IHG to create 3,500 new jobs across 36 new UK hotels

The InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is set to create 3,500 jobs across the UK over the next three years.

The company said it would recruit hotel porters, catering assistants, waiters, waitresses and bar staff as it prepares to open 36 new hotels in the UK over the next three to four years.

Worldwide, it is set to create 100,000 jobs worldwide in the same period as it opens 1,400 new hotels across the globe.

Andy Cosslett, IHG's chief executive, said: "Hotels provide a quick and flexible way to get people back into work and provide a much-needed stimulus to the economy. We're playing our part with 3,500 additional opportunities in the next three years, but a commitment from the Government to support and promote the tourism industry would mean we could create even more jobs."
