The budget hotel chain has announced the creation of 5,000 jobs in London by 2025. 05/03/2012
The jobs are set to be created as part of the companies aim to open a further 184 hotels across the capital over the next 13 years.
In addition, the hotel chain currently has 20 vacancies in London on its junior management apprenticeship scheme, juMP. The company needs to fill these positions immediately and you can apply for them on their website.
The juMP scheme was implemented to develop the growth of Travelodge and to help Britain’s young and unemployed get back into work. It also offers school leavers an alternative to applying for university.
The announcement was made at the opening of the 500th Travelodge in London Stratford, by Travelodge CEO, Guy Parsons.
‘Hospitality and tourism is the UK's fifth biggest industry and is growing faster than almost any other. Travelodge is a powerhouse of the industry, which is why we are continuing to create jobs.
‘JuMP has proved to be an incredibly popular scheme. At the start of the year we received over 3,000 applications for just 45 positions. Hospitality is an excellent sector in which young people can develop successful careers.’
The fast track management programme not only provides a job, but also offers on the job training throughout the business, as well as further education and the opportunity to earn £30,000 as a hotel manager in three years.
This is in contrast to heading off to university and then graduating with £40,000 worth of debt and entering a crowded job market.
