Recruitment event for Shropshire hotel
05 Jul 2016
by Kirsty Smallman

Hundreds of job seekers from students to managers are set to turn out at a top Shropshire hotel recruitment evening as bosses prepare for the busy wedding and tourism season.

The Best Western Valley Hotel in Ironbridge is looking to fill a number of roles and bosses hope the event, which runs from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday July 7, will attract prospective candidates who wish to find out more about the business.

The vacancies to fill include a full time food and beverage manager, part-time breakfast chef and two part-time receptionist roles – one split between midweek and weekends and one solely weekends, bar and waiting on staff aged 16 and over and evening and weekend kitchen porters.

The hotel itself is a Georgian listed building with 44 bedrooms situated by the river, with 2 AA rosettes for culinary excellence, which hosts many events including weddings, christenings and conferences and is a leading hotel in the World Heritage Site attracting thousands of people throughout the summer season.

Lisa Snape, sales and marketing manager, said: “These jobs would be ideal for many different residents, from those looking to further their managerial career in the food and beverage role, to students just finishing school as well as people looking for weekend work.

“The weekend roles tend to be popular with people wanting to avoid childcare fees in the week as they have family members or partners who can look after their young children at the weekends.

“With so many students finishing GCSEs, A’levels and returning home to Shropshire from university for the summer this is an ideal time for them to start work.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming new members of the team and know they will be busy as we prepare for the summer during which we host many weddings, events and celebrations.

“Best Western Valley Hotel also welcomes thousands of visitors every summer who come from across the world to visit the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge.”
