Your job

"Good morning!" You've woken up on the right side of the bed and are ready to shine.

You prepare the restaurant 100% for one of the most important moments of the day: lunch. You assist in preparing all the smoothies, salads, sweet snacks, and sandwiches.

Then, it's lunchtime! You see businesspeople looking for a leisurely lunch, a group of interns grabbing a quick bite, and various other colleagues enjoying their lunch break. You greet the guests with your open, enthusiastic, and interested personality. And even better, the guests already know you by now. In between, you might help with the cash register or prepare a cappuccino with a beautiful heart on top.

After lunch, you start cleaning up, preparing for the next day, and making some (meeting) people happy with a cup of coffee, a snack, or a drink. Thanks to your friendly service, everyone is very satisfied, and you receive several compliments.

  • Preferably, you already have some experience in hospitality, but even as an emerging talent, you are welcome with us. You feel at home in the hospitality industry.
  • You know that working in hospitality can be physically demanding.
  • You always go the extra mile, especially when it comes to hospitality and service.
