Travelodge extends employment commitment to new Chester hotel

Travelodge is to extend its Local Employer Partnership (LEP) commitment with the opening of a new hotel in Chester at the start of August.

The 60-room Chester Central hotel, which will open on 30 July, is part of the LEP scheme the budget hotel chain signed up to last autumn. It is being administered on a site-by-site basis, starting with the new Southwark hotel that opened earlier this month.

Under the LEP, Travelodge will seek to recruit staff for the hotel's 20-strong workforce from the ranks of Chester's long-term unemployed via the local Jobcentre Plus.

Travelodge Chester hotel manager Annie McIntyre said: "At Travelodge, we believe in developing our people and offer an excellent training and career advancement programme."

At the start of this week the budget hotel chain announced it had bought two properties from Swallow Hotels and exchanged on a further five hotels in a combined deal worth £70m.
