The Cunard Building has stood proudly on Liverpool’s waterfront for 100 years as one of the iconic three graces.
Now, Signature Living has acquired the building to bring a breath of fresh air into the beautiful space.
The Cunard Building is Liverpool’s most glamorous events space and Signature Living are set to enhance and improve an already amazing location.
To help us recruit the perfect Signature stars to join the family, we hosted one of our famous recruitment days to get to know all the potential new hospitality staff that will work front of house in the bar and restaurant.
The session proved so popular that the hopeful applicants had to be split into two sessions to accommodate for the unprecedented interest in working on the front line in the Liverpool landmark. Led by Signature Living’s recruitment officers, Michael and Rachel, the candidates were tasked with three activities throughout the two-hour sessions.
These activities are the perfect way to bring the best out of everyone and to see how they interact with a team and how they use their heads to solve common problems.
The first task saw the group split into teams for Pictionary-style charades, sculpting playdoh to illustrate Signature’s core values. There was one catch to the fun activity – no clues. While there was plenty of laughter during the game, it helped to demonstrate an important point: communication is key. It was hard to guess the sculptures (very hard in some cases!) and without communication, it was nearly impossible.
Next was a tower-building challenge. The premise was simple: build a tower out of paper that is strong enough to hold something of substantial weight. Of course, we weren’t making things easy and for this task, the teams were only able to use one hand per person, resulting in the need for effective communication and teamwork. It was a test of patience too, a skill that is required in a fast-paced industry like hospitality.
Finally, was the ever popular Connection Web. This was an immersive team building exercise that required everyone to find something in common with someone else in the group. Once a connection was found with the first person, a ball of string was tossed to the person who had the connection. This created a physical web of similarities between the large group.
The Signature Personality
At Signature Living, we don’t do things by halves, and it’s that mindset that is encapsulated in all of our staff across all roles.
Personality is massively important and our staff are what makes us stand out in the crowd. Everyone’s bubbly personality and extra-mile attitude are what makes our guests have the time of their lives and return for more.
Our core values are cemented in building long-term relationships with our guests and diners while creating value for them. Hospitality staff are some of the key players in achieving impeccable customer satisfaction.
A Liverpool Icon
The Cunard Building at Pier Head is a Grade II* listed building, nestled between her two equally famous sisters: The Liver Building and the Port of Liverpool Building.
The lasting impression that the stunning building leaves on all who set eyes on it is unrivalled. The interior is equally as awe-inspiring with luxurious décor and exciting plans in place to make it even better.
What could be more exciting than working in one of Liverpool’s most famous buildings?
