Robyn, Housekeeping Support Advisor

The Jobcentre opened Robyn’s eyes up to a career within Travelodge: she jumped at the opportunity and first joined as a Hotel Team Member. Throughout the years, she successfully completed the Management Development Programme, which has in turn opened many new avenues in her career at Travelodge – from being an Assistant Hotel Manager in our flagship hotel to supporting a recent Learning and Development project.
