Esplanade Careers


at the Esplanade Zagreb Hotel

The Esplanade Zagreb hotel has long been synonymous with highly personalized service and the highest professional standards. Since its opening in 1925, the Esplanade has been a trendsetter and innovator in the hotel industry, not only in Zagreb, but in the entire region thanks to its dedication, engagement and the immense love of its employees who have created, for the past 90 years, the Esplanade’s globally recognized position as ‘a hotel with heart and a special energy’.

Each and every colleague is proud to be a part of this building’s impressive history. On a daily basis, we joyfully tailor wonderful moments and events for numerous guests, sure to be remembered long after. We actively participate in the promotion of positive interpersonal relations and true values, as well as contributing to the promotion of the city and helping our community.

It is with pride that we emphasize how some of the Esplanade’s employees have spent their entire working life with us. Their rich and invaluable professional experience and skills, knowledge, and motivation are cheerfully passed down to the younger generation employees daily. Some such employees are Ivan Sneler, Croatia’s charming first sommelier, Ana Grgic, our young Chef de Cuisine who initiated her career when her then superior advised her to undertake an internship in the kitchen; there’s also Ivica Krizmanic, who in his 25-year career at the Esplanade held every position from student job as doorman, to receptionist and to the hotel’s general manager, a position he has now held for three years. There is also the legend of the Banquet Department Josip Friscic, who for over 30 years has trained new generations of waiters, and through his enthusiasm and positive energy won over numerous clients who have hosted their events and weddings at the hotel. There are many similar stories and they all represent the Esplanade’s striving for excellence in service, with everyone contributing in their respective segment.

Every month, many employees begin their professional careers at the Esplanade. Our doors are open for all those who want to embark on that next step, who strive for excellence, those devoted to their work and those who prioritize guests’ satisfaction. We are very happy to welcome devoted individuals who have some level of work experience and higher education, but it is not crucial – what we exceptionally value is: professional dedication, communication skills, creativity, foreign language knowledge, a positive attitude and teamwork, initiative and a proactive approach to work, a desire to learn and master new skills, independence and responsibility for undertaking tasks, an eye for detail and catering to guests, a sense of pride and love for this hotel, creating quality interpersonal relations, and an honest smile.

Our aim is to continue a tradition of exceptional service to all our guests, while maintaining a pleasant and friendly work environment for employees. We succeed in achieving this through an approach which seeks out the best possible newcomers who integrate all necessary skill sets, while we offer them the necessary knowledge and skills through seminars, consultation and training.

Therefore, if you are an individual with a positive outlook, enjoy open and friendly communication, possess an unparalleled sense for recognizing and catering to people’s needs, strive for perfection in every sense, are strongly driven to work and advance – fulfill your potential, become a part of our team and afford yourself a valuable experience.
