Company Details

Britannia Hotels are a chain of privately owned hotels in the United Kingdom. With almost 50 hotels to their name (there are currently 47), this makes Britannia Hotels the largest privately owned hotel chain in the United Kingdom. Unlike some hotel chains that are easily recognisable by their layout and style, Britannia Hotels purchase existing buildings, in particular hotels, and refurbish them. In the cases of older buildings, the company tries to refurbish them sympathetically, preferring to keep original features where possible. Britannia Hotels offer rooms at the budget end of the market.

Because they are a privately owned company, Britannia Hotels say this gives them a more personal touch with staff development and they are keen to help you develop your skills. This could be good news for students and young people, whether you are looking for part time student jobs or whether you are thinking about building a full time career in hotel jobs.

The types of hotel jobs that could be available with Britannian Hotels are both front of house and also in admin and other office roles. Entry level jobs in hotels that might suit school leavers and students could be in food and beverage, housekeeping or reception work, for example. For those looking to build a career in the hotel industry either in the kitchen or in head office roles, there could be many opportunities with Britannia Hotels. Marketing, accounts and HR are among just some of the careers that might suit graduates or those with previous experience.

Britannia Hotels like to promote a fun loving atmosphere and, especially for front of house hotel jobs such as bar jobs and waiting on tables where you are dealing with hotel guests, you will need to be confident and happy when dealing with the public. Staff development programmes and regular appraisals mean there could be opportunities for promotion for those who want Britannia Hotels careers because the hotel chain is continuing to expand. If you are willing to learn, committed to quality, you want to succeed and you are able to keep a smile on your face while you are working hard and dealing with guests, then Britannia Hotels would like to hear from you.

Britannia Hotels are not just based in the cities of England and Scotland. They also purchase properties in smaller towns, seaside resorts and in the countryside so even if you aren’t based in a city, there could still be a Britannia Hotel close to you. Students and young people based in the northwest of England will find a clutch of Britannia Hotels (the head office is in Cheshire) but there are a good number all around England and a handful in Scotland, too.

For school leavers, students and graduates who are looking for hotel jobs with Britannia Hotels, the company recruits new staff as vacancies arise.
