Who are we looking for?

Every day, we want people to come to work to make people feel at ease through delivering warm hospitality. To achieve this, you will need to be friendly, extremely personable and have the ability to deliver the company standards in each interaction.

As Welcome Host, you could be the first person to greet our guests, so it is key to providing that warm and welcoming first and lasting impression. Our Welcome Hosts follow the guest journey and will be supporting different departments often at busy times. It is essential that you can remain calm and professional whilst under pressure, reacting effortlessly to unexpected circumstances and taking them in your stride.

If you are passionate about hospitality and have the confidence to strike up a conversation with our guests, then this could be the role for you.

It would be ideal if you have previous experience in a hotel, spa, bar or restaurant, but a great work ethic is more important. If this sounds like you and you want to bring your personality to work, we would love to meet you.
