We are looking for candidates with a good all-round knowledge of service and who are passionate about working with people. You will need to enjoy communicating with people, have a great eye for detail, fantastic “customer service” skills and great organisational skills.

Don’t let the exciting opportunity to join our #exceptionalteam in the role of Waiter, Waitress or Bar-tender pass you by. We’re progressive, independent, and free-spirited – it’s just the fabric of the building that’s historic, not our approach to business!

About The Grand Hotel

It’s all in the name. The Grand Brighton hotel sits majestically and independently on Brighton’s seafront, in a prime location at the centre of an iconic city revered the world over.

The Grand experience is built on making memories to last a lifetime. It's in everything we do - from our stunning interiors and bedrooms to delicious dining options and a team who go above and beyond to make your stay unforgettable.

Whilst today you'll find gorgeous contemporary design-led spaces, like our restaurant Cyan, and modern luxuries and amenities in our bedrooms, we're so proud of our history. In 2019 we completed a major renovation project that restored our stunning Victorian facade to its former glory and around the hotel, you'll find other beautifully maintained original design features, including the emerald marble pillars in the lobby and ornate cornices in the bar and restaurant.

Our bedrooms are the star of the show. Inside you'll find beds fitted with divine Egyptian cotton linen, a range of pampering toiletries from Noble Isle and fluffy Grand robes and slippers, alongside all of the essentials a modern traveller might need. Plus, many also boast seafront balconies complete with sustainably sourced outdoor furniture - and with views all the way from the palace pier to the beautiful wreck of the old West pier, there really is no better front-row seat in the city.
