We humbly call this the most exciting hospitality project in Scandinavia. 

Villa Copenhagen is the new social scene in Copenhagen allowing the past, present and future to come together in an inspiring, playful and authentic ambiance.

We live by our values - Contrast, Conscious Luxury and Happiness. These values form our daily lives at Villa Copenhagen as well as guide us towards our vision of being the best hotel FOR the world.

We are looking for a Front of House Manager.

Personal and professional qualifications:
We are looking for a person who wants to join us on our exciting journey and who shows the same enthusiasm and courage that characterize our organization. We believe that you are a person with a big heart that values a diversified workplace, you care about mother earth, service is your passion, and you are a cosmopolitan spirit with a genuine love for Copenhagen.

At Villa Copenhagen, we believe that the future in hospitality lies in the digital, yet personal service. Our work is not behind the desk, but in front of it, as we are hosts and not receptionists. In that sense, we are looking for a person who loves to be there with the guests, not just by the guests, and someone who dares to poke the bear on 5-star service and to be part of a new way of working in a Front of House. 

You enjoy seeing other people succeed, and helping them on that journey comes natural to you. Work environment and guest satisfaction is always on top of your list and you never lose focus of your department's goals.

  • Following up with guests after departure
  • Actively listen to and resolve complaints and issues, settling disputes, and resolving grievances and conflicts, or otherwise negotiating with others
  • 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. A preferred place to work. We come from very different backgrounds and we love how that diversity positively influences our work
