Student Job in the Hostel (m/f/x)

as of June 2021 – on call but monthly scheduled according your preferences – in Amsterdam, Netherlan

 

As Europe's largest hostel chain, a&o is big, diverse and always has a smile. We realize our mission "everyone can travel" through low prices and steady growth. We have set ourselves the goal of being CO2-neutral by 2025.

Are you looking for a permanent, part-time job? Perfect! That's exactly what we offer!
To support our team at the a&o Hostel Amsterdam Zuidoost we are looking for YOU! A hardworking and independent Student (m/f/x) for our reception and restaurant service.

Our hostel is exclusively made available to the refugee aid until the end of the year and is therefore an ideal place for the practical experience of students with a social-pedagogical orientation.

We are looking for enrolled students, working students, temporary student workers, university students and technical college students who enjoy a part-time job in the hostel.

YOUR JOB

As allround 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.

The reception desk/ bar area will be your primary field of responsibility – this means:

  • You will be responsible for the Check-In and Check-Out of our guests behind the reception desk or in the lobby as a guest relation officer
  • 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

 

YOUR PROFILE

  • You are officially enrolled at university and have a valid enrolment certificate
  • You enjoy dealing with guests - and you show it, no matter what time of day or night it is
  • You are able to work independently, are highly committed and a team player
  • Since shifts might start early or end late, living in Amsterdam or surrounding residential areas is ideal
  • Your English skills are on B2 level – Dutch skills are highly preferred and of course we are happy for every additional language you are able to speak

 

OUR OFFER

  • Staff members stays for 1 Euro in all a&o hostels
  • Flexible shift scheduling according to your availability
  • attractive corporate benefits such as discounted leisure activities and events
  • subsidized language courses
  • support for your further education in the form of various trainings
  • We work in jeans and a&o polo shirt instead of stiff suits or uniforms
  • Of course we provide drinks, fruit and vegetables on a daily basis – and as hostel staff you can join your team for the warm meals served at the buffet
  • Short decision-making processes and open communication

 

Are you that good-humored, service minded and hospitable person we are looking for?
We are very happy to receive your application (resume, earliest possibly starting-date).
