Who We Are

We love what we do and what we do is important!  We believe that everyone should leave feeling better – this means not just our guests and owners, but also our teammates.  Everyone should go home feeling better because they learned something new, or had fun working that day.  Therefore, we hire unique individuals who work together to create amazing experiences for our guests.  We recognize that every member of the team contributes to the success of the whole organization.  No-one is more important than anyone else, and unless we are in it together, we can’t create that special experience for our guest. 

Your Mission

Should you choose to accept it…

If you are a successful Food & Beverage Director, with multi-venue experience, Virgin Hotels wants you.  

Virgin is a culture that believes in action, not navel gazing. The F&B Director must have experience taking ideas from concept to real life.  An understanding of execution steps and a handle on practical considerations (cost, budgets, timing, and schedules) is critical to success in this role.  Strong people leadership and development/ mentorship skills are a must.  Divas need not apply. The Virgin culture, starting with the big guy Sir Richard, is a roll up your sleeves kind of place.  At Virgin Hotels, we are focused on the guest experience, whether that is eating in one of our restaurants, ordering room service, or holding a special event at the hotel.  The F&B Director will be responsible for ensuring that all of these areas run as flawlessly as possible. 

Of course, we also expect you to focus the usual things such as quality control, profitability, inventory management etc. However, at Virgin, nothing is ever "usual" so not only do you have to be willing to roll up your sleeves and get things done, but you have to be willing to have fun.  We are looking for someone who is full of creative ideas and has the ability to motivate a team, as well as possessing strong e-commerce skills and a love of food and beverage.   Most of all, we are looking for someone who shares our quirky sense of humor, our entrepreneurial approach and is always ready to join in the fun!

The Nitty Gritty

The city that never sleeps will be home to a brand new Virgin retreat in 2022, where you’ll find all the little touches you’ve come to expect from Virgin Hotels. We’re talking beautiful Chambers, a personalised welcome and a bed so comfortable you might be tempted to actually catch some zzz's – despite NYC’s buzzing rep.

This is a new-build hotel, with 463 Chambers, meeting spaces and plenty of restaurants and bars, including the brand’s flagship space, Commons Club. You won’t find anywhere else like it in the city.

Virgin Hotels New York City will also offer incredible event spaces, with amazing views of the Big Apple cityscape. The perfect spot to wow your guests over a Martini or three, with front-row seats to one of the world’s most hip and happening neighbourhoods.

Virgin Hotels New York will open its doors next year, and the countdown begins right now. Head over to the Virgin Hotels website to keep up with all the latest news, and get dreaming and scheming for your next NYC getaway.
