Scarlet like to do things differently so we don’t have a formal ‘Concierge/Porter’. All of our team ‘host’ and the most diverse and interesting role at the Scarlet is our Day Host offering an exceptional customer experience to our guests, whilst supporting the Front of House Team and Food & Beverage Team.

Key responsibilities are:

  • Front facing role in delivering the Scarlet signature ‘home from home’ experience, ensuring our guests feel well looked after as though in a friend's home.
  • Concierge-style service by interacting with guests, ensuring they have everything they need and are making the most of the Scarlet and the local area.
  • Looking after the Food and Beverage service around the Scarlet - serving tea, coffee, drinks and food - with a smile!
  • Porter style duties such as helping with luggage and handling deliveries.
  • Supporting the Front of House Team with check-ins and checkouts.
  • Supporting the Housekeeping Team with clearing trays, moving laundry and maybe making the occasional bed!

The best applicant will have a natural passion for hospitality with a warm, friendly manner, be able to positively respond to customer feedback and complete tasks within a specified time.  This is an active role so lots of energy is vital.

Excellent spoken and written English along with numeracy and the ability to use a computer
