We are seeking a leader preferably with previous hospitality experience to join our award winning team on Lady Elliot Island. Our people are our whole business and therefore we are striving to build an inclusive culture that empowers every individual to reach their potential across the business.

This is a fly in / fly out position with a roster requiring 10 days on the Island and 4 days off the island. Your accommodation and meals will be provided on the Island in assigned staff accommodation. As a remote appointment the only transport option is via light plane from either Hervey Bay or Coolangatta in QLD, therefore your appointment would be based at one of these locations.
