Director of Engineering (UK & Europe)

The Hoxton, Ennismore Sessions House | London

We are currently looking for a Director of Engineering to lead our maintenance team in the overall maintenance, safety and security of the existing hotels and be responsible for the strategic planning and execution of the upcoming properties across UK & Europe.

You’ll be an essential part in supporting the continued fast growth of The Hoxton, which has now opened its doors in two locations in London, one in Amsterdam and one in Paris – and we’re far from done. The Hoxton, Southwark is set to open in summer of 2019 and we have exciting plans to keep introducing the brand to more neighbourhoods across Europe in the next few years.

What you’ll do…

  • Set and implement a maintenance strategy for our existing & future hotels and restaurants, ensuring the integrity of our product
  • Be the specialist to the business for all property, building, maintenance and engineering, security, legislative Health and Safety requirements
  • Lead our maintenance teams in their partnership to our Hotel and Restaurant & Bar teams when it comes to maintenance programmes
  • Manage a team of engineers by creating an environment where they feel empowered and supported, confident in their ability and able to be themselves

What we’re looking for…

  • 5+ years’ experience in Maintenance Management within the hospitality industry
  • Someone who’s able to see both the big picture and the day-to-day detail, can connect the two and combine consistency with flexibility
  • A natural at leading and managing others, you lead by example and understand that our success is ultimately due to our brilliant teams
  • 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…

  • Join a company that is growing fast and pushing to do things differently
  • A competitive package, inlcuding great discounts across the entire Ennismore family for you and your nearest and dearest (even after you leave!)
  • Lots of opportunity to progress and change it up across a diverse, global family of brands
  • Free lunch before payday as a treat at the end of the month
  • Time off to volunteer with one of our partner charities
  • Regular team get togethers, from our weekly drinks to our (pretty special!) bi-annual parties…we know how to have a good time!
