DUAL SITE PROPERTY ACCOUNTANT

WHO ARE WE

Generator is on a journey. Appropriate, given that we're an accommodation brand. The journey began in London, swung through a heap of European capitals on its way to dominating the world. No biggie. Fast Company named us one of the top 50 most innovative global companies. We, of course, agree. And now this top 50 most innovative global company (did we mention that?) wants a pretty awesome Hotel Manager for Generator Berlin Prenzlauer Berg.

Our spaces are safe and seriously social, in the proudest part of the beating heart of the cities we love. Cultural action, creative pulse and an outstanding way to waste some of the finite time the universe has given you - that's what Generator offers. Holds true for staff and visitors equally, and while chic design is always the backdrop, every Generator in every destination reflects the unique beat of that city's heart.

BEING YOURSELF is the key to bringing the Generator story and brand to life.
 

ABOUT GENERATOR BERLIN PRENZLAUER BERG

Located in East Berlin’s most laid-back neighbourhood, Generator Prenzlauer Berg offers a clean and safe space situated moments away from the Landsberger Allee S-Bahn and Tram station.

This Generator is rich in history as it sits in a former Communist office block - now home to a chilled beer garden, open public spaces and large entertainment areas, it is ideal for groups and school travellers. Check out the nearby Olympic swimming pool and Velodrom concert hall. Then take a quick tram ride to some of the city’s big hitters, like Alexanderplatz, the TV Tower and the Stasi Museum. Generator Prenzlauer Berg is the perfect launchpad for exploring the city.
