Night Auditor job title

A great job title typically includes a general term, level of experience and any special requirements. The general term will optimise your job title to show up in a general search for jobs of the same nature. The level of experience will help you attract the most qualified applicants by outlining the amount of responsibility and prior knowledge required. And if your position is specialised, consider including the specialisation in the job title as well. But avoid using internal titles, abbreviations or acronyms to make sure people understand what your job posting is before clicking.

    Night Auditor (2 Years’ Experience)

    Night Auditor (Part-Time)

Night Auditor job summary

A great job description starts with a compelling summary of the position and its role within your company. Your summary should provide an overview of your company and expectations for the position. Outline the types of activities and responsibilities required for the job so job seekers can determine if they are qualified, or if the job is a good fit.

Example of a Night Auditor job summary

Our hotel franchise needs a Night Auditor to join our team immediately. We’re looking for an ambitious, hardworking professional who loves to crunch numbers in between responding to guests’ needs. The Auditor will be responsible for all EOD accounting functions and will need to communicate with the security team to ensure the safety of our guests. The ideal applicant should be capable of working autonomously with no one to assist him or her with basic functions, such as checking guests in and out, reconciling accounts, communicating with housekeeping and taking initiative for necessary tasks. A flexible schedule and a willingness to work overtime when necessary are essential.

Night Auditor responsibilities and duties

The responsibilities and duties section is the most important part of the job description. Here you should outline the functions this position will perform on a regular basis, how the job functions within the organisation and who the employee reports to.

Examples of Night Auditor responsibilities

    Greet guests upon arrival, check them in and provide them with any information they need to enjoy their stay
    Audit and balance reports from the day shifts
    Schedule guest wake-up calls and reservations for the following day
    Verify that all EOD work has been performed by other departments
    Respond to guest inquiries, concerns and complaints as needed
    Answer phones and place reservations
    Run EOD computer functions so they are complete by the end of the shift
    Prepare guest bills for next-day checkouts and process reservation cards
    Balance cash drawers and record receipts
    Facilitate the deposit of guests’ valuables in hotel safe

Night Auditor qualifications and skills

Next, outline the required and preferred skills for your position. This may include education, previous job experience, certifications and technical skills. You may also include soft skills and personality traits that you envision for a successful hire. While it may be tempting to include a long list of skills and requirements, including too many could dissuade qualified candidates from applying. Keep your list of qualifications concise, but provide enough detail with relevant keywords and terms.

Examples of Night Auditor skills

    Secondary school completion required
    2+ years’ experience in customer service or hospitality
    Excellent communication and maths skills
    Ability to learn computer functions and other on-the-job skills
    Exceptional customer service skills
