The Hoxton is looking for an Events Coordinator!
In April 2022 we’ve opened our first Hoxton in El Poblenou in the city of Barcelona and we’re looking for a charismatic Events Coordinator to join our hox team in Barcelona for the season 2023.

- Liaise closely with our Groups and Events team to ensure a seamless line of communication, so our guests have a fantastic and unique experience.
- Pro-actively provide input and feedback, look for opportunities to improve and innovate how we’re using the space and how we manage it.

- Take overall responsibility for the health & safety of anyone using the area, including yourself.

- Having used Micro Fidelio Opera or a similar front desk operating system would be a big advantage.
- Must be fluent in Spanish and English, additional languages will be highly valuable.
- Exceptional attention to detail in a fast-paced environment, juggling many things at once, but always dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.
- You’re looking for a place where you can be you; no clones in suits here!
- Passion for hospitality – you’re all about creating memorable experiences for others, be they guests or colleagues.
- You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once.
- Enthusiastic, confident and warm, you want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other and has fun with it along the way.
- Open and honest, with exemplary communication skill – we’re in this together.

- 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.
- It’s ok not to be Ok, we have a confidential hotline for any support you require about anything and a network of mental health first aiders.
- 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.

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.
