Low cost hotel chain Travelodge has announced plans to open 20 new sites throughout 2018 and create 550 new jobs. The plans include the opening of a new London City flagship hotel. Jobs will be created at all levels of the business including receptionists, housekeepers, cleaners and managerial roles. The company does operate its own training and promotions policy meaning that people can be appointed at entry level positions and then rise through the business. The jobs are currently being advertised via the company's website.

In March and in May 2017, the Group announced the creation of 325 and 700new jobs respectively in the UK.
