Start Your Journey With Us


Ready to take your conference and banqueting experience to the next level? Let the journey lead you here. Joining a fun, vibrant and international team, working at the Huntingdon Marriott Hotel is a fantastic opportunity to make your mark on a truly global brand. If you’re passionate about service and resilient under pressure, you could be just who we’re looking for.


The role




As you’d expect, relationships are the most important aspect to this role. Here, you’ll be dealing with corporate clients and managing everything from business events to weddings. Crucially, you’ll bring the charm, personality and warmth that ensures our guests return time and time again. You’ll direct and motivate a team, while personally ensuring quality, as well as monitoring finances and administration. You’ll bring the ideas, the strategy and the ability to deliver great experiences that continue to bring people back to our hotel.




The restaurant




The Market Kitchen is our signature restaurant. As one of just five in the UK, it’s a bold and brilliant new venture into the dining experience for Marriott International. Serving stylish global fare from fresh produce, our restaurant offers wholesome, culturally inspired dishes from around the world. Driven by our dedicated kitchen team, this is a dining experience that you will be proud to promote.




The hotel & brand

With more than 500 global locations, we’re advancing the art of hosting so that our guests can travel brilliantly. Our 4-star hotel is a home from home, and there’s a real family feel to working here. We listen to our people, we learn from their ideas, and we are constantly finding new ways to make the Huntingdon Marriott Hotel even better than before. It’s this attention to premium choices, sophisticated style and well-crafted details that put us in the top 10 for service.




What you’ll bring

As well as a high school diploma or GED, you’ll have 3 years’ experience in event management, food and beverage, or a related area. Alternatively, you’ll bring a 2-year degree from an accredited university in Hotel and Restaurant Management, Hospitality, Business Administration or a related major, and 1 year’s relevant experience.
