2014 – Travelodge Management Apprenticeship Programme
We are pleased to announce our 2014 management apprenticeship scheme. We have successfully ran the apprenticeship scheme for 3 years and have seen some of our first apprentices graduate over the last 12 months into management both in hotels and head office.
Whether youíre looking for your first job in hospitality or thinking about an alternative to university, itís your attitude that really counts. We like to work with people who are determined to provide a brilliant service to our customers. That means being committed to learning and progressing every day.
During our 2 year programme, whilst being paid you will learn about every aspect of our business as well as continuing your education and learning. All giving you the opportunity to become a Hotel Manager within 3 years of joining us!
What’s in it for you?
As a Travelodge Apprentice you will be offered a contract for a minimum of 30 hours per week for 2 years. During your first 9 months you will get to know your Travelodge hotel in detail, experiencing each of our hotel team member roles (reception, bar café and housekeeping) for yourself as well as completing your level 2 Apprenticeship in Multi-Skilled Hospitality.
For the remainder of the programme you will gain further in depth practical experience of what working in a Travelodge hotel means, learning supervisory skills and completing both our First Steps to Management and a Level 3 Diploma (Advanced Apprenticeship) in Hospitality Supervision and Leadership.
There will be plenty of training workshops and support along the way to ensure you are successful on your journey to gaining a place on our Management Development Programme and becoming a future Travelodge Hotel Manager.
