Night Porter


The Nare is the 5 star country house hotel by the sea and Cornwall's highest rated luxury hotel. Renowned for its traditional, unobtrusive service and spectacular sea views over Carne Beach, the hotel offers standards of comfort and service that are increasingly difficult to find.

The Nare is set in some 8 acres and features 41 spacious rooms and suites, a traditional dining room, the fine dining Quarterdeck restaurant, and a comprehensive range of leisure facilities including tennis court, croquet lawn, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a health spa, and a classic 38’ motor launch, Alice Rose.

The addition of The Nare's new Whittington Suites - four exceedingly comfortable and spacious sea view suites at the western end of the hotel - means there are more opportunities to join The Nare's family of staff.


We are looking for a hardworking and responsible individual to join the night porter team. This job will be based on a 4 night per week (approximately 9 hour shift) and include the opportunity for overtime. We also receive exceptional gratuities for those eligible for our TRONC system.

You will be responsible for ensuring the hotel and guest safety during the night, and handover any issues to the morning management team


This is a very high-quality operation and accordingly, candidates must have a significant aspiration to working in quality hotels. Whilst at one level this is a traditional business, it is also progressive, and candidates should be able to demonstrate a much more contemporary outlook on life and an ability to adapt to a fast-moving, busy operation. Due to our location and nature of the position a driving license will be essential. Full training will be provided regarding duties. You will need to be confident, calm under pressure (in the event of a fire) and somewhat self-motivated.


Type: Full time, permanent

Salary: £9.25 - £10.50 per hour

Schedule: Night Shifts (four on four off)

Licence: Driving (preferred)

Work remotely: No


We pride ourselves on our team loyalty and longevity. Our current benefits package is progressive and detailed below:

  • Staff meals whilst on duty
  • Uniform provided
  • 50% discount for staff and their family/friends in both restaurants
  • 50% discount in Carne Bay Spa
  • Discounted wines
  • Enhanced pension contributions
  • Discounted rates of 50% in some of the worlds most exclusive hotels and venues
