A North East pub operator is creating over 300 jobs as part of a recruitment campaign introducing flexible working for staff.
The Inn Collection Group is rolling out its INNtelligent drive across its 13 pubs in the Northumberland and County Durham, as well as those in Yorkshire and the Lake District, which promises flexible working hours, multiple employee benefits, free online training and a bonus scheme.
The group has invested over £100k in its online training programme which is delivered via an app and promises a learning ‘journey’, with an initial induction, core models such as food hygiene, through to sessions on management.
In Cumbria alone, the group is offering over 200 full and part-time positions across its growing portfolio of inns, which includes the newly opened The Coniston Inn at Coniston, The Ambleside Inn in Ambleside, The Pheasant at Bassenthwaite and The Swan at Grasmere.
Sean Donkin, managing director of The Inn Collection Group, said: “Our INNtelligent campaign is all about building a happy, skilled team across our inns. We want to dispel the old school mentality that jobs in hospitality equate to long, unsociable hours, working every weekend and low rates of pay.
“The Inn Collection Group is a vibrant, company experiencing exceptional growth. We offer wide-ranging and flexible career opportunities, rather than taking a one-size fits all approach.
INNtelligent recognises people are individuals with differing needs and requirements when it comes to work. We have people who prefer to work at weekends or evenings because they’re students, or they simply enjoy the buzz and atmosphere, while working parents often opt for day- time shifts.
“We are offering people more flexibility with full and part time positions in roles ranging from chefs and kitchen opportunities through to housekeeping, maintenance and front of house. It’s all about working with people to find solutions that are a fit for everyone.”
Chris Moor, operations manager with The Inn Collection Group, said: “We offer employment all year round, have excellent training in place and promote opportunities for people to rise through the ranks. We look after staff, with benefits that include bonuses and company discounts.”
