There are also roles that do not require fluency in the English language as there is not much interaction with the guests such as kitchen hands, chambermaids, and gardeners, and maintenance staff.
As well as the people providing the aforementioned services, there are also a multitude of skilled jobs which run the hotel. For example accounting and finance, human resources and marketing. For these roles tertiary education is required.
