We want people like you

We are committed to exceeding our guests’ expectations and, to do that, we need exceptional people.

Currently we employ approximately 180 people from 41 countries.

We are looking for team members who have a sense of fun and at the same time are polite and professional, have a positive attitude and enjoy every day being just that little bit different from the last one.

If you like people, we’ll train you…

At The Runnymede on Thames we’re a small family with a big personality where people and success matter.  We’re one of three independent, family-owned hotels, and we have our own unique sense of style and personality.

Everyone across the business helped to create our values, and they are at the heart of everything we do.

  1. Warm & Thoughtful

    We take care of each other and offer a genuine welcome to all.  We set people up to succeed and listen to what our teams have to say.  We celebrate success and bring the fun.

  2. Proud & Ethical

    We take care of every detail, we’re honest, kind and fair and we take personal ownership in our business.  We love what we do, we do the right thing, and because of this, we do ourselves proud.

  3. Ambitious & Energetic

    We’re ambitious about what every member of our team can achieve and we develop our people so that they can accomplish it.  We’re goal-focused and we inspire and excite in what we’re doing.

    Why not join our family?

The two rural properties are The Grove, a 5 star resort, in Hertfordshire and the 4 star Runnymede on Thames set on the banks of the River Thames near Windsor in Surrey. The Grove is 20 minutes train journey from central London and The Runnymede on Thames is 7 minutes from Heathrow Airport and a 40 minute train journey from central London.
