A recruitment drive to find 140 hotel staff has been instigated by Travelodge following its recent acquisition of 52 Innkeeper’s Lodges.
The budget chain is looking for 40 hotel managers and 100 entry level staff such as receptionists, room cleaners and night porters.
Successful candidates will undertake a comprehensive four-week training programme. They will also take ‘Sleep Tight’ customer training on “sleep matters”, new noise abatement policies and re-organised delivery times at hotels to ensure minimum sleep interruption for guests.
Regional operations director Debbie Husband said: “We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated and committed individuals to join our team. Our latest acquisition of 52 hotels offers a fantastic opportunity for individuals who are looking for a career in hospitality.”
The company recruits its entry-level staff for new hotels in partnership with the Job Centre Plus scheme that focuses on getting the local long-term unemployed back in to work.
