Management Couple in Uganda , Uganda

We're looking for an adventurous management couple to manage our popular mid-range safari lodge next to the River Nile in Uganda.
Considered couples must have experience in lodge and camp management, mentoring of varied staff teams and logistics in isolated environments.

Experience and Role
As an accommodation provider extensive hospitality experience is essential; you must be well spoken, presented and highly professional.
Excellent knowledge of kitchen operations and general building maintenance is required, as are strong administration skills. If you're multilingual it's an advantage as most of our guests are international and most importantly you must be able to manage and lead a large team of staff effectively and unsupervised.

Daily tasks include hosting guests, managing staff, ensuring the smooth running of the lodge, overseeing supply runs, general administration and maintaining high lodge standards. The lodge appeals to families, groups, couples and single travellers, so strong people skills and a good sense of humour are extremely important.

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility we are actively involved in the community offering English lessons to the women and providing support to a group of widows. Last year we donated a large playground to the community and remain supportive of the ongoing conservation measures within the park.
The overall role will appeal to a couple who are adventurous, unflappable, sociable and culturally sensitive, yet committed to running the lodge professionally and reliably.

Package Inclusions
• US$2,500 monthly wage per couple
• On-site private accommodation & communication
• Free meals & discounted staff drinks
• Yearly in-country medical insurance per individual
• 5 days off a month and 21 days annual leave
• Annual performance related bonus
• Work permits per individual after completion of initial 3 month probation period

Flights are not included in the package, nor is international insurance cover

Company Profile
It has been six years since we opened, and Murchison River Lodge continues to be the number one accommodation provider in and around Murchison Falls National Park. The park is a firm favourite on every visitor's itinerary to Uganda, not only because of the incredible wildlife and birdlife, but also the varied boat trips on the River Nile and the powerful Murchison Falls.
The lodge offers 3 different types of accommodation to suit the mid-range budget, and employ a local staff of 50 men and women. Our accommodation is inclusive of full board, so all meals are homemade on site using a combination of ingredients sourced locally and from the city of Kampala. The lodge has a swimming pool, pool lounge with wifi, river access and camping area for guests travelling with their own equipment.

Due to our remote location next to a national park the lodge is run entirely off solar. This means that all fridges, freezers, water pump, pool pump and power points are dependant on solar. The majority of our staff live on site, or within a 10 mile radius. We have two deputy managers and five head's of department who run their specific teams, plus the managers.
The lodge can comfortably accommodate up to 45 guests and as Uganda doesn't have a rainy season the lodge is open the whole year. The majority of guests are on safari from overseas and their stay at the lodge is usually for 2 or 3 nights. However the domestic market is travelling more, as are people with families, thus many of our guests are returning guests.

Our commitment to providing a professional service, looking after all staff, implementing training programs and constantly striving to improve the lodge means that the majority of our staff have been with us since the beginning. This is a true testament to not only how important our guests are, but also how important the men and women who work alongside us are too.

• A covering letter (motivation)
• Your CV's
• Recent references
