Jean-Georges at The Connaught
Excellent salary and benefits package
We are looking for a talented and passionate Host/Hostess to join the Jean-Georges Restaurant team at the award-winning 5-Star Deluxe Connaught Hotel.
Found at the heart of Mayfair village, The Connaught blends tradition with contemporary flair. With its bespoke service, 3,000-piece art collection, three Michelin-starred restaurant Hélène Darroze at The Connaught and London’s only Aman Spa, it has always been the choice for connoisseurs of the art of living well. Jean-Georges at The Connaught offers all-hours informal gourmet dining; and the exquisite Connaught Bar has won prestigious awards for its masterful mixology.
Eclectic, imaginative menus are inspired both by Jean-Georges’ experiences of the Far East and his signature use of South-east Asian flavours, whilst also featuring his distinctive take on British and Connaught classics, influenced by his earlier working life and love of London. Sourcing the best of British ingredients, the menus also reflect the farm-to-table, fresh-from-the-market approach long pioneered by Jean-Georges.
As Host/Hostess, you will provide a courteous and efficient service to all guests and maintain the levels of service to the highest standards. You will be responsible for managing bookings and greeting and seating guests in a warm friendly manner. You must proudly represent Jean-Georges at The Connaught and be a true ambassador for excellent service, dealing with all requests and queries in an efficient and professional manner, whether face to face or over the telephone.
You must be motivated and highly organised and preferably have previous experience within a similar role. You should be a strong communicator, be able to work well within a large team and have a special passion for hospitality and luxury service. Excellent personal presentation is essential and basic computer knowledge is preferable.
