TELL ME MORE
As a Sidekick Intern, you’ll be the go-to person, connector and problem solver for our residents. Although no day looks quite the same in this role, you can find yourself doing anything from welcoming visitors, to helping residents check in and out, and even showing off your barista skills at our Kindred Spirits rooftop bar.
The job of a Sidekick Intern is highly versatile, flexible and focused completely on making people feel at ease during their entire time with us. You will need to love sharing advice, looking after people and building a nest for our residents – while always striving to provide service in better and more creative ways.
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
No day looks the same as a Sidekick Intern… but here’s a glimpse of what you can expect:
A friendly first impression: Be the first point of contact for anyone walking through our doors. This means providing a friendly hello, a warm smile, a small chat and making people feel happy and comfortable throughout their entire time with us.
Helping people feel at home right away: You’ll be the first person a resident meets when they check-in, and the last person they see when they check-out. You’ll be there to help support their arrival, check-in and check-out process and to help answer any questions that come up.
Master of the bar & kitchens right hand: You’ll be both a barista and master server in our Kindred Spirits bar & Living Kitchen restaurant. Help prepare/serve drinks and food while acting as a social connector for residents, guests and members – you’ll meet interesting people too!
Creating memorable meetings: Local people meet for the day at Zoku too. Embrace your inner event planner by setting up our meeting rooms, styling the meeting and event spaces, and providing great service throughout a company’s meeting with us.
