Give us a brief summary of your current role at Atlas Hotels
I started my career with Atlas Hotels back in 2008 as a Breakfast Assistant at Holiday Inn Express Bristol Filton. After around 3 months, I was promoted to Team Member day and worked in this role for around 2 years. I was then promoted to Nights Team Leader, and after working nights for a couple of years, I moved to day shifts. In 2015, I was promoted to Deputy General Manager under a Dual Site General Manager, and after 3 years in that role, I was then promoted to Hotel Operations Manager as part of the first Cluster within Atlas Hotels. In March 2020 I left Bristol Filton for our hotel in Bath, where I currently work as Hotel Operations Manager.
In my own experience, Atlas Hotels truly does believe in “growing its own”. The time and training invested in developing me as a leader has been phenomenal, and I look forward to continuing my journey with Atlas Hotels.
