Profile : Medhi Luini, bursar at the West End Hotel



Every month, the West End Hotel**** is delighted to spotlight its employees through a series of questions, in order to find out more about their jobs and what drives them in the course of their duties. Today, the hotel spotlights Medhi Luini, the hotel’s bursar.

Could you introduce yourself?
After completing a work-study program in Business Management, I was offered the position of Bursar at 3A Hôtels La Collection in June 2022. The bursar’s role involves overseeing supplies and monitoring inventory at the group’s three establishments: the Aston La Scala, the West End and the Beau Rivage. I’m also responsible for identifying the needs of each department before placing the necessary orders. My main task is to keep stocks at an optimum level, making sure we’re never out of stock.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
What I particularly like about my job is that, although every day is different, it’s crucial to be well organized, since you’re working independently. In fact, organization is the key to getting the job done right. The advantage of working alone is that you can progress at your own pace, and here I work in good conditions and in a magnificent setting.

What advice would you give to an employee just starting out?
It’s a job that involves a lot of responsibility, so if I had to give one piece of advice to a beginner, it would be not to put too much pressure on yourself, even though, as a bursar, you’re in charge of the hotel’s wallet.

What’s your favorite part of the West End Hotel?
One of my favorite places at the West End is the mezzanine of Le Siècle restaurant, because it’s such a magnificent setting! We meet there every week with the teams. It’s a friendly place where staff can get together to keep the hotel running smoothly.

What are your best memories?
Every year, the team organizes an end-of-season cocktail party. It’s a great opportunity to get together as a team, and it’s always a good time that leads to great projects.

Finally, what advice would you give customers to make the most of their stay?
Don’t hesitate to talk to the staff at the West End Hotel, who are always ready to offer their best advice.
