Galgorm Hotel Group recruiting for 180 new jobs

The Galgorm Collection hospitality chain has launched a new recruitment drive to expand its workforce by 25%.

It will recruit 180 people across its four establishments in Ballymena, Belfast and Templepatrick.

The announcement comes ahead of the reopening of the hospitality sector which has been one of the hardest hit during the pandemic.

From chefs to bar tenders, spa therapists and managers, to facilities staff, housekeepers, drivers and night porters, the company behind the world renowned Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort said the roles will help to meet anticipated demand when the hospitality sector reopens in the coming months.

In Belfast, 60 new team members will join Galgorm’s two city centre restaurants, the iconic Café Parisien located in the former Robinson & Cleaver building, offering unrivalled views of Belfast City hall, and family favourite Fratelli’s restaurant located in Great Victoria Street. The new roles include a mix of chefs, servers and food and beverage managers.

An additional 26 team members will be recruited to support the opening of Galgorm Collection’s newest venture, The Rabbit Hotel, located in Templepatrick. With a planned June opening, the new roles span across the hotel’s front of house and accommodation offering as well as roles
