Rockliffe Hall has welcomed three new apprentices to its team after being ‘inundated’ with applications for the new opportunities.
The five star resort in Hurworth, near Darlington, was on the hunt for people to fill marketing, IT and beauty therapist apprenticeships.
Stephen Flintoft, 20, from Darlington, has joined Rockliffe Hall as digital marketing and social media apprentice.
Andrew Jennison, 19, from Bishop Auckland, is the resort’s IT apprentice. He studied IT and Photography A Level at King James Academy.
Grace Nash, 17, from Richmond, has joined the Spa Team as a beauty therapy apprentice.
Angela Doran, human resources manager at Rockliffe Hall, says: “At Rockliffe Hall it is very important for us to invest in the next generation, our future successors. Hospitality is such a diverse industry with such a vast array of fulfilling career opportunities. When we decide on an apprenticeship opportunity we have a great wealth of interest in positions. Stephen, Andrew and Grace stood out during the selection process and we hope they make the most out of the opportunity and time with us here at the resort.”
In July last year, Rockliffe Hall unveiled its new Alice in Wonderland inspired play area, Mischmasch. Plans were first revealed for the new space in 2017 with an investment of £750k set aside for the new venture.
Rockliffe Hall is also home to a £1m spa garden, 18-hole championship golf course, 4 AA Rosette The Orangery restaurant, plus 61 bedrooms.
