Opening Taskforce Intern

The Hoxton, Brooklyn

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, Williamsburg is on the site of the Rosenwach factory, the maker of the iconic NYC water towers. Featuring 175 bedrooms, a vibrant public area, restaurant, terrace bar, and roof desk along with The Apartment, our events and meeting space; The Hoxton, Williamsburg will be at the center of the Williamsburg community.

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 Opening Taskforce Intern will be based at The Hoxton, Williamsburg. Ideally, you’ll join just before we open our Williamsburg doors and help see us through the pre-opening and opening of the property.

You’ll be responsible for proactively supporting the Hotel Manager, Director of Operations and rest of the team to complete all aspects of the hotel opening launch plan. You’ll play a hands-on role in the successful opening of The Hoxton’s first US property.
