Cultural Marketing & PR Manager - Chicago

The Hoxton, Chicago, Illinois

We are looking for a Cultural Marketing & PR Manager, to join us at The Hoxton, Chicago.

The Hoxton is a series of open-house hotels inspired by the diversity and originality of their neighborhoods.  Everyone is welcome at The Hoxton, and we interact with our communities, bringing the outside in and the inside out.  As Cultural Marketing & PR Manager, you’ll be essential in bringing this ethos to life.

The Hoxton, Chicago will be the fourth Hoxton to open in North America following Williamsburg, Portland and LA.  Set to launch in Spring 2019, you’ll be part of an opening team that helps to establish The Hoxton in Fulton Market, Chicago and the brand globally in the US. Working closely with the Cultural Marketing team based in New York and London, you’ll have the autonomy and responsibility to drive a cultural and events programme that is locally relevant and inspires connections and discoveries.

It’s an exciting time to be part of The Hoxton’s expansion into North America with five US hotels in the pipeline as well as three operating European hotels.
