Job description



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


Why you’ll love working here

We live in a world where everything is changing – from the way we travel to how we study, live and work. But one thing remains constant: our need to connect. We believe in creating a fun, creative and inspiring environment where everyone can live, work, play and grow. How do we achieve it? Through our exceptional international team of lively, smart and motivated people that embrace the student spirit and bring it to life every day. 


We have big plans. By 2023, we aim to have 65 locations across Europe. That’s 26,000 rooms and almost one million square metres of shared spaces. Beyond bricks and mortar, our new TSHLife app and digital platform is also ready to connect nearly a million current and former co-living and co-working guests. 


We are The Commons

The Commons is the hub of TSH and our link to the neighbourhood, where all student spirits are invited to connect, share and discover over great food and drink.

It’s where memories are made at dinner and new friendships crafted over coffee and cocktails; where heart-to-hearts happen, and unexpected moments emerge.
