Client Needs 

The Hotel Solutions Partnership was asked to develop Position Profiles and Job Descriptions in support of a suite of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) so as to prepare the management and team for the operation of the hotels. 

Scope of Work 

Our Client was in the process of defining the framework for a collection of international 4-star hotels and resorts in the upscale / select service segment and had identified a requirement for the development of Position Profiles and Job Descriptions. 

HSP had previously created a suite of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the Client. They needed further to develop of a complete set of Position Profiles and Job Descriptions for all operational departments and support functions. 

The Client required assistance in collating, reviewing, developing and combining existing content and fresh inputs to produce a cohesive and congruent suite of documents, manuals and training programmes.
