Rooms Management Trainee

Apply now Position: Rooms Management Trainee
Job no: 525541
Employment type Full time
Property / Office: Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London
Location: London, United Kingdom
Department: Rooms, Housekeeping, Front Office, Non-Management (Experienced)

For us, first impressions are everything. We’re looking for a Rooms Management Trainee to deliver a seamless guest experience from the second a guest steps through our doors.

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is London’s most iconic address. The spirit of the city infuses every floor. The park’s green vastness rolls beyond bedroom windows. Renowned guests frequent the hotels’ bars and restaurants.

It’s another world. A world of oriental luxury and the most attentive service. A world that’s all about our guests.

It’s also a world that’s been reinvented and reimagined to move with the times. With a heart of London’s heritage and an eye to the future, we use our own sense of history to set new standards – through kind, passionate and generous service.

For some hotels, a cheerful smile and polite tone might be enough to be a Rooms Management Trainee. For us, being the face of our hotel calls for much more. 

First and foremost, being a Rooms Management Trainee is about emotional intelligence. We need people who can read our guests in the blink of an eye: are they excited and ready to talk? Or tired from their flight and looking for calm?

Of course, it’s also about how you present yourself. We’re looking for a Rooms Management Trainee who can wear our fan pin with pride. And finally, it’s about pulling together, because a great deal of teamwork goes into creating the perfect stay. For example, if a guest mentions an early start, our whole team can come together to make that easier for them – a well-timed wake up call, a luxury car ready and waiting.

It’s a finely tuned orchestra, made up of exceptional soloists.
