RECRUITMENT

Do you know a doer, believer or dreamer?

There continues to be a skills shortage in the hospitality industry and we are working hard to, not only attract talent to our team, but strengthen the employee experience for all. We do not hold a sponsor license, due to the majority of available roles not meeting the skilled worker visa requirements. The main routes to employment are;

  • British or Irish Citizenship
  • Pre or Settled Status under the EU settlement scheme
  • Youth Mobility Visa (Main countries include Australia, New Zealand and Canada)
  • Graduate Visa (Can work for 2 years following study visa)
Three ways you can help:
1. REFER A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER

The Employee Recommendation Scheme pays you *£500 for any successful applicant you refer.
*Dependent on their length of service.

2. SHARE JOB POSTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Set up a LinkedIn account and extend your network. Share job posts and updates from The Daffodil Hotel & Spa page across your social network: Share job posts on LinkedIn

3. LEAVE A REVIEW
Feedback reveals many of you feel a real sense of camaraderie within your teams and the wider workforce. Share your knowledge on our Indeed careers page to highlight your positive experiences to potential applicants: Leave your review on Indeed
