The brand new Holiday Inn Blackpool, which is set to open this Spring, has launched a recruitment drive to fill 70 vacancies.
The hotel is owned by Blackpool Council and is a key part of its Talbot Gateway regeneration project. RBH Hospitality Management will run the site on the council's behalf.
The jobs up for grabs range from managerial positions to front-of-house and housekeeping staff.
To support the campaign, the Holiday Inn Blackpool has launched a bespoke recruitment website, listing the live opportunities on offer as well as roles that will open in the coming weeks at both the Holiday Inn Blackpool & Marco’s New York Italian restaurant.
Mark Winter, general manager of the Holiday Inn Blackpool and Paul Powell, who was recently appointed as operations manager are helping the recruitment drive get underway with visits to local job platform centres to spread awareness amongst potential applicants from the area.
Mark Winter said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to our rigorous recruitment campaign so far and the official launch of our ‘Be More You’ campaign today will help spark the next wave of applicants for our amazing new hotel and restaurant.
“We’ve been helping spread the word about the campaign in the local community with visits to Blackpool & The Fylde College, The Platform & The Place for Skills & Work to speak firsthand to potential applicants and let them know how to get involved."
