Staff Introductions - June 2012 / Javier Serrano - BDE Roomspace Serviced Apartments by Bard Vos

 

 

Hi, my name is Javier Serrano and I am originally from Madrid, Spain. I am graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a BA (Honours) Degree in Hospitality & Business Management, and I have recently finished my MBA at the EOI Business School in Madrid. I have gained experience over the last 2 years in Business Development and I have over 9 years experience within the Hospitality and Tourism Industry.

 

Back in London I have been working over five years in a four star hotel chain where I learnt, evolved and grown as a staff member and as part of the management team of the company. My last positions were as Guest Relations Manager, Assistant Reception Manager and Catering Manager among others. In addition to my University studies I have also completed different training in Hospitality and Business which have enhanced and improved my managerial skills, including; Time Management & Delegation, Coaching, Recruiting & Selection and Appraisal Skills for operatives.

 

I have also worked for an airlines company at the Madrid airport for over three years where I had the chance to improve my business knowledge in different areas having the opportunity, along with another four supervisors that accompanied me along the research and implementation of the different tasks and processes, to create and consolidate a new department with regards to the Cargo business functions of the company I was working for.

 

I just moved back to London again in February 2012, and three months after I joined the Apartment Service. The atmosphere is great and I look forward to the challenges ahead and the experience and knowledge I will gain from all the team at The Apartment Service. 

 

The opportunity to work abroad and to deal with different cultures and work environments are of great interest in my professional and personal development.
