We are looking for an experienced Shift Engineer to reinforce our Maintenance Team. In this role, you are responsible for several operational checks. These checks are linked to planned activities like; air-conditioning maintenance, Legionella checks, gardening, Fire-prevention systems, etc. As Hilton Amsterdam is operational 24/7, you are managing ad hoc technical situations in the building. You know exactly what to do in case of a sudden leakage in one of the hotel rooms or how to fix lightning in one of our public areas. Next to the daily operations, you are in close contact with contractors for specific maintenance on for example elevators or constructing activities. As Hilton Amsterdam operates 21 meetings spaces, your IT-skills come into practice quite regularly; you are happy to assist guests with the installations of audiovisual equipment.
