English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues has launched a recruitment drive in North Lancashire with a range of job opportunities available for both experienced hospitality professionals and those seeking to enter the industry and forge a new career.

English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues managing director Simon Berry says: "We're optimistic that the hospitality sector will make a strong comeback post lockdown.

“This summer will see increased numbers of UK visitors to North Lancashire. We know that many people are looking forward to the chance to take a proper holiday and to rediscover, or discover for the first time, the wonderful sights and experiences we have here on the doorstep.

“We’re all set for a great summer with a high level of bookings at all our venues, and there is also lots of interest from local diners in our restaurants.

"That means we’re actively looking to recruit to increase our staffing levels to meet that higher demand.”

As a family business, the hotel group prides itself on professional development and great career opportunities for staff. Employees are encouraged to take up part-time studying to enhance their on-the-job training. The company also has many long-service employees who have progressed to management level.

Employees are trained to adopt a '+1 culture', which encourages service that goes above and beyond usual expectations to create memorable and enjoyable environments for its guests.
