Here you’re not just a number; you’re a person who’s welcomed and valued. Dorchester Collection is the best company I’ve ever worked for, and you get to meet some truly amazing people who are always willing to guide you and help you grow to reach your full potential. I look forward to coming to work every day and the new opportunities it will bring.

As I work with systems, my role is very technical which can be a little difficult to understand. I’m always very patient with others and do my best to be approachable so others can come to me for help when needed. In my team we really support each other, whether we’re working independently or closely on a shared project.

Be curious and ask questions; new ideas are always welcome. You’ll be joining somewhere very special, so embrace the journey and enjoy it! I still remember my first day and felt like I was living a dream – and I still do.

I started my Dorchester Collection journey just over 10 years ago now, and it’s been amazing to see how much the company has developed since those early days. I feel very loyal to this company and most of this is down to our amazing colleagues both here in the UK and globally. I had such a warm welcome from the start and this atmosphere has never really changed. I’m especially proud to have been part of the new branding project. It’s been such a learning experience for us all but the results achieved are truly creative and makes us stand out, not only in the hospitality world but in other sectors too.

Open-mindedness, collaboration, creativity

I believe the key to this is collaboration, patience and understanding that we all have different skills to bring to the table

Show initiative, approach everything with a can-do attitude and never be afraid to ask questions in order to learn!
