We are looking for motivated employees with a passion for hospitality and an eye for detail. A completed training in the hotel industry or corresponding professional experience is an advantage, but not mandatory. We place great value on the ability to work in a team, communication skills and flexibility.

We offer a variety of work areas including reception, room cleaning, restaurant and bar service, kitchen, event planning and organization, marketing and sales, and administration and accounting. Depending on the skills and interests of the applicant, we find the right position.

Working hours at Hotel Nige Hus are based on the needs of our guests and may vary depending on the position. We offer both full-time and part-time positions and strive to create a flexible work schedule that allows our employees a good work-life balance.

We encourage the personal and professional development of our employees and offer regular training and development opportunities. Our employees have the opportunity to gain experience and take advantage of career opportunities in various departments.

Applications can be submitted via our careers page on our website or by email. We request a cover letter, resume and relevant references or certificates. We strive to respond to each application in a timely manner.

We are always pleased to receive unsolicited applications from committed and motivated applicants. It’s never predictable what skills a person will bring until you get to know them. We value employees who are open, committed, team players and flexible.

We will process your application as soon as possible. In the high season, however, it can take up to a week until you receive a response from us – depending on how busy we are at the moment. If you have not received a response after this time, please feel free to contact us and ask about the status of your application.

Nige Hus is located on the island of Neuwerk, which can only be reached by ferry, waders or on foot. Life on the island is characterized by nature, the sea and tranquility. There are no cars on the island and life is much slower than in the city. For some employees, this can be an adjustment, but for many it is also an opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and work in a unique environment. We help our employees settle in on the island and also provide accommodation and meals.

Yes, we offer internships in the hotel industry. Whether you want to get a first insight into the industry or complete your school internship, we look forward to receiving your application! During your internship you will get insights into different departments of the hotel and gain valuable experience. We always strive to encourage and support our interns in the best possible way.
