A HOTEL group is preparing for a UK tourism boom.

A Lake District based hotel group is recruiting more staff as it gets ready for an economic bounce-back in the UK hospitality and tourism sector.

English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues has launched a recruitment drive with a range of new job opportunities available for both experienced hospitality professionals and those seeking to enter the industry and forge a new career.

In preparation for the full opening of its venues in Cumbria, Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa on Windermere and the Wild Boar at Crook are both seeking to fill a variety of posts, including a Chef de Partie, a restaurant manager and various front of house and support positions.

English Lakes Hotels Resorts & Venues managing director Simon Berry said: "We're optimistic that the hospitality sector will make a strong comeback post lockdown."
