Hilton To Create 280 Hotel Jobs In Sunderland

Hilton, the worldwide chain of hotels, started work on a new project last week which will see the company create around 280 hotel and construction jobs in Sunderland over the coming months.

Around 180 of the Sunderland jobs will be temporary jobs created in the construction phase of the project which is expected to last until 2016. Once open, the new Hilton Hotel, next to the city’s Stadium of Light, will support around 100 full and part time hotel jobs for Sunderland.

The new Hilton hotel in Sunderland will have over 140 rooms, along with bar, restaurant and meeting room facilities.

John Wood, chairman of the hotel developer firm Tolent Construction, stressed the regional benefits of the new Hilton, saying: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work on this very prestigious development, which will add to the ever increasing profile of Sunderland and the region. Our own locally-based workforce will be employed on the project and wherever possible we will resource local suppliers and subcontractors to ensure that we reinvest in the local economy.”

The deputy leader of Sunderland City Council, Councillor Harry Trueman, also threw his weight behind the Hilton development saying that it was ‘fantastic’ for Sunderland.

“The city welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, to a wide range of major events, and new high-quality hotel provision like this will hopefully encourage more of those visitors to stay in Sunderland, providing an additional boost to the local economy,” added Mr Trueman.
