  • You can make the ideas a reality in the business, delivering on time and on budget
  • You’re not precious. You appreciate some ideas work and some don’t. But we do like to try (almost) everything once
  • You are humble. There are no egos, and no drama

  • Excellent discounts across the global Ennismore family for you and your nearest and dearest (even if you decide to leave us!)
  • Plenty of opportunity to progress and change it up while you’re with us – we’re growing quickly and globally and are part of a diverse family of brands
  • Training to get you settled into your role, learning academies to broaden your skill set and development that helps you think, make and thrive at work
  • Time off to volunteer with one of our partner charities
  • Regular team get togethers, from our team drinks to our (pretty special!) bi-annual parties – we know how to have a good time!
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.
