Meet some of the team
Matt Campbell | Hotel Manager
"Why do I absolutely love working in our Operations? It’s working alongside my fantastic team. It’s challenging and rewarding looking after all our guests and there’s nothing quite like it.
Whitbread is a fabulous company to work for, there are plenty of opportunities to pursue here and the possibilities are endless in a business that’s so big."
Alix Watkinson | Housekeeper
"The best things about working at Premier Inn are the atmosphere at and the people I work alongside. I’ve made friends for life here.
There’s a real culture of development too. I’m training to become a Head Housekeeper as I want to progress in my career and I’m being actively helped to make that happen."
Angelika Zajac | Deputy Hotel Manager
"I love working for Premier Inn because they invest in their people, there is no judgment on where you have come from or your background.
I have been with the company for 6 years. I started part time and then I began an apprenticeship to help build my confidence and develop me as a manager. I received a lot of support from my trainer and managers, who supported me, to make me the person I am now."
Khaoula Bannouri | Deputy Hotel Manager
"Today I’m enrolled on apprenticeship scheme taking my level 3 hospitality in a business that I love. But this journey began 9 years ago, when I was struggling to find a job until I applied for part time housekeeping at Premier Inn.
I worked my way up, surrounded by people who made me feel appreciated, treated me with respect and gave me daily encouragement with a focus on work/life balance. There’s always there’s always room to grow here, the challenges have built my confidence and strength, the responsibilities always taught me something new. I look forward to seeing more success and progress for my team and I’m proud to say I work with Whitbread."
Libby Goswell | Reception
"I love working for Premier Inn and ensuring the guest have the best experience staying with us.
I had only been in the business five months and I have started my level 2 apprenticeship in hospitality so I gain a registered qualifications while getting paid, with support from my line manager to make it happen."
Jake Powell | Kitchen Team Leader
"I love working for Premier Inn because of the fast progression and lots of different opportunities to learn new skills.
I love my job because I get to work in a fast paced environment that is constantly changing, no two days are ever the same. I started at Premier Inn at the age of 17 in the front of house team before progressing through to the kitchen and I am now Kitchen Team Leader. I will be signed up to the apprenticeship scheme soon meaning I can get even more out of my job."
Kirsty Northcote | Head Housekeeper
"I started as a ground floor team member and the restaurant was my favourite place – I loved being busy and meeting all the guests. I became a Duty Manager and I then did my level 2 apprenticeship, winning apprentice of the year! I was so proud of this achievement.
I’ve done so much here, raising money for GOSH has led me to doing everything from a sky dive to a 26-mile walk and everything in between, which led to a very special visit to the hospital. Now I’m Head Housekeeper, learning the department in depth and taking on my level 3 apprenticeship. I feel I have had an amazing adventure with Premier Inn and look forward to seeing where I end up next."
Connor Chadwick | Housekeeper
"I love working for Premier Inn – it’s like a big family who are so supportive and accepting. I am registered as deaf and there has been no barriers, just full of opportunities and support, I hope one day to be a Head Housekeeper.
I'd love to see more deaf people apply and see for themselves that there's nothing stopping them getting the career they want here."
