HOSPITALITY operator The Inn Collection Group is this year to go on a large recruitment drive.

The re-opening of 12 sites means that the firm is looking to expand its headcount by almost 1,000 across its estate. 

Beginning in earnest as landmark sites in the Lake District and North Yorkshire gear up for a spring reopening, applications are currently being invited for a wide range of roles including general and assistant managers, head chefs and front-of-house opportunities.

The group says that these vacancies offer 'competitive salaries, an attractive benefits package, and a dedicated employee support programme.' Many also offer live-in options as a means to provide accommodation for workers in rural areas. 

The company already employs 900 people across its network. It aims to fill the resultant positions created by these re-openings. The company, which was named best pub employer at the 2019 and 2020 Publican Awards, will grow its headcount to almost 2,000 people.
