Coastal towns unemployed to 'benefit from 1,000 jobs'
Hotel chain Travelodge plans to select employees for 55 new coastal hotels from local jobseekers, it has been announced.

Travelodge, who expressed plans to build the new hotels and expand its workforce last month, has now teamed up with the Local Employer Partnership (LEP) programme to help job seekers in coastal areas back to work.

The £150 million expansion of their hotels along the UK coastline means will see the creation of around 1,000 positions.

Chrissie Herbert, director of human resources at the firm, said: "LEP's are a cost effective way for us to access potential new recruits for our hotels […] 65 per cent of jobs this year have gone to people who were out of work."

With the credit crunch taking hold of the UK economy, a recent report from the Recruitment and Employment Federation found that permanent job placements this year fell by their rate fastest since 2001.
