This month we shine the spotlight on Almarose Hotels and Resorts. Passionate about supporting the Armed Forces community, Almarose not only helps individuals to find the right hospitality role when they leave Service but supports military families with flexible work contracts.
ABOUT ALMAROSE HOTELS & RESORTS
Almarose is an independent hotel management firm that owns and operates a prestigious portfolio of over 20 individual four-star hotels and resorts in the UK. Though the hotels, which trade under the renowned Hilton, Accor and Marriott brands, differ in character and style, they are united by Almarose’s distinctive approach to creating memorable guest experiences through outstanding service.
Almarose holds a Silver Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Award and is an active employer of the Armed Forces community.
WHAT DOES ALMAROSE OFFER TO THE ARMED FORCES COMMUNITY?
Passionate about supporting the Armed Forces Community, Almarose employs – and assists the career development of reservists, veterans, military spouses. Marking its commitment to the Armed Forces, the company signed the Armed Forces Covenant in January 2020 and has since strived to make Almarose a great place to work for Forces personnel and their families.
Putting people at the heart of everything it does, Almarose is dedicated to helping individuals within the Armed Forces community to find the right role to suit their individual skills and circumstances. Counting several former military employees among its staff, Almarose understands the associated trials and tribulations that come with transitioning out of the Forces and is on hand to help those going through the process.
Going the extra mile to offer an extra level of support, Almarose’s Chief People Officer, Bobby Davis, has offered her services to support any veteran or military family member looking to work for the company. Drawing on her own military transition experience, Bobby is willing to help with CV writing, skills translation and advice.
WHY WORK FOR ALMAROSE?
Working in hospitality brings with it the benefit of selecting your hours to work with your lifestyle. Whether you are looking for a full-time contract, part-time work, early mornings, nights or ad-hoc shifts there are options for everyone.
Giving reservists and spouses the flexibility they need to honour in order to sustain employment around military commitments, Almarose has also amended its company policies to ensure that their careers are not disadvantaged due to changing circumstances. On top of this, the hotel management group is willing, wherever possible, to support military families with employment at another hotel if they relocate elsewhere in the UK. Alamarose may even be able to offer temporary, or long-term live-in accommodation at one of their hotels to ease this transition.
The quality of service is of paramount importance to Almarose, so the company offers full training and career development opportunities to every employee. This is no different for service personnel. Almarose will also help you to gain specific industry qualifications if required.
Whether you want to work on reception, in customer service, in the kitchen, as a chef or even outdoors in a greenkeeping role, there will be a role to suit your skillset at Almarose. And, with so many different properties to work at, there are options to work in many different locations around the UK.
The world of hospitality is vibrant, lively and always interesting. Jobs at Almarose are all about people and creating memorable experiences, so a career in the industry can create an impact far beyond the calls of a hotel. This people-oriented culture also extends to the way Almarose looks after and supports its staff.
