About the job

Job Description

District Manager (Part Time Job Share Considered) circa £55,000 per annum plus bonus and benefits

We are recruiting for a District Manager for our North London district.  You will be responsible for the performance of around 15 hotels ranging from our smallest lodge to one of our newest large BarCafe Hotels.   The ideal candidate will have multi-site management experience, preferably in a leisure or retail background, and be able to demonstrate your ability to influence and manage remotely.

Travelodge is a fast expanding, value hotel chain with a heritage of over 30 years. We now have over 580 hotels across the UK, Spain and Ireland. 

We're actively building diverse teams and welcome applications from everyone. But simply having a diverse workforce is not enough. We aim to build an inclusive workplace, where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences, and recognise the importance of teams reflecting the communities they serve.  We also want our leaders to be a reflection of their teams,  as we know there’s nothing better than seeing someone like yourself in a senior role to give you the ambition to progress.  And to make sure this role is truly open to everyone, we’d love to explore how we can make this role work for someone who may want part-time hours as part of a job share.

As a District Manager you will coach and inspire a team to drive exceptional customer experience and business results. You will support and motivate your Hotel Managers to deliver brand standards to support our vision to deliver affordable travel for everyone. You will drive a best in class mentality, keeping customer and colleagues at the centre of all business decisions.  You’ll work with your colleagues across the business to ensure your hotels are well maintained and compliant, and will drive the Food & Beverage experience within your hotels.  And of course you’ll coach and develop your team to ensure a robust succession plan.

At Travelodge, we believe that behaviours are just as important as the activities you carry out. The ones we look for in every colleague are Care about People, Attention to Detail and Drive for Results. 

To succeed as a District Manager, you will be a strong team motivator, be committed to supporting their wellbeing and development, and be passionate about customer experience. You are likely to have managed teams across a multi-site environment in Retail, Hospitality or other Leisure industries, but candidates from other industries are welcome too. We are looking for someone with real passion and energy for delivering high standards to meet our brand aspirations.  In addition, we’re looking for someone who can demonstrate:

  • A genuine passion and enthusiasm for customer service with the ability to role model

  • Outstanding leadership qualities and be able to inspire and motivate.

  • Balance driving for results with the ability to coach and mentor your Hotel Managers

  • Demonstrate high levels of energy, drive and resilience, with the ability to thrive in a fast paced, dynamic environment

  • Great communication skills with the ability to engage with people at all levels

  • Have the ability to drive a best in class ethos whilst at the same time identify best practice and sharing accordingly

  • Possess an uncompromising drive for standards and service whilst always exceeding customer expectations

Studies have shown that women and people from enthic minority backgrounds are less likely to apply for roles when they don't meet every single requirement listed. We hope we’ve made these generic enough to appeal to everyone but if you’re not sure if you’ve got exactly what we need, please apply anyway so we can review your application - you may well be just the person we’re looking for!

Package: Circa £55,000 per annum, depending on experience (pro-rata for part time), plus:

  •   £6,000 car allowance or company car ( BMW 3 Series or Similar)

  •   Ability to earn a lucrative annual bonus
