Choose you own career path

If you want something, work hard for it, go after it.
I can't worry about all the 'no's, because I believe there's a yes,
and I've been very fortunate to find those in my career
and made the most of those opportunities.

- Mara Brock Akil

All of us who work at Kämp Collection Hotels are united by a love for the hotel and restaurant industry. Our guests' laughter and smiles get us excited as we get to be a part of their day and help make it a successful one. We get to be a part of different stages of our guests' life, from baptisms to birthdays, graduations to engagements and weddings. We witness reunions, major sport events, amazing concerts and visits by dignitaries.

All our teams work with one important goal in mind: whoever enters through the doors of our hotel is warmly welcome. Customer service is in our genes, and for many of us our journey has begun from applying for a job as a receptionist to one of our hotels. In the family of Kämp Collection Hotels, which consists of ten hotels, restaurants, bars, spas and our bakery-café, it is easy to increase your experience and expertise.

Not only do we work closely together across all of our hotel units, we also get to move on to more challenging roles. Check out the stories of our employees below: where did their path begin and where are they now!

Hanna Tynninen – From Intern to Duty Manager

"I was finishing my studies and I started my last internship at Hotel Lilla Roberts in 2017. After my internship, I started working as a receptionist at Lilla Roberts. It was great to get to work as part of a renowned hotel chain and a hotel with an amazing brand. Lilla Roberts is part of the Kämp Collection Hotels family and this made it possible to work at other Kämp Collection Hotels when the opportunity arose. The job offers a variety of opportunities and I was able to develop as an employee. After a few years, a position opened up for me as a Duty Manager. The best things at work are the co-workers and a good team spirit."

Ville Haapala – From Receptionist to HR Coordinator

"After finishing my studies in Tallinn in 2018, I had my future open ahead of me and a possible move back to the Helsinki metropolitan area. I was aware of the high-quality reputation of Kämp Collection Hotels, I knew they run Finland's first-class hotels, and the idea of working with international people quickly led me to send the first job application to be a receptionist to GLO Hotel Art's reception. The openness of the work environment and the opportunities for self-development internally have led my career path from a receptionist to a an HR Coordinator in a few years.”

John Wasserfall – From Cruises to Night Manager

"After 6 years of travelling around the world while working on board a luxury cruise ship, I ended up moving here. After a slight weather and language reality check, I have learnt to appreciate the beautiful city of Helsinki. Interestingly, one of my first experiences was having lunch at Kämp Brasserie and since then, a career with this prestige product became my aim. I succeeded in getting the job as Night Clerk/Receptionist at Hotel Haven in 2019. Three years in and a promotion later, I am still happy and very privileged to be working for the best company in Helsinki."

Maija Lindberg – From Intern to Head of Reservations

"I fell in love with the unique and enchanting atmosphere of GLO Hotel Art and decided to apply for my first internship in my hospitality management studies there in the autumn of 2007. Like many other interns, after my internship I continued as a part-time receptionist and after graduating I started as a full-time sales executive. I found the company's vision, mission and values to be my own and the atmosphere encouraging, and since the autumn of 2014 I have managed the sales service of Kämp Collection Hotels."

Johanna Kari – From Head Waitress to Assistant Restaurant Manager

“I have had the pleasure of working in the restaurant industry for 15 years now! Five years ago, I applied to join Brasserie Kämp as a Head Waitress. Over the years, the responsibility has grown and I have learned a lot about wines, which are my own passion and it has been great to be able to show my skills in that area as well. Today, I work at the restaurant as an Assistant Restaurant Manager and I am responsible for some of Helsinki's finest experiences and the people behind them. In addition to professional development and growth, the best thing during the years I've spent in Kämp are the amazing people and different personalities I have been able to work with. A genuine and heartfelt mindset has made the work meaningful. ”

Mika Makkonen – From Piccolo to General Manager

"I think it was the year 2000 when got a job in a hotel as a piccolo which meant taking things requested by guests to their rooms, carry suitcases and park cars. The staff was filled with amazing people and the job felt nice and versatile enough, which is why I decided to stay in the hospitality industry and move to London to gain more work experience. In 2012 after a few twist and turns I found myself as the Hotel Manager at Hotel Kämp, managing the team of receptionist ja developing of the hotel's operations. Six years ago, I had the opportunity to apply for a General Manager at Hotel Haven, and encouraged by the work community, I ended up applying for the job. And here we are now! The years have included amazing success and a lot of learning, in the hospitality industry you find something new everyday either in the job or in yourself. The best thing about my job is definitely the people oriented approach and the feeling when my team excels. I am grateful for that every day."
