Meetings and Events Assistant

Here on the banks of the River Thames near Windsor, minutes from Heathrow, Egham station and the M25, the Runnymede-on-Thames is a lovely place to stay, relax, dine out, do business, earn a good living or build a great career. From our distinctively different riverbank restaurants to a spa that puts the treat into treatments, we pride ourselves on achieving excellence without ever being too stuffy. We aim to create an environment that empowers our staff to express themselves and progress through the business so if you like people and have a positive attitude, we’ll train you to be the best.

We are looking for a Meetings and Events Assistant to come and join our Operations team; you will be responsible for achieving the standard of lay-up, service, customer-care and the standards as set out in the banqueting training manual.

The successful candidate will ideally have previous experience in Meetings and Events or Food and Beverage but more than that, we’re looking for a positive, flexible attitude, great guest interaction and communication.

Because of our award-winning training, and our track record of investing in our staff, the most important thing isn’t your experience; it’s your personality and your willingness to learn. Yes, we’d expect you to have some food and beverage knowledge and experience, ideally gained in a similarly high quality operation, plus good numeracy and presentation. But it’s your sense of initiative, enthusiasm, adaptability and team spirit that will really make the difference.

For the right people, the sky’s the limit. Most of our management team came up through the ranks - and if you’re looking to try something new, there’s plenty of opportunity to move sideways as well as upwards. Applicants can also expect outstanding staff facilities, market leading salaries, great benefits and a friendly, fun-loving culture that encourages participation in charity events.
