Client Overview

“Be Yourself. Everyone Else is Already Taken”. We’ll be opening a thoroughly refreshingly unique independent hotel in Nairobi next year. If you love hospitality but want a little more adventure in your life we might just be the place for you, whatever your specialist skills and experience. We’re looking for people who thrive on stimulating new challenges and who will be encouraged to be themselves, rather than being treated as cogs in a machine. And if you’ve never worked in the hospitality industry, no matter, as an injection of fresh perspectives from newcomers will help to keep us apart from the mainstream hotel herd. If this sounds like it might be your thing, please send us your resume and tell us a little about who you are. We look forward to creating something rather special with an entirely special collection of individuals.
