Culture is at the heart of everything we do, and core to our culture are
our six values. Our values are the DNA of who we are at Ennismore;
they guide our work and how we work together.
We’re in it together
We’re a global community. We collaborate and support each other to create the best memories for our guests. Whatever the challenge – we’re in it together.
Think big & believe
We’re dreamers and entrepreneurial – big, bold thinkers constantly imagining what is possible. We push the boundaries, challenge the norm and create change. The biggest risk is not taking any risks.
Come as you are
We’re a place where personality and experience count in equal measures; we want our team to be themselves. We celebrate and welcome diversity in all forms, and we give opportunities learn and develop.
We work hard, make it fun
Working hard is a given but remembering to make it fun is key. We make it fun for our team and our guests; it’s what we do. A good dose of humour goes a long way.
Make a positive impact
We focus on our sustainability impact and support the communities we call home. We do more to make a positive impact – from small things to brighten someone’s day to giving back and supporting causes close to our hearts.
Be humble & kind
We’re grounded and approach things with an open mind and show kindness. A constant flow of new ideas helps us evolve quicker and stay ahead of the game. We take care of people, and we show kindness in our actions.

We’re always on the lookout for exciting new projects. If you are interested in collaborating with us, and want to hear more about our brands, requirements and operating structures, we’d love to hear from you.
