Staycity To Recruit 200 Additional Employees In Second Half Of 2019
Aparthotel operator Staycity has announced that it will be recruiting 200 additional staff members, including general managers and front-of-house, sales and housekeeping staff, in the second half of 2019 as the company prepares to open new properties in Paris, Venice, Berlin, Edinburgh and Manchester.
In a statement on Staycity's website, the company's head of human resources, Ben Clayton, said, "This is our biggest intake of new staff yet. It's a huge undertaking as we have a strong culture of high service standards, so every new member of staff needs to be fully compliant with our procedures before the properties open."
Staycity’s largest property to date, Staycity Aparthotels Marne-la-Vallée, which is located close to Disneyland Paris, is scheduled to open at the beginning of August. The property will include 284 apartments, 22 holiday villas, a swimming pool, a restaurant, a Staycafé, a bar, and extensive gardens and terraces.
August will also see Staycity open a property in Venice, Mestre, that includes 175 studio and one-bed apartments. These two properties will be followed by Staycity's first property in Germany in Berlin and a 123-apartment property venue on Edinburgh's King's Stables Road, both of which will open for business by the end of the year.
Additionally, Staycity will be opening a new 224-apartment property in Manchester at the start of 2020.
