Sales Intern

The Hoxton, Portland, Oregon

Our story

Just like our doors, our minds are open too. Since we opened our first hotel in Shoreditch, London in 2006, we’ve never just been about offering a bed for the night. We want to be more than that, providing a place where guests can hang out alongside the locals and submerse themselves in the neighborhood with vibrant, welcoming public spaces. Then there's our eclectic programme of monthly events where we bring the outside in, working with local creatives to curate events unique to each location.

We proved that style didn’t need to be sacrificed for value and honest pricing is still very much at the heart of everything we do. We opened our second London hotel in 2014, followed by Amsterdam in 2015, Paris in 2017 and Williamsburg in 2018 with Portland, Los Angeles, Chicago all coming soon. Each hotel has its own character, however you’ll find the familiar Hoxton Hustle, incorporating the uniqueness of their neighborhoods using local designers, artists, and illustrators for everything from interiors to wallpaper, art and neighborhood guides.

The Hoxton, Portland will be situated in an iconic building with an incredible history dating back to 1906. Located in Portland’s Old Town Chinatown, The Hoxton, Portland will have vibrant, welcoming public spaces providing a place where guests can hangout alongside the locals and submerse themselves in the neighborhood, 119 bedrooms, a rooftop restaurant and basement bar.

The details

We’re not really a strict job descriptions kind of place – we all roll our sleeves up and get stuck in wherever needed – but here's an idea of how we see the role...

The Sales Intern will be based between the WeWork Custom House and The Hoxton, Portland. You’ll report to the Director of Sales and have a close working relationship with the entire Hoxton crew. Ideally you’ll join just before we open our Portland doors and help see us through the pre-opening and opening of the property.

You’ll be responsible for proactively supporting the Sales department. This will initially involve helping to develop the systems that ensure a successful opening of the venues and events going on.
