Grantley Hall on the hunt for 200 staff members ahead of June opening


Grade-II listed Grantley Hall is on the hunt for 200 full-time staff members to equip the property when it opens its doors in June.

The 17th century building is owned by Valeria Sykes and has been undergoing a multi-million transformation process into a new luxury 47-bedroom hotel since 2015.

The hotel will also be home to seven drinking and dining venues, including a pan-Asian restaurant, Champagne and cocktail bar, plus a spa and a number of event spaces.

Acclaimed chef Shaun Rankin is to head up the hotel’s fine dining restaurant.

Now the hotel is recruiting employees to work in all disciplines, including front of house, the gardens, ELITE, Three Graces Spa, housekeeping, food and beverage and facilities.

Speaking to Darlington and Stockton Times, director of HR, Samantha Fearnley, says: “We are looking to bring in 200 full-time, permanent members of staff, as well as a number of casual employees, so this is a really great boost for the local area.

“From the very beginning, Grantley Hall has set out to be a leading organisation in the UK hospitality industry, providing a premium experience for its customers. To do this, however, we need the very best of employees.

“We are interviewing from all over the North-East, Teesside, and North and West Yorkshire, for what promises to be a fantastic chance to join a great team working in an amazing environment.”

Grantley Hall has its own dedicated training facility on the estate – Grantley Academy – and offers on-the job-training, personal development, coaching and mentoring, managerial and supervisory training, coupled with professional qualifications specific to each individual’s requirements.

Owner Sykes is overseeing the development, with general manager Andrew McPherson.
