Northern pub group serves up 200 new jobs across ahead of staycation "boom"
A northern pub operator has announced that it is creating 200 jobs across Yorkshire and the North East.
The Inn Collection Group, based in Newcastle, owns more than a dozen inns and pubs across the country, and has announced plans to create 200 jobs ahead of venues reopening on 17 May.
The company has said that it is creating the new positions in anticipation of a staycation “boom” as lockdown restrictions ease.
Positions offered will range from front-of-house to kitchen and housekeeping as part of the group’s INNtelligent recruitment initiative, which aims to provide flexible working opportunities, above average wages, free online training and employee benefits for staff.
Sean Donkin, managing director of The Inn Collection Group said: “We are delighted to be in a position where we can open up such a great number of permanent jobs across our sites.
“The hospitality industry has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic, so it’s fantastic to be shouting about good news in the sector with the news that we are creating 200 jobs.
“This is an exciting and timely opportunity for people to join a vibrant and growing company like The Inn Collection Group as we continue to expand and bring in further outstanding sites into our portfolio.
“We’re a company that genuinely buys into its staff and recognises they are at the heart of our success and invests in them accordingly.
“There’s a myth that working in hospitality means long, unsociable hours and low rates of pay. We believe in flexibility with wide-ranging, pivotal career opportunities and overturning the one-size fits all approach.
“We have team members who work day shifts to fit with family commitments whereas other people prefer the buzz and energy of weekend or evening hours. It’s all about working together to find the best solutions for everyone.”
