YOUR JOB

  • As an a&o all-round employee, you are really an all-rounder: you work flexibly in different shifts like reception, breakfast, restaurant, bar and general service, and filling in for those services is not a problem for you
  • When working the reception, you will be our guests first point of contact with a&o – this means:
    • You will be responsible for the Check-In and Check-Out of our guests
    • To ensure all our guests enjoy their stay at a&o, you will cater to their needs and offer tourist information
  • At the bar your job is to serve hot and cold drinks and snacks, as well as to prepare cocktails
  • During restaurant-shifts, you are responsible for:
    • The timely preparation of breakfast-, lunch- or dinner-buffet
    • Ensuring that our guest are satisfied and that hygiene-standards are always kept
  • Receiving training (naturally cost-free for you!) for all the areas you may work in is part of your job

 

YOUR PROFILE

  • You have experience or a finished education in hospitality or tourism
  • Of course you are driven by a great sense of responsibility for the tasks you are given
  • You are a team player – working in a team, or leading it, comes natural to you
  • Even in shifts starting as early as 5am, it is easy for you to stay friendly, highly motivated and service-minded
  • Since shifts might start early or end late, living in Amsterdam or surrounding residential areas is ideal
  • You are 20 years or older, and able to work flexible hours and shifts (weekends, holidays, etc.)
  • Good English skills are a must, Dutch skills are highly preferred, the knowledge of additional languages is an advantage (preferably a modern European language like German)

  • An exciting, responsible job in one of the top-innovators amongst Hostel-providers is expecting you
  • You can experience an team-oriented work-environment with loads of room for developing and implementing your own ideas and your personal growth
  • Short decision-making-processes and open communication are a major benefit of your new working-context
