  • Ensure efficient and functioning digital communication to the hotel
  • Making sure all actions are in line with our brand values

  • Ensuring good and swift communication within the team and between departments 
  • Always up to date on what to do in Copenhagen as well as restaurants to recommend to our guests


We offer

  • Salary package where pension and healthcare are included
  • The opportunity to grow and develop in an inspiring environment 
  • A workplace that is environmentally conscious and focused on social responsibilities (WeCare)
  • A job in an organization, where People, Planet and Profit goes hand in hand - and where we report on the triple bottom line
  • Professional and thorough training from start and ongoing
  • Company benefits and great discounted room rates for yourself, family and friends within Nordic Hotels & Resorts and Nordic Choice Hotels 
  • Together with a team of dedicated and passionate people, you have the chance to put your very personal imprint and create a Villa Copenhagen that you - and we - are proud to be part of.
