Travelodge has announced that it is looking to expand its 120 strong nationwide in-house maintenance team with a further 41 new positions.
The full-time positions will be field-based, with employees carrying out a variety of maintenance related tasks across the company’s 563 Travelodge sites. Each maintenance engineer will be given their own network of hotels to service.
According to the budget hotel chain, the positions will need to be filled immediately and applicants must have at least one trade skill-set which includes a City & Guilds / NVQ 2 or equivalent qualification in a trade (such as plumbing, electrical, carpentry, painting, plastering or air-conditioning).
Successful candidates will be given a branded “kitted-out” vehicle to enable them to travel across their network of hotels. They will also receive a comprehensive personal package of branded uniform and high quality tools.
Scott Rutherford, Travelodge technical services director said: “We are delighted to be expanding our in-house maintenance team with a further 41 team members. This dedicated team is the backbone of our operation and regarded as the fourth emergency services for our 563 hotel teams, so each Maintenance Engineer holds a very valuable position within the company.
“Candidates must hold one trade skill but we are committed to developing and expanding our Maintenance Engineers’ skill sets so that they are fully versatile in multi trade skills.”
