Put your barista-, operational- and administrative skills into practice with us in our reception/café/community-hub here in Talent Garden Rainmaking!

Talent Garden is Europe's leading innovation platform and coworking network with +23 campuses across several countries. Besides coworking, we are delivering various training programs for individuals and companies, creating large corporate partnerships to help grow the ecosystem and innovate organizations, as well as organizing various events.

We are now looking for a full-time employee for our café/reception/community-hub at Talent Garden Rainmaking. You will be the friendly face saying good morning + good afternoon to 350 residents spread across young companies and welcoming visiting guests.

This is a many-faceted position, where you make coffee with one hand, run the reception with the other, and juggle multiple tasks, responsibilities, and requests within the same minute. You know that buzz-sentence: ‘you must be able to multitask’? -Well … in our house this is no joke; you will quickly learn; this sentence is probably created with this position in mind.

We want to deliver the best hosting experience, and the people we strive to hire are first and foremost interested in other people. You are the first person people see when they arrive and the hand they shake when they leave. You will be talking to residents and guests in our café/reception constantly. In other words: You probably fall into the smiling category and you can make everyone feel welcome in a split second. Also on the busy days, which is most of the time.

You will be part of a team committed to delivering a high service level across everything we do. We expect a lot from ourselves and from each other. We have an informal culture, have a lot of fun, and we take care of each other. And - we believe that if something is not fun, we can do it better.

We are a small team and we help each other out when needed across job titles and main responsibilities. Everyone on the team has emptied the dishwashers in the morning, taken out the trash, lent a helping hand at lunch, or carried a bunch of tables when needed, and we expect that you will be open to help out in that same way.

The Primary Working Areas

  • Open the coworking kitchenettes in the mornings: empty dishwashers, fill up coffee, etc.
  • Run the daily reception tasks: Guests arrive at the house: you get a hold of the resident they are visiting. New people moving in? -You send them the onboarding email to make sure they have all the info they need before moving in. You will create their access cards, prepare a few administrative backend things for them, etc.
  • Wifi down? You'll be tracking down the supplier until wifi is running smoothly again. Need an electrician for some fixes? You'll make it happen.
  • Be the primary point of contact for needed cleaning adjustments around the house
  • Handle the internal house slack for operational messages
