Management Team Executive Assistant

Job description

Are you an organizational mastermind who always manages to stay two steps ahead of the game, as if by magic? Does entrepreneurship run through your veins? Is no challenge big enough for you? Then here’s the role for you!

 

We are looking for an energetic and motivated talent to step into the world of real entrepreneurs as Executive Assistant to the TSH Management Team! 

 

About TSH: The Student Hotel 

 

We are re-defining the residential and hospitality industries by developing and operating a unique hybrid hospitality concept. Six years after opening our first TSH in 2012, we have seen students, professionals, start-ups and hotel guests connect, network and stay in our high-profile design hotels across Europe – contributing to what we call our Complete Connected Community.

 

Vanity Fair recently labelled TSH ‘the hotel of the future,’ recognizing that our unprecedented approach is genuinely disrupting the industry. Our mission at TSH is to provide a fun, creative and inspiring environment where residents of all ages can live, stay, work and play, while simultaneously finding their purpose and changing the world. 

 

To realize our ambitious vision, we rely on a smart, hardworking team – full of entrepreneurial spirit – that is always looking to push the limits and improve our business model. Led by founder Charlie MacGregor, we have opted for a capital-intensive, fully-integrated business model, which means that we invest in (acquire) the underlying real estate which we then (re)develop and operate long term under the TSH brand.

This integrated approach allows us to have full control of our product, making the best decisions for our guests and brand, while also maximizing shareholder value. It also allows us to acquire large, emblematic buildings in high-profile locations – the average TSH comprises 400 rooms and spans 15,000 sqm. In every major European city in which we operate, we become a long-term regeneration catalyst.

 

We have proven that we can grow and scale our business. In 2012, with 30 employees, we were running three hotels with 1,500 rooms in the Netherlands. Today, we own and operate a pan-European network of 25 hotels in seven European countries, of which 13 are already up and running. In the meantime, we have grown our team to 500 highly-skilled TSH believers and have a team of more than 50 different nationalities. The positive feedback from our customers, combined with our current track record, is what keeps us going in our quest to redefine the hospitality world.
