Inn Collection Group on the hunt for 200 new staff
The Inn Collection Group is recruiting for 200 additional jobs it has created across its venues in the north of England.
The award-winning operator is offering full- and part-time, permanent positions across its expanding portfolio of inns in Northumberland, the Lake District, Yorkshire, Wearside and County Durham.
The announcement comes as the group prepares to re-open its trading sites on 17 May.
Positions ranging from front-of-house to kitchen and housekeeping are being offered as part of the group’s INNtelligent recruitment initiative, which champions flexible working opportunities, above average wages, free online training and employee benefits for staff while promoting hospitality as a career with professional development opportunities.
“We are delighted to be in a position where we can open up such a great number of permanent jobs across our sites," comments managing director of The Inn Collection Group Sean Donkin.
“The hospitality industry has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic, so it’s fantastic to be shouting about good news in the sector with the news that we are creating 200 jobs.
“This is an exciting and timely opportunity for people to join a vibrant and growing company like The Inn Collection Group as we continue to expand and bring in further outstanding sites into our portfolio. We’re a company that genuinely buys into its staff and recognises they are at the heart of our success and invests in them accordingly.
“There’s a myth that working in hospitality means long, unsociable hours and low rates of pay. We believe in flexibility with wide-ranging, pivotal career opportunities and overturning the one-size fits all approach.
“We have team members who work day shifts to fit with family commitments whereas other people prefer the buzz and energy of weekend or evening hours. It’s all about working together to find the best solutions for everyone.”
The group, which already employs over 500 people, has appointed Cath Bellhouse (pictured, left) in the newly formed recruitment manager role to lead the hiring process.
