F&B Intern

Job description


Food sets the stage, drinks create the mood. The only thing we need is a friendly member of the TSH community!

 

We are The Commons!

The Commons is the space within The Student Hotel that connects people from all walks of life, bringing students, travelers, freelancers, entrepreneurs and neighborhood locals together over the joy of food, drinks and discovering the other passions we have in common.

 

It is the every-bar/restaurant/café for everyone: laptop and coffee workspace for students, cocktail-bar for friends, lunch spot for business meetings, date night for lovers, and a casual group dining space for families of all kinds. It’s a place for drinks that lead to dinner that leads to who knows what…

 

How do we achieve this familiar and welcoming anything-can-happen social environment? With awesomely fun, smart and motivated team members who embrace the spirit and bring it to life. We’re looking for people who love sharing and discovering new experiences, who easily connect with others, and who believe that laughter, just as much as fresh juices and salads, is an essential part of well-being and that variety, just as much as Sriracha and saffron, is the spice of life.

 

Biggest challenge and WHY do we need you?

How does a restaurant function without great service? Simply put: it doesn’t. You are the cog that keeps this crazy machine running smoothly. An enjoyable, memorable guest experience is in your hands from start to finish. You are responsible for taking guest reservations, welcoming guests (with a smile, obviously!), answering questions about the menu, helping them make choices and serving drinks and food. You should also have magical powers – specifically, the ability to read minds and provide guests with what they need even before they have a chance to ask for it! 

 

As an All-round F&D Intern you will be trained and gain insight in various areas, focusing on the restaurant, bar and meetings & events operations.

 

How do you contribute to this? How does a day at TSH look like?

  • Preparation of mise en place – setting tables, stocking service areas etc.;
  • Explaining the menu – including daily specials and upselling;
  • Pro-actively assisting guests with their drink and dinner choices during lunch and dinner, taking in account dietary needs and communicating these properly to the kitchen;
  • Taking orders in a timely manner;
  • Preparation of drinks such as coffee’s and cocktails etc.;
  • Tidying and cleaning restaurant and service areas during and at the end of the shift according to HACCP standards;
  • Setting meeting rooms and providing service to M&E guests during their stay – welcoming, explaining the itinerary, delivering food & drinks during the meeting. 

Requirements

Background:

  • Currently following a Hospitality related education (for Dutch speaking: MBO Niv. 4)
  • Ability to communicate well in English
  • Important note: To be a part of our community a work permit is required.

Talents you have:

  • Customer-oriented
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and eager to learn
  • Flexible in working in different environments and able to switch between tasks
  • Accurate – your work place is shining bright, just like you!

What do we offer you?

  • An amazing work place to come to every day where you will experience a great team environment with a fantastic vibe and lots of positive energy.
  • The opportunity to work at a dynamic, young, international organization. We are a real game changer in the hospitality industry!
  • TSH cares and gives you access to facilities including a great canteen, gym opportunities and regular cool events.
  • Ready, set, grow! You will get the chance to learn and grow in your role (with the potential for growth within and across the company) and collaborate with other talented people who challenge you every day.
