Swiss Hotel Looking for Junior GM: Adults Need Not Apply

Swiss Hotel Looking for Junior GM: Adults Need Not Apply


A luxury hotel in Switzerland aims to hire a child to act as a consultant on the quality of its offerings to children.

Badrutt’s Palace in St. Moritz, Switzerland, is currently accepting applications for a junior general manager position. But there’s a catch: Applicants must be between 5 and 12 years old, according to Yahoo! Travel. The job entails working with senior management to improve the property’s amenities for children.

“We are known for glitz and glamour. However, we want to show how even our smallest guests can feel on top of the world,” said the hotel’s managing director, Hans Wiedemann.

“Short in size. Big in ideas,” reads the title of the job posting. The junior general manager would begin their “work” in December, offering personal feedback after completing a number of duties, including meeting with staff, inspecting the hotel, sampling menus, testing pillows and conducting “quality control tastings” of the establishment’s famous chocolate towers. One month later, the junior general manager will return to check whether the hotel acted on any given advice. Additionally, the position entails hosting a kids-only pajama party at the hotel’s nightclub.

The compensation package includes coverage of travel expenses for the junior general manager and the child’s family, as well as a non-working vacation during the summer of 2015.

“The hotel is looking for an outgoing child that likes talking to people and speaks English, German, or Italian,” said a statement released by the venue’s U.S. communications team.

Candidates have until November 17 to apply by filling out a questionnaire and creating a short video expressing why they think they’d be ideal for the role.
