One of Worcestershire’s top hotels, The Wood Norton, has announced the appointment of two new young team members in a bid to grow the boutique even further.
The hotel has welcomed Aimee White as wedding and events co-ordinator and Josh Perry as junior operations manager as demand for the property continues to rise.
White joined The Wood Norton 12 months ago to undertake an apprenticeship in sales, and as part of this year-long programme, supported the hotel’s weddings team in selling, planning and co-ordinating over 80 weddings.
When the apprenticeship was completed in August, White was offered a full-time position to be part of the weddings team.
Perry joined The Wood Norton 18 months ago as a waiter in the hotel’s restaurant, the Fleur de Lys and now aged just 19 has been promoted to junior operations manager.
Steve Sweeny, general manager of The Wood Norton, said: “Aimee and Josh are passionate, dedicated and hardworking individuals who boast genuine enthusiasm for the hospitality sector. Both of them have really impressed the management team over the past year or so, and as a result I am delighted to welcome Aimee on board as a full time member of the team and provide Josh with the promotion he so much deserves.”
The Wood Norton re-opened in late 2012 following an extensive £10m refurbishment programme – with its most recent development being the transformation of its old Kitchen into the ‘Fleur de Sel’, a new Brasserie-come-corporate-meeting space.
In 2017, The Wood Norton is forecast to host over 100 weddings in 2017.
