Travelodge will be offering 500 management apprenticeships as part of it’s JuMP (Junior Management Programme) scheme and aims to provide a fast track route into management for A-level students.
The scheme, has been developed to support Travelodge’s aggrestive growth strategy and offers school leavers a real alternative to going to university with the opportunity to continue their education, obtain work experience, receive a salary and become a manager by the age of 21.
Guy Parsons, Travelodge CEO commented: “Our nationwide JuMP programme offers school leavers an alternative career choice, to going to university… and the opportunity to earn up to £30,000. In contrast to going to university and graduating with a debt of £43,224 and facing an over crowded jobs market.
Travelodge is the UK’s fastest growing hotel brand and we have an aggressive growth target to have 1,100 hotels by 2025. To fuel this strategy, our JuMP programme will provide a pipeline of new management talent and I am aiming that forty fifty per cent of our new hotels will be managed by our Travelodge apprentices by 2015.”
