Travelodge to adopt speed interviews to find new managers

Budget hotel chain Travelodge is replacing traditional style interviews in favour of three-minute speed interviews as it looks to recruit 30 managers in London.

Ruth Saunders, Travelodge resourcing manager, said: "We all know that first impressions count. Statistics differ but most experts agree that we all decide whether or not we like someone within the first minute and a half of meeting someone.

We will recruit more than 1,000 managers by 2020 and it is imperative that we continue to find new and innovative ways to recruit in order to find the right people."

The speed-dating interviews will take place on Thursday 28 February at London City road Travelodge and candidates can call 01844 358801.

Travelodge, which is owned by Dubai International Capital, currently operates 330 hotels.
