Guest Experience Specialist

Barnsley Resort
Job Description
The Guest Experience Specialist is the “face” of the resort, as they are personally involved throughout much of the guest’s stay, from the moment their vehicle pulls through the gate until it drives out at departure. The Specialist is responsible for checking all guests in and out, providing room and property orientation, assisting with luggage, transportation needed while on property, etc. Most importantly, however, is to provide and/or connect our guests with unique, memorable experiences that they will cherish and share with their family and friends. Unlike most resorts, not only will you check them in, but you’ll escort them while they follow you in your golf cart, start a fire in the fireplace for them, share your favorite memories of Barnsley, let them in on your favorite spot to have a private picnic, then exchange a fond farewell as they depart.
The Guest Experience Specialist is expected to uphold the highest standards of professionalism while also exuding a sense of genuine warmth in all interactions with guests. They will be intimately familiar with the entire property and all of its amenities, including the history of the Barnsley Family and the how the resort came to be. 
Essential Duties:
  • Review all incoming reservations for accuracy; identifying opportunities where their stay could be enhanced; coordinating consistent requests for return guests; assign room based on preference or availability.
  • Anticipate guests’ needs, responding promptly and acknowledging all guests, however busy and whatever time of day.
