careers at thestudio…

Are you looking for the next step in your hospitality career? We are looking for friendly, enthusiastic team players who are passionate about customer service.

about us…

Born as ‘The Orange Studio’ in 1999 we started with our award-winning Birmingham location and just 5 meeting rooms but it’s safe to say we’ve grown a lot since then. We became thestudio… in 2006 and we are now an independent company, owned and run by the same team since the beginning but now having grown to 46 meeting rooms across 4 locations around the UK.

Though we’ve grown a lot our friendly, people focused ethos and culture very much remains at our heart. It’s important to us that everyone that attends one of locations feels welcome and looked after. We’re not a large corporate chain and we’re really proud of that. We work hard. We be ourselves. We have fun.

We’re passionate about giving our clients the best experience and really care about getting things right. Our aim is to exceed expectations so it goes without saying that we have a friendly, welcoming, client focused team at the forefront of everything we do. Our ‘Customer First’ mission statement is applied to all aspects of our work and is the reason our clients return time and again.

We are also passionate about our local communities, all of our food is locally sourced and we aim to do the best we can in terms of our impact on our environment.

Like we say to our clients, why would you want to work anywhere else?
