Its 88 bedrooms include duplex suites, all highlighting the originally aspects of the 1950s architecture of the iconic building. The hotel has already appointed Amy Windsor, who has over 25 years’ worth of experience in the industry, as its General Manager. She said: “As we move forward towards the opening of the hotel later this year, we are looking to appoint the head of department roles, ahead of a wider recruitment drive for the remaining vacancies at the hotel.
“We are looking for the best candidates for each role to work with us as we open what will be the finest hotel in the city, assisting us in all areas from finance and maintenance through to sales and food and beverage. “Bespoke Hotels manages more than 70 hotels with 8,000 employees, so the successful candidates will become a part of a global team, as well as a local one. “This hotel is opening at a major time in the history of the city with the national spotlight on UK City of Culture 2021. We need a top team in place now to help us to creative and exception and unique experience for the city’s visitors. “We have already had a very encouraging level of inquiries for bookings so the successful candidates will be busy getting everything ready ahead of opening later this year.”
