Who we are:
We love what we do and what we do is important! We believe that everyone should leave feeling better this means not just our guests, but also our teammates. Everyone should go home feeling better because they learned something new, or had fun working that day. Therefore, we hire unique individuals who work together to create amazing experiences for our guests. We recognize that every member of the team contributes to the success of the whole hotel. No-one is more important than anyone else, and unless we are in it together, we can’t create that special experience for our guest.
Why work with Virgin Hotels:
Because it is fun, of course! But we appreciate that fun isn’t always enough – what else is in it for you?

The main gig for the Housekeeping Supervisor is to ensure that our rooms are cleaned and that we have a clean and well maintained hotel as well as a happy housekeeping team. This takes loads of coordination and isn’t for the faint of heart.
The Housekeeping Supervisor is always visible and is constantly walking the floor, checking rooms and assisting as needed. They do this by working with a collaborative hotel-wide team. We believe that life is better when you love your job and we are looking for someone who loves Housekeeping (who couldn’t, right?)!
