Travelodge To Add 150 Jobs Before Christmas

It has been announced that up to 150 new full or part time jobs will be created by hotel chain Travelodge before Christmas 2013.

The new jobs from the budget hotel chain aren’t temporary Christmas jobs - unlike some of the other seasonal holiday jobs we’ve announced recently (eg the 15,000 Amazon Christmas jobs and the 2,000 Christmas vacancies at John Lewis) - they are longer term jobs which are being created naturally with the opening of new Travelodge hotels in various locations.

Before Christmas, the Travelodge brand is set to open new hotels in London, Chertsey, Crawley, Manchester, Southport and Walthamstow. A range of position will be available including receptions, cleaners, housekeepers, bar staff and cafe waiters.

Over 100 positions will be on offer at the new locations - and a number of management roles will also be advertised at existing Travelodge hotels in Bath and Bristol. There will also be new vacancies in a number of departments at Travelodge HQ in Thame, Oxfordshire.

Travelodge’s operating director, Jon Hendry Pickup, said that training and education opportunities would be made available for new staff and that his hotel chain were focused on developing staff from the moment they enter the company.

“For anyone who is committed to delivering a first class customer experience, we could well have the perfect career through one of these 150 jobs. Our bespoke in-house management programme offers a direct route into management, and to date nearly 500 Travelodge employees have graduated into a management position this way. With Travelodge you don't just get a job, but a long-term career within a growing company that’s part of a dynamic industry,” said Mr Pickup.

If you have no idea what working at Travelodge might be like then have a quick read of our company page about Travelodge jobs before applying for any of their full or part time jobs.

And, if the hotel business wouldn’t get you out of bed in the morning then take a look at some of our other student job options for holidays, evenings and weekends on out page of Part Time Student Jobs.
