Travelodge Creating Over 400 New Hotel Vacancies Around The UK

Hotel chain Travelodge is preparing for the peak summer season by hiring hundreds of staff across the UK.

With 579 hotels nationwide, including 41 in Scotland, the company is seeking to fill more than 400 positions, including 35 roles in Scottish hotels.

Travelodge, based in Thame, Oxfordshire, has been a prominent budget hotel chain in the UK since opening its first location in 1985. The company currently employs over 12,000 people in the UK, Ireland and Spain.

The 400 available jobs include full-time and part time roles with flexible working hours, making them suitable for parents and students.

Positions range from kitchen staff and bar team members to hotel team members, night reception team members and housekeeping team members.

For anyone with more experience, there are also vacancies for district managers and assistant hotel managers.

Travelodge has indicated that most of the 400+ vacancies need to be filled as soon as possible.

Launching the recruitment drive for hundreds of new staff, director of people operations at Katharine Gourley, Travelodge, said that most of the roles on offer would be a perfect fit for students:

“In addition to a strong network of hotels across the UK, we also offer flexible working hours that can be a win-win solution for parents and students. We offer parents flexible working hours to help them around the school run, so they can raise their family and have a job that allows them to develop a career when the time is right for them.”

“Students can work in a Travelodge whilst studying at university and then transfer to a different hotel when they return home in the holidays. The opportunities at Travelodge are endless and can open a door to a great career in a fast-growing global industry.”

“There has never been a better time than now to join Travelodge, one of the UK’s biggest hotel brands. Our colleagues sit at the heart of our business and we are committed to providing an inclusive workplace. We are looking for enthusiastic people that have a passion and determination to deliver excellent service," added Ms Gourley.
