The McCormick Group is searching for an outdoor enthusiast to take a leadership role to help grow an adventure attraction into a destination resort.

Outdoor activities are at the heart of this property, located in Harpers Ferry, WV where the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers meet. Guided river trips, zip line canopy tours, camping, and rock wall climbs highlight the many activities you will oversee to create a remarkable and safe guest experience.

As Operations Director, you will report to the company’s General Manager. The primary mark of success is to effectively take on customer interaction, staff management, logistic and transportation planning, and inevitable urgent situation resolution. Reliably executing all that goes into the daily operation of a fast-paced environment with large volumes of customers and the ability to problem solve without constant oversight will allow the GM to shift focus to expansion and business development efforts as a restaurant, bar, and hotel are integrated to the property.

You will have multiple direct reports. More than an ordinary supervisor role, energy and interest to mentor a young staff into a team are critical. Responsibility for the safety of guests and staff is always priority.
