Our Oxford Street Debenhams is undergoing a truly exceptional transformation that will change the look and feel of the store. We are creating an international flagship concept befitting of its position on the UK’s premier retail high street and are looking for outstanding Hospitality Assistants to join our team.
Upon completion, the Oxford Street store will showcase the best of everything Debenhams has to offer and that includes its people.
One of the first phases of this exciting transformation will be the creation of 3 new unique restaurant concepts. Each will be tailored to a different customer experience with a distinct food and drink offer fitting of each of the concepts, therefore providing something for everyone. It is essential that our Hospitality Assistants have a passion for delivering a first class service matched with a passion for great quality food. You will demonstrate strong product knowledge to promote our new menus – whether its high tea or champagne in our new premium venue, celebrating Britain’s culinary history and heritage in our Restaurant on 5, or recommending luxury pastries and gourmet filled breads in our Cafe on 2. Our restaurants will be more than a pit stop for our shopping customers; they will be a unique dining experience.
In each of these environments our Hospitality Assistants are the first point of contact for customers, offering a service to be proud of and ensuring that nothing is too much trouble. You will be calm and positive, thriving under pressure to ensure the customer enjoys a relaxing experience, no matter the time of day.
A strong attention to detail through ensuring high standards of food preparation and presentation, cleanliness, and keeping our restaurants immaculate is vital. Equally, an ability to demonstrate initiative and a flexible, multi tasking approach will lead to succeeding in this fast paced and fun environment. Being able to work closely with others, build rapport and naturally engage with all customers is essential.
Our people take pride in themselves as well as what we do, what we sell and the standards we expect. If you are inspired by our vision, and want to be part of our iconic flagship store during its modernisation and beyond, we would love to hear from you.
Please note our new Restaurant concepts will be opening from August 2013 therefore will not require you to start until July.
