Forget Uni and debt - earn while you learn at Travelodge

As one of the fastest growing and most recognised budget brand hotels, we are committed to offering you a real alternative to Uni and Debt with our Management Apprenticeship Programme.

What’s in it for you?

You will be paid an initial apprenticeship wage of £4.22 per hour, rising to £4.98 per hour(under 21's National Minimum Wage) after successful completion of 3 months probation.

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 a 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.
