Travelodge to hire 4,000 people as it launches huge recruitment drive

Hotel chain Travelodge has launched a new recruitment drive in an effort to hire 4,000 people in housekeeping roles this year.

The company said it was hoping to attract parents wanting to return to work by offering flexible hours designed around the school run.

The jobs will be in new Travelodge hotels opening this year, extra summer cover and to fill vacancies that become available in the company's 573 UK hotels.

Around 150 vacancies need to be filled immediately.

Travelodge said its housekeeping teams are regarded as the company's "heroes", spending more than one million hours a year making-up beds between them.

Travelodge said many of its hotel managers started in a housekeeping job.

"We have a strong established workforce of working parents, offering jobs close to home, flexible hours that can work around the school run, benefits that suit families and a career path into management specifically for mums and dads."
