Housekeeping Attendant

Organisation: The Royal Yacht Britannia

Location: Edinburgh

Hours: Full time
Duration: Permanent
Pay: £9.50 per hour

We are currently recruiting for Housekeeping Attendants to join our vibrant crew.

Fingal opened in January 2019 as a unique addition to Edinburgh’s hotel scene following a £5-million development. Already rated as TripAdvisor’s No.1 Traveller Ranked Hotel in Edinburgh, this former Northern Lighthouse Board ship has begun an exciting new chapter offering beautiful cabins, dining and entertaining space.

Fingal’s 23 luxury cabins are each named after Stevenson lighthouses, inspired by her rich maritime heritage. Sleek corridors lined with lighthouse images lead to the choice of cabins, from a luxury cabin with access to the deck, a duplex cabin with comfortable living space or the stunning Skerryvore Suite with extensive outdoor space to relax and entertain.

Berthed in the historic Port of Leith, Fingal also provides an exciting new events venue for the city. The spectacular ballroom seats 60 guests and features a moveable skylight (large enough to lower a car through).

Our crew is the core asset of Fingal’s brand, full of warmth and passion, with a shared vision for creating an amazing experience.

We are looking for an all-rounder. You should be enthusiastic, self-motivated, well presented with a good command of spoken English.
