About the Company

Are we right for you?

  • We expect a lot but we’ll give a lot to get the right people. There are 4 main things we look for
  • We want people with bags of character. We don’t want you to hide your personality when you’re at work, we want you to feel comfortable, to be who you are.
  • We want people people. You’ve got to like being around others, smiling and chatting because you like people, not because someone told you to smile and chat.
  • We need extra milers. So if you think the job description is all you have to do, then we’re not for you.
  • You have to put your heart into it. When you tell a guest you’re happy to help, you have to mean it.
