Reasons to join us
We pride ourselves on hiring intelligent and well-educated individuals with a passion for travel, and learning. If you enjoy expanding your skill set and have a flair for working with different cultures, you'll flourish in a job with Beds and Bars.
Excellent customer service is at the heart of everything we do. We work in the hospitality industry so it's our job to be hospitable! Every employee in our company works hard to ensure that our customers receive the highest quality of service, and every month we reward the employee that does it best. The most devoted worker is rewarded for service above and beyond what any employer or customer could expect - with a £/ 200 bonus. When you receive this you are also recognised as our Employee of the Month!
Here are some of the incentives and benefits of working with Beds & Bars:
- Employee of the Month and Employee of the Year
If you work your socks off - you deserve a reward! Our recognition schemes for top performing employees offer monthly and annual bonuses, plus a certificate, and company wide recognition.
- Charity Work
Beds and Bars support a number of charitable causes all over the world. From the Team Margot Foundation to the Rona Sailing Project, we encourage and support all employees to get involved.
- Skiing and Sailing Trips
Every January we invite our senior managers to join a company ski trip as a thank you for 12-months of hard work. We also organise regular sailing trips - taking new additions to the Beds and Bars family to sea, getting to know the team at the top.
- Meeting New People
Working for Beds and Bars, you'll soon make friends with staff from all over Europe and indeed the world. What other company offers you the chance to get to know citizens of 10 cities in seven countries - on a daily basis?
- International Travel and Accommodation Discounts
Because we operate internationally and because we need to keep our standards at the same high level everywhere that we operate, we send our staff to the sites across Europe for annual general meetings, and training. We also offer discounted accommodation in the hostels to staff who are travelling during their free time.
- Footsteps Training Program - Career Development
Our Footsteps Training Program takes hard working employees from glass washers to a senior manager level in ten steps. It is recognised by Investors in People and People 1st as the best in the business.
- Work in the Best City Centre Locations
A core component of what makes our hostels and bars attractive to customers is a city centre location, with easy access to public transport. That means you will be working in the coolest neighbourhoods in London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin and beyond.
- Discounts at Europe's Famous Hostels
Beds and Bars is a member of Europe's Famous Hostels - an alliance of luxury backpacker hostels in over 40 cities across Europe. Because of this membership, all Beds and Bars employees receive a discount on accommodation at these sites.
- Competitive Salaries
We want the best employees in the industry and we're willing to pay a competitive wage to make sure that we get them. In addition to the many travel and accommodation privileges provided, no other career in the hospitality industry serves up as much fun.
