You will be responsible for the reactive management and conversion of enquiries to drive group, meetings and events revenue primarily for The Hoxton, Shoreditch, but with cross selling responsibilities across our expanding portfolio. We are looking for someone with a groups or events reactive sales background within venues, hotels or private members clubs.

 

What you’ll do…

  • You’re passionate about hospitality and committed to delivering a high level of service and love building strong relationships
  • You’re proud of your excellent attention to detail, organisational and administration skills
  • You’re efficient in using Microsoft office and experience using Opera PMS and Sales & Catering would be an advantage
  • You’re looking for a challenge and a place where you can be you (no clones in suits here)
  • You’re proactive with great enthusiasm and self-motivation
  • You’re not precious. We leave our egos at the door and help get stuff done
  • 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...

 

  • 20 days holiday (plus bank holidays), pension, competitive salary, and nifty rewards for going the extra mile and living our values
  • 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 skillset 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!

 

About us

 

Founded by Sharan Pasricha, Ennismore is a global hospitality company and the curator of unique properties and experiences. Based in London, the group is part developer, part operator and part in-house creative studio.

We began our story with the first of our Hoxton hotels, The Hoxton, Shoreditch, in 2012. It disrupted the hotel model with its open house ethos, celebrating the diversity and originality of the local neighbourhoods. Since then Ennismore’s portfolio has grown to include Hoxton properties in London, Amsterdam and Paris, the Scottish landmark Gleneagles and several stand-alone, well-regarded restaurants in London. And we’re far from done: the Hoxton continues to grow globally, with three new properties opening in the US this year alone, we’ll be introducing a new brand that will re-imagine the budget hotel model and have many other new concepts and ideas in the works. It’s safe to say our ambition to create experiences that inspire discovery and to do more things that are, simply put, fun, knows no bounds and will continue to take us many exciting places.
