Front Office Intern

The Hoxton, Amsterdam

We are looking for a so-positive-it's-infectious Front Office / Apartment Host Intern to join us.

Once the Mayor’s home, now our home, on Amsterdam’s Herengracht canal. The Hoxton, Amsterdam houses 111 rooms, The Apartment, our meetings & events concept, and our all-day restaurant & bar, Lotti’s.

Reporting to our Front Office Manager you will be responsible to provide a naturally friendly, helpful and responsive level of service to all our guests, ensuring they are treated as individuals and will want to return. 

What you'll do...

  • You're the first face our guests see, and you have your own way of treating them as individuals, making them feel welcome and their stay special - the Hox way
  • Deal with the coming and going of guests, making sure all bills are correct and contain no surprises
  • Work with all our teams to make sure we're always busy, and help our Front Office Manager with any overbooking levels
  • Answer phones, sort out requests, give recommendations to the best show to see and the latest pop-up restaurant to try in the area - you're the one-stop-shop for our guests to turn to
  • You’re our gatekeeper for our meeting room logistics. You know who’s who and what’s what.
  • Maintain the meeting room area, ensuring all rooms are set up correctly and kept tidy at all time.
  • Fun-time Friday, Pre-Pay Day lunch? That’s your domain. You arrange the regular events that everyone looks forward to.
  • And yes, there’s a little admin... Some expenses, some lists and a stationary order or two. But let’s face it, we know you love that!
  • Tech? No issue. You know your HDMI from your USB and your Mac from a PC. Or, if you’re a technophobe (like some of us!) you’re willing to sink your teeth in and learn the ropes. It is the 21st century after all…

What we're looking for...

  • It's all about attitude for us, someone who enjoys being helpful to others; that person who makes you feel confident they can answer any question and who you'd want to stop and chat to
  • Previous hotel (or similar) experience is great, but it's not a must-have for us - if you're eager to learn we can teach you what you need to know
  • You’re looking for a place where you can be you; no clones in suits here
  • Passion for hospitality – whether that’s a drink, a meal, an event or a bed for the night
  • You’re all about having a positive impact on the people you interact with, leaving them with a memorable experience
  • You’re not precious. We leave our egos at the door and help get shit done
  • You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once
  • If we got stuck in a lift together, we’d have a good time and share a few laughs
  • You want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other and has fun along the way

What’s in it for you…

  • Free lunch before payday as a treat at the end of the month
  • Excellent discounts across the global Ennismore family for you and your nearest and dearest (even if you decide to leave us!)
  • Plenty of opportunity to progress and change it up while you’re with us – we’re growing quickly and globally and are part of a diverse family of brands
  • Training to get you settled into your role, learning academies to broaden your skill set and development that helps you think, make and thrive at work
  • Time off to volunteer with one of our partner charities
  • Regular team get togethers, from our team drinks to our (pretty special!) bi-annual parties – we know how to have a good time!

More about us…

The Hoxton is a series of open-house hotels, each in a neighbourhood that we love. Ever since we opened our first hotel in Shoreditch, we’ve never just been about offering a bed for the night. We want to be more than that: proving style doesn’t need to be sacrificed for good value and providing a place where guests can hang out alongside the locals and submerse themselves in the neighbourhood with vibrant, welcoming public spaces.
