And by encouraging ideas and adapting to each new situation, you’ll be a driving force behind the housekeeping team.

You’ll have previous housekeeping experience at a supervisory level already and being committed to the industry, you’ll be looking to take the next step in your management career. You’ll also have a relevant Housekeeping qualification, or will be working towards this.

You’re highly efficient and organised, able to balance multiple deadlines and adapt to changing needs, all of which will be critical to your success.

And in-depth knowledge of housekeeping techniques, you can be relied on to deliver to the highest standard.

This is your opportunity to use your managerial skills and passion for Housekeeping to deliver the exceptional.

This role will be based in London. In return you can look forward to working in a unique and stimulating work environment, and be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including 33 days holiday (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (with the option for flexibility – to increase or draw down as salary) and meals on duty.
