Reception – Assistant Receptionist, Assistant Reservations’ Receptionist:
These are the most demanded positions in a hotel. They are also the positions which require a higher level of Spanish due to the constant contact with clients as well as coordinating with the rest of the hotel staff and to maintain the influx of Spanish clients. If your level of Spanish is not good enough, we could offer you other posts for a sufficient period in order to improve your level of the spoken language.
Spain has an official acknowledgment of quality service from the government for the tourism companies called Q of Quality. It is quite a hard job to maintain this title year after year so hotels have created this department which in contact with clients, staff and departments tries to keep the best standards of quality by checking services and procedures.
Public Relations, Assistant Manager, events, sales:
These positions require special preparation and some experience. They would be suitable for persons with a high level of Spanish who have a Post Graduate degree in tourism in either Public Relations or Management. The level of Spanish is important.
The fundamental basis of being an animator is your ability to get on with people, to empathize with them and to be an extrovert, entertaining and fun-loving person. Do not worry about the language. It is more important to have a basic command of several languages than a good command of just one.
