Travelodge to open hotel in Dagenham creating 20 new jobs!
Travelodge, the UK’s first budget hotel chain which currently operates 568 hotels across the UK, Ireland and Spain is opening its 16th hotel in Essex and its 569th hotel in the UK in the lead up to Christmas.
London Dagenham East Travelodge, a 78-room hotel represents an investment of £5 million for the landlord. It is located at Rainbow Road and will offer rooms from £29.
This hotel opening will create 20 new jobs within the local community and Travelodge is looking to help unemployed parents return to work by offering jobs at its new hotel as part of its parent’s jobs pledge.
The hotel chain is looking to fill 1,500 jobs across the UK which includes 70 jobs in Essex (including the 20 new roles in London Dagenham East Travelodge) with flexible hours that fit around the school run, a supporting work buddy and access to management training.
Positions include: Hotel Manager, Assistant Hotel Manager, Receptionist, Supervisor, and Housekeeping Team Member, as well as support roles at head office.
All jobs offer guaranteed hours and comprehensive benefits including 50% discounts on hotel stays – great for those family staycations! New colleagues will also be eligible to join the company’s in-house management programme called ‘Aspire’ which offers comprehensive training on hotel management. This can help new entry-level team members get into a management role at Travelodge within a year of joining the company, offering significant salary and development progression.
Travelodge launched its bespoke parents recruitment programme in January 2019, in a bid to help the UK’s 2 million plus unemployed parents into hospitality with the pledge of 3,000 jobs. The company received a record 45,000 job applications for this initial phase and was overwhelmed by parents welcoming reaction to its new recruitment programme.
