The power of passion

At the heart of The Red Carnation Collection is our people and their passion and commitment to creating memorable guest experiences. Our story began 35 years ago… Driven by our Founder and President Beatrice Tollman's lifelong affair with the world of hospitality, and celebrating her husband's signature flower, The Red Carnation Hotel Collection came to life.

We value personalities and a positive 'can-do attitude over anything else, and full personal training is provided each step of the way to help you achieve your career goals. We pride ourselves on the fact that staff and guests alike are welcomed and treated like part of the Red Carnation family; with encouragement and support from colleagues and Management to help guide you to success. 

As part of our recruitment process, we will contact you personally via email and phone advising the next steps of the application process. If you receive any suspicious-looking email correspondence offering a position or requesting money, please do not respond, instead please contact us directly.
