Travelodge to hire 80 management apprentices in 2014

Budget hotel group Travelodge is to recruit 80 new apprentices this year for its Junior Management Programme (JuMP).

The announcement has been made at the start of what is National Apprenticeship Week, which runs until Friday.

Launched in 2011, JuMP offers A-level students an alternative to university via a fast track route into management. The two-year programme provides a mix of salaried work experience and study, leading to a management position by the age of 21.

Recruitment for this year's apprenticeship programme will start in the spring, with positions in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Cambridge and Glasgow.

Jon Hendry Pickup, chief operating officer at Travelodge, said: "National Apprenticeship Week highlights to school leavers that apprenticeship programmes can be an excellent foundation upon which to build successful, long-term careers.

"Our JuMP programme is a great example of this - over a period of two years, a JuMP apprentice will learn all aspects of operating a Travelodge hotel, whilst furthering their education and receiving a salary."

Last year, Travelodge received more than 6,000 applications from school leavers for its 51 placements. The company's first class of apprentices graduated in November 2013 and are now managing Travelodge hotels across the UK.
