THIRTY jobs have gone on offer at a hotel which is about to unveil a new multi-million pound attraction.

Wynyard Hall Hotel will open the second stage of its £5.3m gardens project to the public on August 4.

And it is holding a recruitment day as the search begins for staff.

The four star hotel is looking to recruit at least 30 people to work in the new Walled Garden visitor centre with an unspecified number of full and part time vacancies, such as cleaning and turn-down staff, also on offer within the hotel and spa.

The positions on offer include food service and retail staff, supervisors, chefs, cleaners and waiting staff for the Walled Garden café and the adjacent Grand Marquee, which was installed last year and is now one of the region’s largest conference and wedding venues.

Anyone interested in applying is invited to attend a recruitment day, which will be held in the Grand Marquee, in the grounds of the hall.

The recruitment day will be held on May 27 from 3.30pm until 7.30pm. Allison Antonopoulos, managing director at Wynyard Hall Hotel, said: “This will be a wonderful opportunity to join us at the beginning of something that promises to be very special indeed.

“There has been considerable interest in the Walled Garden across the UK and we will be looking for people who have differing skills and abilities but who will share our pride in this breathtakingly beautiful venue.”

No appointment is necessary to attend the recruitment day but applicants are asked to bring an up to date copy of their CV.

The Walled Garden at Wynyard Hall Hotel, which was established by the Hall’s owners, the Marquises of Londonderry, in the 19th century, has more than 3000 roses and is the realisation of a long-held dream of Wynyard Hall’s owner, Sir John Hall

It has been designed and planted by multi-award-winning Royal Horticultural Society landscape architect Alistair Baldwin.

The first stage, adjacent to the Walled Garden, was the £1.7m installation of a Grand Marquee and management suite, for weddings and large scale corporate events

Further stages will include a £2m investment in the creation of a cookery school, children’s garden and designated walks through the estate.
