  • Description

    Description

    I have over 10 years of experience in the banking industry. I was working in the areas of investment/credit analysis and evaluations, marketing in both investment and retail banking. I currently run a hostel with my fiancé aka the bladress who has a record in crossing the US continent in roller blades to raise funds for education for women in Kenya.

    Seconds is located in Colombo 05, the property is within 8 km of all major city locations. The accommodation provides a 24-hour front desk, a shared kitchen and currency exchange for guests.

    All rooms have air conditioning, and some units at the hostel have a balcony. All rooms will provide guests with a fridge. Bandaranaike International Airport is 36 km from the property.

    Currently our hostel is operational but having a garden renovation with a pool, café, and an entertainment centre (gaming, movies, karaoke, music etc etc…)

    The hostel is a best reviewed accommodation in Colombo.

    - organising events and bring in the crowd for parties, yoga events, game events, etc etc…
    - social media promotions and developing related facilities
    - IT related persons who can do programming and software
    - café operators and chefs who can run a small café
    - Gardners
    - Artists - music, paintings etc etc
    - wood work and development skills
    - Need a receptionist, with a pleasant attitude who is good in handling guests. The ideal person should be able to communicate in English manage the guests arrivals and checkouts.
