The Exchange Hotel is on the lookout for some of the best people in hospitality and catering to join us at our in-house restaurant.
The luxury heritage hotel in Cardiff has triumphed as one of the best places to visit in Cardiff.
Since our opening earlier this year, the former Coal Exchange has gone from strength to strength and November sees the launch of our restaurant’s new home.
While Culley’s has been dishing up some of the best food in Cardiff for the past few months, the final piece of the puzzle is in place and the official restaurant will soon be opening.
On the Hunt for Signature Stars
The big move for Culley’s means we’re now recruiting for even more staff to join the incredible hospitality team at The Exchange Hotel.
We pride ourselves on putting our visitors above everything else, and all of our service roles are filled with driven and talented people who help us to deliver the outstanding service that’s expected from The Exchange Hotel.
We need a full team to be able to continue giving customers the best experience of their life while staying with us in Cardiff. Waiting on staff, mixologists, front of house and conference & banqueting staff are all an integral part of making sure we maintain our high standard of customer satisfaction.
Hospitality Recruitment Assessment Centre
Following the success of our previous hospitality recruitment days, this week, we hosted Cardiff’s first ever assessment centre at The Exchange Hotel
More than 40 hopefuls attended the two-hour long session to get to know the hotel and to see if a place on the hospitality team at the Exchange Hotel would be a good fit for them.
The day was a chance for us to get to know the hopeful candidates and for them to get to know us as a brand, a company and a hotel.
It’s also really important that everyone who comes on board understands the importance of the Signature DNA and what it means to work at one of our iconic heritage sites.
Like with previous assessment centres, the attendees were tasked with creating a mood board that represented Cardiff as a tourist destination and how The Exchange Hotel fits into the city. The teams had to create their board using newspaper and magazine cutouts to make something beautiful about their city.
Then came Pictionary, a favourite for everyone. The fun but challenging game helped establish everyone’s communication skills and helped to demonstrate the importance of clear communication.
The Future of Recruitment at The Exchange Hotel
While it may be easy to assume that The Exchange Hotel is well-established and an imperative part of Cardiff’s culture, thanks to the premium service and beautiful restoration, the hotel has been open less than 12 months and is only the beacon of quality it is today thanks to the incredible staff that work hard to make it so.
We’re always on the lookout for the best of the best and the management staff in Cardiff are set to host even more recruitment days over the coming months as the hotel expands.
