic hospitality leadership.
Our GMs are leaders, coaches, and mentors that craft and create positive environments for their staff and our clients and guests.
Qualified candidates must:
- possess knowledge of hospitality, management practices, and basic accounting procedures.
- identify as independent and entrepreneurial problem-solvers.
- be genuine, sincere and possess a strong work ethic and positive attitude.
