Meet the Team - Angelique Didierlaurent
Angelique Didierlaurent is 24, a housekeeper at The Chester Residence, and joined the team in September 2013.
She is originally from Durban in South Africa and moved to Edinburgh 13 years ago to join close family, and loves living in Scotland’s capital city. We asked Angelique why she enjoys the city and working at The Chester Residence so much, and here’s what she said;
‘I love the culture and the vibe of Edinburgh as a city, it’s so exciting and the people are very friendly too. Edinburgh has a real heritage and I particularly enjoy Festival time in the city as there’s so much to see and do. I find the creative and fun acts such as the Circus and Burlesque Cabaret really entertaining, both of which I hope to see next month.’
‘The Chester Residence is a very special place to work. We are a close team and it’s a fun environment. The management are quite relaxed which makes the day more enjoyable – on a normal day I will clean around five or six apartments and we’re able to have the music channel on at the same time, so time flies by.’
'Outside of work I guess I do what every 24 year old enjoys; hanging out with friends and relaxing; shopping and enjoying the city, as well as spending time with my family. Also when time allows I enjoy horse riding. The countryside is so close to the city in Edinburgh and you don’t have to go far to enjoy great scenery which is a real change from the city environment….’
Angelique has certainly been smitten by the hospitality and travel industry bug. She intends to study International Hospitality and Tourism Management at Edinburgh’s Telford College. She hopes this will not only extend her industry knowledge, but hopefully also open up some great opportunities to travel more in the future.
