A HOLIDAY cottage company is forecasting a big wave of hiring for its Chester base.
Sykes Holiday Cottages is looking to hire over 100 coworkers by Christmas.
The vacation home rental agency, which currently has over 800 employees, is looking for people of all experience levels to fill a variety of roles at its headquarters in One City Place near Chester Station.
This includes new roles within its technical, marketing, finance and customer relations teams, with salaries of up to £ 55,000 per year.
The recruitment drive is part of Sykes’ rapid expansion in recent years, with the company now serving more than two million vacationers per year across its growing portfolio of 20,000 properties in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand. .
Graham Donoghue, CEO of Sykes Holiday Cottages, said: “As we continue to grow as a business, attracting new owners and welcoming more vacationers than ever before, we are looking for new hires to join our amazing team.
“With a range of programs offered to foster a healthy work-life balance, including team building activities, wellness workshops and an internal advisor, we strive to ensure that Sykes remains a amazing workplace. ”
The company, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this year, was named one of the Sunday Times’ Northwest 75 Best Companies to Work for.
The fast-growing tech company also made it to the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 list last year, which celebrates and showcases the success of Britain’s fastest growing private companies.
Mr. Donoghue added: “What our incredible team at Sykes have accomplished together over the past year, despite the challenges they have faced, is simply amazing and I am very proud of each of them. But the future is even more exciting and we look forward to welcoming new colleagues who will join us for the ride. ”
