Restaurant & Bar Management Trainee in Amsterdam


Making processes within our hotel better, training colleagues and making sure everything in our F&B department runs smoothly. With this you will achieve that all colleagues have the right tools to satisfy guests with our food and beverage services. As a Restaurant & Bar intern in our large hotel, you will be co-responsible for the Restaurant, Lobby & Lounge Bar and In-room Dining under the guidance of the Restaurant & Bar (Assistant) Manager. At Mövenpick we make moments, do you?

Be limitless

During the shift, it's you, along with the Supervisor, who makes sure everything runs smoothly. If colleagues cannot solve a complaint or question, you and the Supervisors jump in to help. You make sure the right orders are placed and you supervise and train the employees when necessary. You make sure - together with the whole team - that everything goes according to the plan and that you hand over the shift carefully to the colleagues who take over. At the end of the shift, you are the one who does the handover to the next shift, therefore the team is always kept up to date with everything that is happening in the hotel. During your internship you will also perform the necessary administrative tasks. For example processing and checking outsourced working requests, do suggestions regarding the menu cards, making internal orders, etc. You will do this together with the Supervisors and (Assistant) Restaurant & Bar Manager. No limits to your skills. Besides this you are:

  • an MBO or HBO student who is looking for an informative internship for at least 20 weeks, 5 days a week;
  • giving correct information about the drinks and dishes and serving them in the right way;
  • involved in complicated questions, complaints or feedback from our guests;
  • responsible for operationally supporting the F&B teams and, if necessary, performing Supervisor duties;
  • making drinks and taking orders. You are also willing to have a real chat with our guests about their visit to Amsterdam;
  • preparing the Restaurant for evening service or tidying up breakfast;
  • refilling drinks in the Lobby & Lounge Bar so that all drinks are available.

Your working hours depend on where you need to work, bar, restaurant, or room service. For our restaurant and room service, working hours are from 7:00 to 15:00 and from 15:00 to 23:00. You are open to work different shifts. For the bar, working hours are from 9:00 to 15:00, 15:00 to 23:00 and 16:00 to 0:00.

Proud to present

Mövenpick: the place to enjoy life. Inside, we create a space for our guests to enjoy by relaxing at the bar with a delicious cocktail or a creamy cappuccino. In our restaurants, you can discover the most delicious special dishes. We are originally from Switzerland, and we carry this luxurious gastronomic hospitality with us. ‘Enjoying life to the fullest.’ That is our mantra for our guests, but also for you as an employee.

You start every working day together with twenty national and international colleagues in our beautiful 4-star hotel located in Amsterdam. The team consists of young colleagues who are collegial and friendly towards each other. Despite the different nationalities, we can definitely speak of a close group of colleagues. You will work in a hotel that works together with the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam, a total combined conference space of over 1900 m2, including 11 modern and spacious conference and directors’ rooms. Through the emergence of ijVENUES, Amsterdam’s new exhibition centre, everything only becomes bigger and better. On a lovely, sunny day, you can choose between a 10-minute walk or a 5-minute cycle ride from the central station. Or you can hop on the tram from the other side of our hotel. In short: we have it all.

“If our staff is happy, our guests are happy.” – Restaurant & Bar Manager Mövenpick.
