A family business since their doors first opened in 1920, five generations of Seymours have worked for the company. Over 350 staff are now employed across the group’s six hotels and leisure businesses during the summer months.
‘There’s a recruitment crisis in our
local hospitality industry and we all
have a role to play in raising the profile
of how rewarding and stimulating a
career in hospitality can be for local students,’ said managing director David Seymour.
‘Development, success and enjoyment are the three pillars of a career with Seymour Hotels.
‘Across the group we employ everyone from chefs to accountants, gardeners to lifeguards. Our staff are our most valuable asset and we work incredibly hard to find and nurture talent.’
