Our first Hoxton in Germany is home to 234 bedrooms of varying sizes, a ground floor restaurant, coffee bar and streetside terrace and The Apartment – our unique meetings and events concept.
Reporting to our Director of Food and Beverage, you will be responsible for the kitchen porters and the deliveries. 

What you’ll do…

  • Develop, lead, and execute purchasing strategies.
  • Track and report key functional metrics to reduce expenses and improve effectiveness.
  • Receive the products and chemicals and arrange them in a way that makes them easy to find.
  • Responsible for the over-seeing the ordering of all FnB products and liaising with the chefs and managers to ensure this is done correctly.
  • Maintain company guidelines for refuse storage and removal and liaising with the contractors.
  • Oversee the goods receiving and work with finance on related paperwork.
  • Control of entry of goods as requested.
  • Ordering efficiently so that stock is always available without overstocking.
  • Inventory control.
  • Control of the stock at all times, ordering just what is necessary, without excess.

  • Bachelor’s Degree in supply chain management, logistics or business administration.
  • Familiarity with sourcing and vendor management.
  • Knowledge of stock and goods receiving systems.
  • Strong computer skills.
  • You’re cost consciousness and have strong negotiation skills. You have no problem dealing with suppliers.
  • Ability to work efficiently under pressure.
  • Passion for hospitality – you’re all about creating memorable experiences for others, be they guests or colleagues.
  • You’re not precious. We leave our egos at the door and help get stuff done.
  • You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once.
  • You want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other, and has fun along the way.

What’s in it for you…

  • The opportunity to bring an exciting new hospitality concept to Berlin (and Germany) and join an innovative, fast-growing, international group that’s committed to not just building new hotels but building a global brand.
  • 24 holidays (plus bank holidays) and extra time off to volunteer with one of our partner charities.
  • A competitive package, plenty of opportunity for development and rewards for going the extra mile and living our values.
  • Join an innovative, fast-growing, international group that’s committed to not just building new hotels but building a global brand.
  • The chance to challenge the norm and work in an environment that is both creative and rewarding.
  • Become part of a team that’s very passionate about creating great hospitality experiences and building a portfolio of brands.
  • Enjoy a free night at The Hoxton and a meal for two when you first start with us.
  • Goes without saying, but we’ll feed you when on shift.
  • Great discounts across the entire Ennismore family.
  • Lots of opportunity to progress and switch it up as part of a global family of brands.
  • Regular team get togethers, from our team drinks to our (pretty special!) bi-annual parties – we know how to have a good time!
  • An annual diversity and inclusion calendar of events creating opportunities for you to learn, celebrate and make a positive impact.
More about us...

The Hoxton is a series of open-house hotels, each in a neighbourhood that we love. Ever since we opened our first hotel in Shoreditch, we’ve never just been about offering a bed for the night. We want to be more than that: proving style doesn’t need to be sacrificed for good value and providing a place where guests can hang out alongside the locals and submerse themselves in the neighbourhood with vibrant, welcoming public spaces.
