Banqueting assistant EMA

Your workplace

EMA is an international company focusing on the supervision of pharmaceuticals within the EU. The premises are located on the Zuidas in Amsterdam in the impressive Vivalige building. It is an international workplace where the working language is English. It is a high-end location with luxury appeal. The building has three outlets including the restaurant, coffee bar and Skylounge. In the restaurant, you serve breakfast and a luxury hot lunch, for around 800 guests a day. We also provide banqueting, so it can get pretty busy. The premises at EMA are open 24/7 and the kitchen between 07:00 - 16:00.

You will quickly get to know the guests you receive on a daily basis. This allows you to respond well to their (dietary) requirements and, together with the fantastic team, make everyone happy. EMA is easily accessible both by car and public transport.  

Your team

Are you looking for an international and dynamic work environment where team spirit is paramount? Do you want to be part of a close-knit family team that not only works hard, but also celebrates successes and has fun in what they do? Then you've come to the right place!

Our team is multicultural, open-minded and values diversity of thought and perspective. It is a big family, where everyone can be themselves. "We encourage the sharing of ideas and strive for continuous growth and development, both professionally and personally.

Your job

It will be another varied day with various activities. With your cheerful, tidy and hospitable presence in and around the meeting rooms, you will make sure your guests are happy and satisfied and receive a warm welcome. You know better than anyone else how to make sure the rooms are tidy and well-furnished with the right temperature and that everything works properly with lighting and technology. And as banqueting king/queen, you make sure everything is ready on time.

You are a bit of a jack-of-all-trades, as you also help prepare lunch. You help the kitchen prepare all the delicacies, set up the buffet and clean up left and right. In between, you serve a cappuccino to a company employee and help with events and conferences. So the guests are happy, and so are you!
