Eamonn Cole

It is a huge privilege for me to be able to work at Friends House as it is a ‘values-driven’ organisation that genuinely puts people and the planet first. I have worked my entire career in hospitality and I am so delighted to now be able to support the incredible work undertaken by Quakers around the globe. London is an amazing city where I have the opportunity to attend so many wonderful attractions and events, especially the theatre, music concerts, and sporting events.

Cecilia Bouenissa

I started working at Friends House in 2015. We've reached great milestones together and faced challenges as a united team. I've learned a lot working with great colleagues, managers, clients and suppliers. It's also nice to work for a company with such strong values and ethos. My background is in marketing and I've worked for an insurance company and tech start-ups in Paris (where I'm from) and London. Outside of work, I like to spend time with my children, cooking and baking together, or going on little adventures to the many parks and city farms of London.

Friends House offers a great opportunity to work in an environment with highly respectful core values. My background has always been in Facilities Management and in my spare time I enjoy country walks and attending West End theatre.

Tony Richards

Tony has over 30 years of experience looking after buildings, from schools and government buildings to venues. He previously worked for engineering consultancies and local authorities in London and the home counties. Tony likes finding solutions where technology helps him deliver great building maintenance.

Working at Friends House has been a beautiful journey for me, where I have met and continue to meet lovely people. The team supports each other and possesses the level of inclusion that you can only find in a few places. Their values and commitments are something we should all be striving for and having the opportunity to be a part of it all and feel like a member of one big family is just amazing. I have been working in the hospitality industry for quite some time now and the biggest thing I’m passionate about, and the reason why I am in this business, is exceeding customers’ expectations, going that extra mile, and building and developing staff bringing a feeling of pride in what they do.

Timo Eftimov

I really enjoy working in Friends House because of the great colleagues and teamwork. I have been in the hospitality industry for just over seven years working different customer facing roles in different multinational and independent hotels in London. On my time off I really enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and visiting new places.

Katie Stroud

Working for Friends House is such a privilege and I am delighted to work for an organisation that puts their core values first, especially their sustainability commitments, ahead of profit. I bring 12 years of experience in the hospitality industry to the role, having worked in venues such as the Museum of London, Tower Bridge and Prince Philip House. I love food and wine and if I’m not trying a new restaurant then you can find me cooking or devouring a new recipe book.
