New hotel to create 45 jobs
Premier Inn says it will create 45 jobs, including some for deaf people and long-term unemployed, with its new Titanic Quarter/City Airport hotel.
The budget hotel chain is working closely with the Department for Employment & Learning (DEL) and the Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID) as part of its latest recruitment drive.
When the hotel opens on November 8, it will provide opportunities for deaf candidates, those hard of hearing, and the long-term unemployed.
Keith Freeman, of Premier Inn Northern Ireland, says: “Being able to work with the RNID to deliver the skills that our team need to make all our guests feel comfortable and well looked after has been a breath of fresh air. Now taking it a step further and offering opportunities for the deaf and hard of hearing to join our teams will only help in our delivery of service for our guests.”
Alan McClure of RNID praised the chain for training staff in basic sign language, while Employment Minister Sir Reg Empey welcomed the opportunities for the |long-term unemployed.
