General Manager

London, UK


Company Description

We are looking for an experienced General Manager to join our team at The Hoxton, Shoreditch.

In your role you will be responsible for leading and supporting the team on the day-to-day management of a successful operation. And as the GM you will represent The Hoxton brand by delivering the unique ‘Hox Experience’ to our guests and team.

The Hoxton, Shoreditch – our first hotel – found its home in a former car park, and just like the neighbourhood, has evolved over the years into a fixture of the East London scene. Shoreditch has become one of the most happening areas of London, and we’re bang in the middle of it, with 210 bedrooms, the Apartment, and two in-house restaurants – Hoxton Grill and Llama Inn.

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.


What’s in it for you…

  • Become part of a team that’s very passionate about creating great hospitality experiences.
  • A competitive package inclusive of discretionary incentive and plenty of opportunity for development.
  • 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays), pension, family cover private medical and life insurance.
  • Food on us during your shift.
  • Enjoy a free night at The Hoxton and a meal for two when you first start with us.
  • Training to get you settled into your role with ongoing development that helps you think, make and thrive to set you up for success at work.
  • Time off to volunteer with one of our partner charities.
  • The opportunity to 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.
  • Excellent discounts across The Hoxton and the global Ennismore family.


What you’ll do…

  • Lead your hotel management team in the successful operation of The Hoxton, Shoreditch.
  • Partner our third-party food & beverage partnership to ensure a flawless operation between hotel & F&B.
  • Take full responsibility for the commercial success of the property.
  • Make sure our brand standards are properly brought to life in how we ground the brand in the local market & neighbourhood.
  • Lead by example in creating a brilliant experience for our guests that exceeds their expectations and builds a great reputation for The Hoxton, Shoreditch.
  • Make our own people a real focus, creating an environment where they feel supported, have opportunities to grow, and enjoy what they do!
  • Play a key role in managing the relationship with the central teams and owners.
  • And everything else in-between…


What we’re looking for…

  • You are an experienced, commercially savvy operator and have prior experience in a similar role.
  • Someone with a passion for hospitality, you inspire an enthusiastic guest-centred approach.
  • You have a hands-on approach and are willing to roll up your sleeves and work shifts if required, side by side with the team.
  • You are comfortable with the strategic as well as day to day detail.
  • You are a natural at leading and managing others, and you lead by example, creating an environment where your team can be their best self.
  • You’re not precious. We leave our egos at the door and help get things done.
  • You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once.
  • If we got stuck in a lift together, we’d have a good time and share a few laughs.
  • You want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other and has fun along the way.
