Oddfellows Hotels are independently run and passionately delivered. Named after the band of misfits that was historically the Oddfellows society, we like our team to be as individual as our hotels.
Our employees are the crux of our business. They work and play hard, go more than the extra mile for our guests and understand that the only way to be great in hospitality, is to deliver with enthusiasm and panache. We like hotel experience but ultimately it’s the individual that matters.
In return, employees are looked after really well. We reward them, train them and we let them play a creative role in the way this exciting business is developing.
We’re looking for a Night Porter to enhance our Front of House Team.
If you enjoy responsibility, have a passion for customer service and can display that all important sense of humour throughout a challenge, then come and join our night’s team. Reporting directly to the Night Manager you’ll have a diverse role that ensures the night is never dull! You’ll give a sunny welcome to our late arrivals and a warm farewell to those leaving for the night, you’ll make sure our guests are comfortable with everything they need, and you’ll play an integral part in our overnight security. There’ll be other duties associated with the night procedures including cleaning for which we’ll give you full training, including detailed familiarisation with the fire and security systems and the evacuation procedure.
We’d prefer hotel experience in a similar role, but for the right people it’s not essential. More important to us is an engaging personality, an ability to handle responsibility, sometimes under pressure, and absolute discretion.
In return, we’ll offer you a fun place to work. You’ll become part of the ‘odd’ family and we’ll invest in your training and development.
Oddfellows, Chester, is a Georgian delight comprising of 18 bedrooms and 3 fully serviced apartments, only footsteps from the River Dee and on the loveliest avenue in the city. Bedrooms range from characterful attic rooms with double baths to huge duplex suites.
Events at Oddfellows are run like clockwork and delivered with style, all set in the private first floor expanse where boxing hares fight it out and the private roof terrace looks out over Chester’s chimneypots.
The Restaurant serves modern British classics with an Oddfellows twist - inside where trees grow through tables or in our Secret Garden where outdoor fires and canopies make al fresco drinking and dining an all-year-round experience.
