Inspirational Stories

Discover what our Team Members have to say about working at Rocco Forte Hotels for an insight into how your future with us could look.

Emma Lonie, Restaurant Manager, The Balmoral

“Working at Rocco Forte Hotels feels like being part of a family, and their multidisciplinary approach provides many opportunities.

I’ve been Chef de Rang, Supervisor, Sommelier, Assistant Manager and now I manage the Michelin-starred Number One restaurant at The Balmoral, where our team works with the very best local produce. Our shared love of hospitality creates lasting bonds between us: on Number One’s 20th anniversary, we reunited our previous Head Chefs to cook for our team and regular guests, which was magical. With Mark Donald as our new Head Chef, I’m very excited for the future.”

Alex Wilson, Front Office Manger, Brown’s Hotel

“Rocco Forte Hotels is different to other companies I’ve worked with—they’re incredibly supportive and really nurture development.

Over my four years at London’s oldest hotel, my career has flourished and I’ve had the chance to travel and work at many locations across the group, too. Today, I’m Front Office Manager at Brown’s, and proud to lead such a great department. Every day, I get the chance to make a difference to our guests by creating distinctive, individual experiences; it’s challenging, rewarding and varied.

Managing Director Stuart Johnson has encouraged me every step of the way, to pursue my passion for hospitality both inside and outside Brown’s. He’s supported me in becoming an advisor to the government for Business Management and Hospitality, a Fellow of the Institute of Hospitality and to get an Acorn Award - I’m very grateful for the support Rocco Forte have given me.”

Carolin Vega, Guest Relations Manager, Villa Kennedy

“Since joining in 2006 as a Receptionist at Villa Kennedy, I’ve felt like part of a family.

I realised working here was different when Sir Rocco noticed I was new and introduced himself. Individuality is something Rocco Forte Hotels really values: everyone is treated as an individual, even by the owner.

I became Head Receptionist after 18 months, gained a Hospitality Management Degree and then experienced different roles, including Assistant Front Office Manager at Hotel Astoria, St. Petersburg. I was promoted to Front Office Manager at Villa Kennedy, where today, I’m Guest Relations Manager. We’re passionate about creating memorable experiences for guests, and given the flexibility to bring in fresh ideas.”

Ruggero Silipo, Assistant Front Office Manager, Hotel De La Ville

“My role here lets me do what I love: work with people!

I started as Assistant Guest Relations Manager at Verdura Resort in 2010; my first check-in was memorable, as my paperwork flew away during a VIP helicopter landing. The Forte family take an active interest in our career progression. When I needed to move to Rome, I was offered the chance to join Hotel de Russie as a Front Desk Agent. I once checked in Steven Tyler, who performed for me and my colleagues—unforgettable. Today, I’m proud to represent the Hotel de la Ville opening team as Assistant Front Office Manager. Every day is different and every day gives me the opportunity to make people smile.”
