Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Our Vision, we make moments

Mövenpick Riyadh Hotels & Resorts (MH&R) is in the "moments" business. We're intimately involved in important times in our guests lives. And you never know when a moment can be made. A simple smile in the lobby can create the positivity that turns a business trip into a new business celebration. An insider tip on the best way to spend a day can make an entire holiday. A romantic dinner for two can lead to a longer-term partnership.

It doesn't take much to make a moment. Just to be genuine. And human. And warm. And take steps to do the ordinary in an extraordinary way.

We understand that this vision cannot be achieved without great people who create and support work environments designed to produce exceptional results.
