If a couple mentions celebrating a wedding anniversary in Amsterdam, you extend warm congratulations and promptly arrange for a bottle of champagne in their room upon arrival. Your meticulous notes in the system guarantee the front desk have precise instructions. Your approach is characterized by a genuine smile, boundless enthusiasm, and empathy, even when addressing concerns. There's no limit to your capabilities. In addition, you will be:

  • managing a variety of tasks, from handling incoming phone calls and internet bookings to responding to emails promptly;
  • taking charge of daily tasks, such as checking arrivals and reservations based on rate, market segment, payment method, notes, and traces;
  • collaborating with the Front Office team to ensure they are well-informed, providing necessary details and ensuring all backups are attached in the daily folder for seamless operations.


Proud to present

Mövenpick: the place to enjoy life. Inside, we create a space for our guests to enjoy by relaxing at the bar with a delicious cocktail or a creamy cappuccino. In our restaurants, you can discover the most delicious special dishes. We are originally from Switzerland, and we carry this luxurious gastronomic hospitality with us. ‘Enjoying life to the fullest.’ That is our mantra for our guests, but also for you as an employee.


And you provide that experience with an international team of seven colleagues in our beautiful 4-star hotel located in Amsterdam overlooking the river IJ. With a beautiful atmosphere in our team, we help each other during busy moments so everything runs smoothly. You will work in a hotel that works together with the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam, a total combined conference space of over 1900 m2, including 11 modern and spacious conference and directors’ rooms. Through the emergence of ijVENUES, Amsterdam’s new exhibition centre, everything only becomes bigger and better. On a lovely, sunny day, you can choose between a 10-minute walk or a 5-minute cycle ride from the central station. Or you can hop on the tram from the other side of our hotel. In short: we have it all.
