Careers at Nelson Hotels

We are always looking for motivated individuals with a real desire to work in this industry and a passion for good food and service, be it in the kitchen or front of house. Experience isn't always necessary, but a desire to learn, dedication and enthusiasm for what you do are. The core of our business is built around the team we employ and for that reason it's imperative to recruit the right people. Not only have we got to like you, but just as important you need to like us! We're looking for people who share the same enthusiasm about the hospitality industry and are willing to go that extra mile to make sure every guest leaves our outlets wishing they didn't have to! If this is the way you tick, we're quite sure we'll click and develop you to your full potential!

We offer a variety of roles from beauty therapists to chefs, and between the four sites we employ over 250 full and part time staff from over 15 different nationalities and of all different ages.

Casual Work
If you're looking for casual work, look no further. Every department within our operation has casual staff and we couldn't do without them. So if you have commitments elsewhere or are simply looking for a bit of weekend or evening work, we'll do our best to accommodate your needs.

Management Careers
Throughout all of our different departments, there are a whole range of managerial roles carrying all levels of responsibility. The most important factor in progressing to this level is that you love what you do! So if you are applying for a front of house position we'd expect that you like the odd tipple of wine, enjoy your cask ales and love locally produced quality food. Most importantly you must have the passion to make every customers visit, a happy one.

All managerial roles require leadership skills and the ability to maintain a happy enjoyable working environment for all your team. The right candidate needs to be efficient, meet targets and run your operation effectively. You'll need the skills to work autonomously and make decisions on your own - but we'll be there to advise as and when needed.

We offer good rates of pay, from supervisors on £14,000-£16,000, deputies on £16,000-£25,000 and managers on £25,000-£45,000. There are also other great benefits including complimentary leisure membership, accommodation for managers, a company pension scheme, on-going training , and of course the joy of enjoying your role in the company and working alongside some fantastic people.

Chef careers
If your talent lies in the kitchen, there's a fantastic team already in place which you can become a part of. We take on chefs of all levels and love nothing more than developing existing members of our team and watching them grow. We also work closely with the local colleges and have many junior chefs who we sponsor through college on a weekly day release.

We are constantly investing in our kitchens to ensure you are working with the best tools available and that the environment in which you work is a happy one. In fact all of our kitchens have air conditioning so there's none of that 'sweating over a hot stove!'

We offer great packages for all of our chefs which include accommodation, company pension schemes, decent holidays, and of course a great team to work within.

If you think you're up to the challenge and are looking for either a part time or full time position, please send your CV to Vikki at personnel@nelsonnorthwest.co.uk
