About the employer

Training, development and shoulders to lean on... As a company we like to refer to ourselves as a "Collection" and that's because whilst we occasionally add another property to the family, we still consider ourselves to be quite a small intimate group. For that reason, the training and development that's on offer within out properties is a very organic affair. We're incredibly keen that every staff member shows a desire to improve themselves and even keener that we can support and supply that demand. So wherever you think you can grow, do make sure you check in with your line manager and we'll find the time to include whatever is necessary as soon as we can. Your Future We hope that as Calcot Collection recruit, you feel safe in the knowledge that your career will be well cared for by us. Indeed, whether you have your sights set on the Academy model or if a more relaxed development stile is what you're hankering for you can be assured that at the basis of all our training is the desire for you to progress, learn more and develop both for you and for the sake of the business. We understand that during your time with us support is the key to making your job enjoyable. When you arrive, you will be assigned a "buddy" who will help you to settle in. You will also be assigned a Line Manager whose role is to ensure that you receive all the training you need to be an effective and happy team member. Last, but not least, our HR tram are on hand to help with anything else you can think of.
