Our natural habitat.

This is a full-time role where you will be working 37.5 hours per week, 5 days out of 7. 

We believe in working flexibly – this includes flexibility in work location, working days (including weekends and bank holidays in operations) and working hours. This may be ad hoc or permanent flexibility.  Ask your recruiting manager or see our careers page for more information. 

Not many Londoners live in the Square Mile, but for the duration of your stay, you can do just that. Mansion House station is minutes away and if you’re working in The City, the Bank of England and offices such as Deloitte and Accenture are on the doorstep.

You’ll also have a whole host of restaurants and bars to choose from, and across the river, the South Bank and Borough Market to explore too. The Shard is nearby for sky-high dining, as is the Barbican for a spot of culture at the weekend. 

About edyn.

Here at edyn, we believe travel should be a rich journey of discovery. Our brands – Cove, Locke and SACO – offer soulful hospitality firmly rooted in their local neighbourhoods. Together, we’re creating sanctuaries for free-thinking urbanites across Europe.

About Cove.

Unlike other hotels, we’re not into labels. We’re into living. Cove offers guests a space like no other – carefully designed, uncluttered apartments that allow each person to make the most of every moment, and every mode. These day’s it’s not about clocking in then logging off, presenting then partying, or even weekdays and weekends. It’s about undivided, seamless living. Flowing from one mode to the next without interrupting. Working comfortably. Living efficiently. Blurring borders and being together, but with enough space for our guests. Work/life balance has changed, and we’re here for the future.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement 

edyn’s Purpose is to build brands designed around Soulful Hospitality -we create sanctuaries where free thinkers can nourish and enliven their souls. This is only possible if the growth of our company is centred around a deep respect for humanity. Everyone at edyn should feel free and safe to express their ideas, state their opinions and share their lived experiences in an environment of openness, tolerance, and curiosity. 

This principle sits at the heart of our approach to improving diversity and inclusion. We have established goals and supporting commitments which will help us ensure that everyone in edyn feels a sense of belonging, regardless of their background or identity. 

We are on a DEI journey that we have yet to complete, and we acknowledge our failures or weaknesses as we discover them. Our principle & goals are clear, and we travel together to seek to drive change, evolve ourselves and the edyn community.
