  • Be a true partner to the business for anything that relates to looking after their teams, providing advice & guidance.
  • Implement and manage our policies, processes, and procedures, ensuring we are compliant with local employment law in all areas.
  • Position our brand as an employer of choice through effective recruitment strategies that attract talent and build a talent pool for effective succession planning within the business.
  • Work with heads of department on putting in place development opportunities & paths for the team, with input from our Director of L&D.
  • Keep the culture of the hotel alive by embedding The Hoxton values, promoting a fair, safe and inclusive environment and leading initiatives that engage and empower the team.
  • Drive our talent review process from coffee chats, annual reviews through to talent and career management.
  • Lead activities under “Do More”, our global initiative to work with local charities & community projects in the cities we call home.
  • Support managers on employee relations and performance management cases.
  • Work with the central team on European/Global projects and rollouts. We want to hear your ideas and get your input on how to design effective initiatives and deliver innovative solutions.

What we’re looking for…

  • You'll come with 3+ years’ experience across all aspects of Human Resources within the hospitality industry.
  • You’re passionate about bringing out the best in other people and are full of ideas you want to try in achieving that goal.
  • Experience dealing with legal and performance issues.
  • You’re looking for a place where you can be you, no clones in suits here.
  • You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once.
  • You’re not precious; we leave our egos at the door and help get things done.

What's in it for you...

  • The opportunity to head up our People function.
  • 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.
  • Great discounts across the entire Ennismore family (which you get to keep even if you decide to leave us!).
  • A competitive package and plenty of opportunity for development.
