ABOUT KIRKENDOLL MANAGEMENT
About Kirkendoll Management
Kirkendoll Management (KM) is a boutique hospitality management company that owns and operates restaurants and gentlemen’s clubs in the Southern United States and Aruba. KM’s headquarters in New Orleans, LA serves as the backbone for these establishments by providing day-to-day assistance with everything from operations and marketing to accounting and legal. Our mission is to empower our managers and staff on the ground to create the ultimate guest experience for our customers. Through its affiliate, Penthouse Global Licensing, KM is also the master licensor for PENTHOUSE, the iconic adult magazine and media company, and licenses its entire trademark portfolio in all classes and territories around the world.
At KM’s corporate headquarters, our executive leadership is divided into three divisions: Licensing, Nightclubs, and Restaurants, and our corporate Accounting, Administration, and Human Resources teams support all divisions. In addition to the daily management of our existing businesses, our corporate office is constantly focused on refining brand strategy, expanding operations into new markets, and finding innovative ways to improve our company and the hospitality industry in general.
KM is seeking a full-time Associate to support our division leaders and executive team. The ideal candidate is a young professional interested in hospitality, finance & accounting, legal & licensing, marketing & advertising, human resources, and/or business strategy who is looking to gain valuable, hands-on experience. The Associate will report directly to the Director of Human Resources and will work alongside division heads and team leads to support the daily functions of the corporate office and executive team.
The Associate will maintain regular office hours and report to the corporate office Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm – this is not a remote or hybrid position. He or she will manage the front desk and related responsibilities (greeting guests, answering the phone, etc.) in addition to providing support to key team members on both short and long-term projects. While there is a fair amount of administrative and organizational work required, the Associate is not expected to run personal errands – i.e., we are not hiring someone to get coffee. The Associate will be an integral team member and is expected to attend strategy and business-related meetings and make important contributions to all divisions.
The ideal candidate will meet the following criteria:
- A recent college graduate with demonstrated experience and/or interest in business and/or hospitality
- The ideal candidate will be available full-time, but short-term or part-time graduate school candidates seeking work to supplement their course load will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- An independent worker capable of taking direction and delivering quality work in a timely manner
- Excellent knowledge of Microsoft 365, specifically Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and related programs
- Experience with Adobe Creative Suite is preferred
- A go-getter who is passionate about creating the ultimate guest experience
This is a paid, full-time opportunity with a start date of 1/1/2023. The Associate must be located in the greater New Orleans area and fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Range $35,000-$50,000 depending on the experience
