Inn Collection Group to Create 25 New Jobs in Durham City

Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 13.17.19A fast-growing hospitality specialist is creating 25 new jobs in Durham City.

The new jobs will be at The new King’s Lodge Inn following the major refurbishment of the property in Durham City by The Inn Collection Group. This will bring the total number of employees to 180.

All existing hotel employees have transferred to the new business but additional catering and hospitality staff will be required for other areas of the business. The refurbishment of the ground floor will not only create two additional bedrooms but also expand the business with the current separate restaurant area becoming an integral part of the new King’s Lodge Inn.

There will be full-time and part-time opportunities for front of house, bar staff as well as full kitchen team including head chef​

Anyone interested in the new employment opportunities should contact send their CV to: Closing date for applications is 2​8th March. Successful applicants will then begin employment on April 11th.

Sean Donkin from The Inn Collection Group, said:  “We are very pleased to be opening our first city Inn. We have safeguarded the jobs of those staff employed in former hotel, however our plans to develop the site mean we need to recruit more talented hospitality people for both the kitchen and front of house areas, and would ask anyone interested in working for The Inn Collection Group at the new King’s Lodge Inn, to contact us as soon as possible”.

The King’s Lodge Inn is now part of the Inn Collection Group family of north east pubs with rooms. The fast-growing hospitality specialist also own The Lindisfarne Inn near Holy Island, The Bamburgh Castle Inn at Seahouses and The Hog’s Head Inn at Alnwick, The Seaton Lane Inn near Seaham as well as The King’s Head Inn at Newton under Roseberry in North Yorkshire; as well as the soon to open Commissioners Quay Inn in Blyth.

The Inn Collection Group is currently shortlisted in the prestigious national Publican Awards. The group has reached the finals in the Best Accommodation Provider category at the awards ceremony – the pub industry’s equivalent of the Oscars.

The fast growing hospitality specialist was named Best Leisure Business in the Northumberland Business Awards in 2015. Taking top honours in the sought after leisure category, The Inn Collection Group was recognised by judges for its innovation, proven track record, value for money and standards of service across the hospitality sector. In the North East Tourism Awards, The Bamburgh Castle Inn was named the Tourism Pub of the Year and The Hog’s Head Inn in Alnwick, won silver in the Access for All category.
