Rebranding and Recruiting – All You Need To Know

With the news firmly out that we are soon to be one of the newest and most exciting Oxfordshire hotels around, the team at Oxford Abingdon wanted to share a blog about our rebranding and recruitment process.


With the renovation work well underway, focus has shifted towards bringing on new staff to work at the rebranded hotel when everything is complete at the end of the year. We are sure that you are curious as to what roles will be available at the hotel and from when: initially we will be looking to recruit a Head Chef, Food & Beverage Manager and Night Manager as part of the senior team. Closer to opening we will be interviewing for Room Attendants, Food and Beverage Team members, Reception Team staff and a Maintenance Assistant.


An influx of new staff (and a new name!) will also mean a brand-new hotel culture. The team will be selected based on their personality and personal values to make certain that all our guests have a great stay. Experience is vital for our more senior roles, but we are also looking for a spark that cannot be taught. By creating a team that is proud of the hotel, all of our future achievements will benefit both guests and the community.


As a new Hilton Garden Inn, the strong brand values behind Hilton can be incorporated into our own ethos. This rebrand allows the team to put the guest at the forefront of everything they do. Hilton’s style of service is clear and focussed – all staff look to brighten the experience guests have with us and when you work for Hilton there is massive potential for internal development.


Hilton’s mission? “To be the most hospitable company in the world – by creating heartfelt experiences for Guests, meaningful opportunities for Team Members, high value for Owners and a positive impact in our Communities.”


Can you help deliver these standards? If you think you are the team member we are looking for, then be sure to apply here.


It’s an exciting time – not only are we one of the most convenient places to stay in Oxford, we are soon to be one of the most desirable places to work too.
