Warner Leisure has 300 jobs on offer at six hotels in Wales and England

Warner Leisure Hotels says it has around 300 jobs on offer at six hotels in Wales and England.

The company, which employs 2,500 staff, is stepping up recruitment as it prepares to fully reopen sites on May 17.

It comes at a time when the UK hospitality sector is struggling to recruit due to thousands of staff leaving the sector for other industries during the pandemic and Brexit making it harder to get in workers from Europe.

The crisis could mean some hotels and restaurants being forced to limit operations.

Warner – part of the Bourne Leisure group – is looking for chefs, restaurant and bar teams, housekeepers, gardeners and maintenance workers at five hotels in England and one in Wales.

Head of operations and people Ian Gyte said: “We’re so excited to be able to re-open our hotels and are looking for a wealth of talent to join the team.

“Warner is a key employer throughout the UK and we’re extremely proud to be able to offer jobs to thousands of people up and down the country during what’s been a particularly difficult time for job seekers.

“This year is set to be a really big year for UK holidays with thousands of holidaymakers looking to escape to the great British coast and countryside for a well-deserved break.”

Hotels looking for team include Thoresby Hall, Nottinghamshire, Alvaston Hall, Cheshire, Nidd Hall, North Yorkshire, Sinah Warren Coastal Hotel, Hampshire, Holme Lacy House, Herefordshire and Bodelwyddan Castle, North Wales.

Team members will receive training, free uniform and PPE.
