WHAT THE SIDEKICK?

Zoku needs Sidekicks that easily connect to people, provide a warm welcome and help residents from A to B instead of being a traditional formal waiter. As a Sidekick, you will be our residents’ go-to person, connector and problem solver. You will need to love sharing advice, looking after people and building a nest for our residents and always striving to provide service in better and more creative ways. The job of a Sidekick is highly versatile, flexible and focused completely around Zoku’s residents and making them feel at ease while connecting them to others. One day you might be welcoming residents helping them to check in and out, the next day you might rock the bar, showing off your barista skills, while helping out serving people in the Living Kitchen the day after that. The Sidekick position reports to the Duty Manager on shift.

We will be opening our second location in Copenhagen, Denmark in December 2020. Located just five minutes from the city center by metro, Zoku Copenhagen will be situated on the vibrant Amager island, with easy access to many points of interest. It will accommodate 160 Zoku Lofts – our biggest Zoku yet!

WHAT WILL YOU DO?

Whatever position you are filling for the day, all Sidekicks are responsible for being the first point of contact to anyone walking through Zoku’s doors. You are the glue that holds this place together and responsible for the social atmosphere within Zoku. Above all else, our main mission is to make people happy as we are in the business of taking care of people.

Below you will find a glimpse of what the main responsibilities are per position:

 

ROOMS

As the first person to run into, you’re taking care of residents, checking them in/out and answering any of their questions.

BAR

At the bar, you’re both a barista as well as a beer master, preparing all drinks and serving people while acting as a social connector among residents, guests and members.

LIVING KITCHEN

As the chef’s right hand, you’re helping him/her with running breakfast/lunch or dinner smoothly while welcoming, assisting and socializing with anyone grabbing a bite.

MEETING & EVENTS

You help welcoming all guests coming in for their meeting and help create a special experience for them, setting up the space as well as providing them with service during the day.
