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.
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. Were you looking for kitchen porter jobs?
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.
