We are currently recruiting for a Cost Controller to join us here at The Hoxton, Amsterdam.

We Want You If…
  • You jump out of bed every morning, fizzing with energy and jazzed about what you’re doing today.

  • You are able to work in a fast-paced environment and cope with pressure.
  • You are humble. There are no egos, and no drama
  • You have Excel skills; intermediate to advanced level.
  • You’re not precious. You appreciate some ideas work and some don’t. But we do like to try (almost) everything once.
  • You know that sometimes that crazy whacky idea is the one that changes everything.
  • You like detail, a lot of detail.


We don’t go in for strict job descriptions, we all like to get involved, however to give you just a taste.

About the company:
We started doing things differently on the East London scene back in 2006 when we opened The Hoxton, Shoreditch. Back then we were labeled the "no bull shit" hotel, because we took away everything that pissed people off in traditional hotels and did things differently. Today we’ve evolved, just like the neighbourhood we first started in, but that ethos of challenging the norm is still at the heart of what we do.

The Hoxton, Amsterdam is located on Herengracht with beautifully designed 111 bedrooms, a vibrant public area and Lotti's, our buzzing neighbourhood restaurant. The menu features an internationally inspired brasserie style cuisine with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. During the day, Lotti's is a place to meet, relax or work, and from Thursday to Sunday the bar plays host to local DJ talent.

We're now building a series of hotels in our favourite places, finding new and exciting neighbourhoods to open our doors in. The second Hox opened in Holborn, the third in Amsterdam, our fourth in Paris and we’re looking forward to opening our doors in Williamsburg and Portland soon. Whilst we're going from one hotel to many we don't want to become a chain and we don't want our organisation to become a huge machine. There's no hierarchy here, not in the hotels or in the office. We like team players, who work hard and have fun.

It's an exciting time to be part of The Hoxton, which is growing and evolving with a young team who are passionate about everything they do.
