Travelodge is today launching a nationwide recruitment drive, with 170 positions to be filled in London.

With 80 hotels in the region, these roles will all offer an opportunity to create a new career.

In a statement Travelodge said: "The UK hospitality sector is the third largest employer and one of the main revenue-generating industries in this country. It is also one of the very few industries that enables entry-level candidates to climb the career ladder into a top management position."

Travelodge hopes to help people entering the workforce, so if you are a parent thinking of starting a job or career when the schools reopen in September, the company can help as it is dedicated to supporting parents by offering jobs close to home, hours that match the school run, benefits that suit families and a path into management.
