You are the first person a hotel guest sees on arrival. Often, you may be the last person departing guests see before they leave – and the impression you create is everything. So how can you ensure you go beyond the day to day to deliver the sort of service that makes you a portering Hero? Well…
What makes a hotel porter a Hero?
Get stuck in: One things is for sure: the life of a hotel porter is never dull. Yes, part of the job is lifting and carrying, but there is so much more to the position than that – and the more you make yourself an invaluable part of your guests’ stays, the more rewarding you are likely to find it – and the more shifts you are likely to receive as a result.
Service, service, service: For guests in an unfamiliar hotel in an unfamiliar city, you can be a real lifeline. The porters who make the greatest impression on their employers are the porters who also make the greatest impression on their guests.
Join the team: One of the simplest ways to ensure you are commissioned for more than one shift is to make yourself a part of the team. So rather than staying on the fringes and acting like the temporary worker, get to know the people who work shifts with you and make an effort to involve yourself.

Hotel porter jobs London – the Q&A
Can I choose my hours?
Yes. The broad job description of the hotel porter means there’s work at all times of day and you should be able to find a porter role that fits your availability. That said, as someone who has experience of hotel jobs in London, you’ll know that portering jobs have their peak periods (arrivals and departures), so the greater your availability (and the greater your willingness to cover split shifts) the more work you are likely to be offered. Prefer to work at night? No problem we also have night porter shifts. Want to work in a different environment, we also have other sectors like hospital porter roles.
What sort of work will I be doing?
If you have the experience as a hotel porter we’re looking for, you will already know much of what the job may entail, although the specific requirements can vary from London hotel to London hotel. Typically, you will be front of house, greeting guests, carrying their luggage to and from guest rooms, answering questions, providing directions and, perhaps, ordering taxis, arranging restaurant reservations or booking tickets.
If your hotel has conference facilities you may be preparing meeting rooms or setting up equipment such as projectors, display screens and laptops. On any given day you could find yourself as luggage porter, room attendant, linen porter and more.

Will the job stay temporary?
All the opportunities offered on Staff Heroes are temporary, and it may be that your employer can only commit to offering a shift or two to cover for another employee. It may also be the case that temporary and part time suits your lifestyle or other commitments perfectly.
However, we have had numerous occasions where a single shift has expanded to several, and where a temporary opportunity has eventually led to something more permanent.

"Recruiting temp staff in the hospitality industry is a massive headache for everyone, yet nothing has been done about it from a technology standpoint. Temp Staff turnover is significant creating high recruitment costs and this area is screaming for innovation. Staff Heroes have got it spot on and are on to something which is going to be big”Olly Etridge - First Restaurant Group
"The admin and wasted time from recruiting and managing temp staff is a big problem for all pubs and restaurants. Having an agency in the middle is not ideal as it causes friction and delays... and obviously there are costs involved. If Staff Heroes can provide temp staff on demand and automate the supply and management end to end then they are going to be massively successful”Bruce Newman - SA Brain and Company Ltd
"Many hospitality businesses are still turning to traditional channels such as job boards for temp staffing. This is only one step in the end to end temporary staffing solution and if Staff Heroes can automate from sourcing to payroll this will save everyone a huge amount of time, leaving us to get on with our jobs. A huge improvement for temp staffing!”Alex Davenport Jones - The Porch House
