An award winning Scottish hotel group is on the hunt for fresh talent to join its team.
The Manorview Hotel Group, which has eight hotels across West Central Scotland, is gearing up to come out of hibernation with a group wide recruitment campaign to fill several roles across its portfolio including two GM roles and two head chef roles.
The roles will be based in the Lynnhurst Hotel in Johnstone, Bowfield in Howwood which is set to re-launch this Spring. But like all Manorview team members the successful candidates will have the opportunity to work as part of the wider team with career progression opportunities available group wide.
The positions being advertised are significant roles and are integral to the success of the business, providing exciting opportunities for those looking to progress their career in hospitality.
Some of the roles being advertised include restaurant and hotel managers, head and sous chefs and kitchen porters, night manager, leisure instructor and housekeeping positions.
Manorview has been using the extended lockdown periods to prepare for the relaunch of The Redhurst Hotel in Giffnock which is currently undergoing a multimillion pound refurbishment, now nearing the final stages. They anticipate being ready to launch in line with the restrictions in Scotland lifted. The opening will mean the group will continue with its recruitment programme with further roles being made available in the coming weeks.
Claire Johnston, head of people at Manorview Hotel Group said: “Our latest recruitment campaign is all about finding the right people to join our team at a crucial time in the development of our brand. We are extremely proud of the team culture we have created. Our team has been sharing their Manorview experiences to help us create blogs and short videos which we’ll be sharing gradually throughout our recruitment drive. We hope they give potential team members an insight into what it’s really like to work for the group.
“People have always been and always will be at the heart of everything we do at Manorview and we strive to set standards in the industry. Our reputation for investing in team training and development is something we focus heavily on and we are very proud to do so. Finding and retaining talent is key to building a happy and motivated workforce and we always look for passion, personality alongside skills and experience.
“Like so many industries, hospitality has been hit extremely hard during the pandemic but we are looking to the future and there are lots of exciting developments happening with the group. I would encourage anyone looking for a new challenge to apply.”
Manorview Hotel Group works with Skills Development Scotland on its Modern Apprenticeship Scheme and also encourages the team to apply for HIT Scotland (Hospitality Industry Trust) in the scholarship programme each year – with this year 11 people taking part. The management team roll out an annual staff training calendar covering all aspects of the brand journey and use their internal People Champions to support the team and ensure all training needs are constantly reviewed and identified.
The Group currently has 374 members of its team employed across its eight sites and in addition to the Renfrewshire Hotels, the group also have roles in their other hotels elsewhere across West Central Scotland at Boclair House, The Torrance, The Commercial and the new look Redhurst Hotel.
