De Vere

Following a £100m restoration project, these country estate hotels are on the hunt for fresh, talented people for industry-leading training programmes


eople are at the heart of everything we do and we believe that all of our colleagues

should have an inspired De Vere career. We put our heart and soul into developing

our colleagues, to ensure guests staying at our stunning country estate hotels have the best possible experience. Without our amazing colleagues, we couldn’t bring to life the incredible experiences we want all our guests to enjoy. So how do we do it? We start at the beginning

by hiring the best people. Firstly, and most importantly for us, we look for the right attitude. We know people with an upbeat, enthusiastic and warm attitude are the best fit for our business and give the best experiences to our guests. But we also dedicate ourselves to great training

and development. We don’t just pay lip service to this, we put our money where our mouth is. That’s why we have our own, dedicated, in-house training facility at our Inspire Academy and Chef Development Kitchen. There, we have outstanding training facilities that showcase our commitment to the learning and development of our teams. We also support our people to develop inspired

careers and provide clear paths for progression through our internal development programmes which include: ●●Emerging Leader Programme A top-class hotel supervisory apprenticeship programme that supercharges our hotel colleagues to become the brightest managers of the future. ●●Graduate Programme An industry-leading

hotel graduate scheme that offers unique, blended learning on- and off-site, to make sure our graduates are equipped to be the next set of industry leaders. ●●Inspire to Manage/Inspire to Lead Advanced hotel management programmes for team leaders, heads of department and operations managers, supporting them to take their next step in their management careers. ●●Chef Academy Dedicated to commis chefs, chefs de partie and sous chefs, supporting them to continually develop their culinary skills and stay ahead of the field. Our colleagues enjoy great benefits, too.

As well as offering competitive salaries, we offer fantastic hotel-based incentive and recognition schemes, access to a comprehensive staff benefits portal, discounted colleague stays at our hotels, free uniforms, free meals on duty, free parking on-site, and financial rewards for delivering sensational service. We’re investing for the future: we’ve spent almost £100m carefully restoring and refurbishing our collection of country estate hotels and modern event spaces, meaning they’ve undergone an astonishing transformation. But that investment means nothing without our outstanding colleagues, who pride themselves on delivering memorable moments to our guests each and every time.

Sally Van Santen, Banqueting and Events Supervisor, De Vere Beaumont Estate “Finishing college at 18, I did what a lot of young people do and kind of fell into hospitality, but I soon realised that it is exactly the job and industry I was cut out for. I worked for four years at a local gastropub before realising I needed to be somewhere I could really spread my wings and move up to the next level. “As soon as I pulled through the gates

at De Vere Beaumont Estate I knew that I had to work there. I felt a connection with the hotel straight away, and when I was offered the role of Banqueting and Events Supervisor, I accepted immediately. “I now manage a team of 25 and together

we run many different types of events and dinners. In fact, there can often be more than 1,000 conference guests in the hotel on just one day! This job is amazing because of the variety of work and the face-to-face contact I have with guests every day. “You get to know the smallest details of what guests want, and I’m encouraged to surprise and delight them by going that extra mile. I have fantastic training opportunities on tap and get to stretch myself with the support I need. That helps me constantly improve what I do to make sure our guests have the best possible experience. I’m so excited about developing my De Vere career and am already looking forward to what the future holds.”
