De Vere Orchard Hotel
Right at the heart of the University of Nottingham’s campus sits Orchard Hotel, an award-winning eco-friendly hotel. Our prime location on campus offers great public transport links to and from the hotel, but we also offer a subsidised taxi service to colleagues who work unsociable shifts.
It's a vibrant, fun team at De Vere Orchard Hotel and a great place to work if you want a fantastic career in hospitality. That could be in bars and restaurants, conferences, events or banqueting, reception or housekeeping: we have a great variety of opportunities across our departments and we regularly recruit for permanent full time, part time and casual roles for our team.

The Ideal Candidate
A background in hospitality alongside experience in both group reservations as well as individual reservations is essential. We are looking for someone with strong communication skills who can adapt to changing priorities easily. Knowledge and experience of Opera would also be an advantage.
