What’s the job?

As a Room Attendant — you’ll make sure our rooms and suites are always ‘fresh and welcoming’ for our guests after a busy day at work — creating a haven for them to escape and relax in — or get that last bit of work done.

Your day-to-day

· Other ad-hoc duties — unexpected moments when we have to pull together to get a task done

What we need from you

· It’s a physical role and you’ll be on your feet most of the day, so fitness is important

· Strength — with occasional lifting of items up to 50 pounds / 23 kilograms and or push/pulling heavy objects

· You’ll might need to bend and kneel to complete some activities

· Literacy skills - reading, writing and basic math skills

How do I deliver this?
