About the role…
You’ll make sure our bedrooms are always ‘fresh and welcoming’ for our guests after a busy day at work, or an exciting day out – creating a haven for them to escape and relax in – or get that last bit of work done.
Working as part of the housekeeping team, you’ll make sure our bedrooms and/or public/back of house areas are always at their best and in line with company standards.
In this role you’ll be organised, preparing for your day ahead, keeping on top of required supplies and amenities, always trying to minimise waste and reporting when more items are required.
Although you’ll be allocated your own workload on a daily basis, team work is also important, working together to complete other tasks that may occur unexpectedly, or helping other team members that need support.
In this role you can expect to fully service the hotel bedrooms (changing bed linen, dusting, polishing, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, restocking amenities etc.), where applicable restocking of mini-bar fridges, assist with deep cleaning projects and ad-hoc duties throughout the month, and work within the public/back of house areas.

At Cairn Group we're ambitious. With a varied and extensive UK portfolio of hotels, bars and restaurants in our portfolio, we're focused on continual growth and are in it for the long haul. We are a family owned business with family values at our core, with a growing team and sites UK wide.
This hotel from the Cairn Group looks as spectacular today as it did when it was built in 1870, thanks in part to the stained glass windows and oak staircase that have remained there for the past 150 years. With an elegant restaurant and cocktail bar that catches the eye with hints of its Victorian heritage, you will be no more than a mile away from the centre of York and all of the history that this city holds.
