Graduate jobs to be created by Travelodge?

Published: Tuesday, 19 April 2011   Category: Sport, leisure and hospitality

Approximately 550 new jobs are to be created by Travelodge, with new graduate opportunities likely to be made available.

The hotelier expects to create the vacancies through a £100 million expansion programme across 36 different sites, in partnership with British pub companies.

It intends to create the positions by 2015, as a result of its plans to pursue new development opportunities with Greene King, JW Lees, Marston's, Mitchells & Butlers and JD Wetherspoon.

The expansion plans come as a result of improved revenues from consumers eating out, despite the current economic climate.

Brigid Simmonds, chief executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, said: "While pubs have faced tough times in recent years, this is a great example of how they are fighting back.

"Pubs are perfectly placed to provide the hospitality at sites next to hotels."

Travelodge intends to develop a 53-room hotel in Kidderminster with funding from Marstons and a 62-bed hotel alongside a JD Wetherspoon in Glossop.
