Careers at The Fishpool Inn

Build your career in the hotel and hospitality industry with Nelson Hotels.

We’re always looking for motivated people with a passion for good food and service, be it in the kitchen, front of house or housekeeping. Experience isn’t always necessary, but a desire to learn, dedication and enthusiasm for what you do are essential.

We’re looking for people who share the same enthusiasm about the hospitality industry and are willing to go that extra-mile to make sure every guest leaves our locations wishing they didn’t have to! If this is the way you tick, we’re quite sure we’ll click and support you to your full potential.

Throughout all of our different departments, there are a whole range of managerial roles carrying all levels of responsibility. The most important factor in progressing to this level is that you love what you do! So if you are applying for a front of house position we’d expect that you love locally produced, quality food and know your beverages inside out. Most importantly you must have the passion to make every customers visit a happy one.

All managerial roles require leadership skills and the ability to maintain a happy enjoyable working environment for all your team. The right candidate needs to be efficient, meet targets and run your operation effectively. You’ll need the skills to work autonomously and make decisions on your own, but we’ll be there to advise and support as and when needed.

We offer good rates of pay, from supervisors on £14,000£16,000, deputies on £16,000£25,000 and managers on £25,000£45,000. As well as working alongside some fantastic people, there are also other great benefits including:

  • Complimentary leisure membership
  • Accommodation for managers,
  • A company pension scheme,
  • Ongoing training

If your talent lies in the kitchen, there’s a fantastic team already in place which you can become a part of. We take on chefs of all levels and love nothing more than developing existing members of our team and watching them grow. We also work closely with the local colleges and have many junior chefs who we sponsor through college on a weekly day release.

We are constantly investing in our kitchens to ensure you are working with the best tools available and that the environment in which you work is a happy one. In fact all of our kitchens have air conditioning so there’s none of that ‘sweating over a hot stove!’

We offer great packages for all of our chefs which include accommodation, company pension schemes, decent holidays, and of course a great team to work within.

If you’re looking for casual work, look no further. Every department within our operation has casual staff and we couldn’t do without them. So if you have commitments elsewhere or are simply looking for a bit of weekend or evening work, we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
