In the name of prosperity

Are you a natural-born diplomat? Smart, curious and adaptable? Because we want a fine emissary to visit home owners who’ve enquired about joining onefinestay, all across London, and to align the interests of two great principalities: our lovely hosts and our lovely business.

If you’re commercially savvy and insatiably curious, who better to represent as you make a name for yourself on the front line of onefinestay’s growth? Distinctive homes and their inquisitive owners will be your circles of influence, and you’ll call on a wealth of diplomatic channels to mediate prospective hosts’ concerns and questions about joining the unhotel. At the same time, you’ll need to reconcile our commercial success.

As such we’re searching for an expert mediator and relationship-builder – a chameleon who thrives on challenging discussions – which adds up to being a bit of an emotional genius. Above all, you’ll need to be game for the challenge, because the growth of our portfolio of homes will rely on your just judgement.


  • Building a portfolio of beautiful homes by forging the initial relationship with our hosts
  • Being the all-important face of the company, making a great first impression
  • Wooing new hosts and informing them about all things onefinestay, be that our quirks or our contracts
  • Negotiating the pricing of our homes, striking the balance between hosts’ and onefinestay’s wishes and wants
  • Communicating effectively and efficiently how the business works
  • Understanding what new hosts’ needs are and responding to them empathetically

Personal qualities

  • Strong communication and people skills – warm, supportive and genuinely interested in the feelings of others
  • Observant, resourceful, a quick thinker and problem-solver to boot
  • Commercially aware – you can make commercial judgements and understand the impacts on the business
  • Outgoing personality – you’re charming, fun, witty and you’d have a cup of tea and a chat with anyone
  • Light on your feet, responsive and adaptable. Because you never know what's on the other side of the door
  • People trust you and you make them feel confident in onefinestay
  • Ability to work with different types of people
  • A true entrepreneurial self-starter willing to work early, late and play frequently
  • Diplomatic humour essential
  • A good degree and/or previous commercial experience
  • Confident relationship-builder
  • Robust communication skills
  • Ability to thrive in an unstructured environment
