Job description


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. 

Why do we need you?

How does a restaurant function without a server? 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!) upon arrival, 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!


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

  • Preparation of mise en place – setting tables, having silverware and linen ready, stocking service areas, etc.;
  • Explaining the menu – including daily specials and upselling;
  • Pro-actively assisting guests with their drink and dinner choices;
  • Anticipating dietary needs and communicating these properly to the kitchen
  • Taking orders in a timely manner;
  • Preparation of simple orders such as drinks, small dishes/snacks
  • Tidying and cleaning restaurant and service areas during and at the end of the shift according to HACCP standards.
  • Responsible for opening and/or closing of shift;
  • Responsible for overall guest experience at the restaurant during the shift;
  • Maintaining proper stock – timely ordering of supplies and ingredients to keep level up to par;
  • Co-responsible for training and motivating new employees *(zelf bedacht)



    • Minimum of 3-year’s relevant work experience in à la carte restaurant
    • Strong knowledge of wine and food according to market standards;
    • Excellent knowledge of restaurant service skills.

    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 organisation. 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 everyday;
    • Besides all of the above you will get a market competitive salary.

     Why TSH rules

    We live in a world where almost everything is always changing. The way we travel, study, live and work. People from all walks of life share the same passion: they love to connect! We believe in providing a fun, creative and inspiring environment where residents of all ages can live, work, play and grow. To achieve this we rely on an awesomely fun, smart and motivated team to embrace the student spirit and bring it to life. We believe in world peace and we aim to play our part in creating it!


    In 2023 we aim to have 65 locations secured across Europe, 26,000 rooms and close to one million square meters of shared space. Our new TSHLIFE app and digital platform will connect nearly a million current and former co-living and co-working guests.
