Hotel operator embarks on recruitment drive for 220 jobs ahead of 2023 opening

Treehouse Hotel Manchester is to create 220 jobs ahead of its opening early next year.

The company, part of SH Hotels & Resorts, said the job opportunities include 35 roles and six departments, as part of its Let’s Grow Together campaign to welcome its staff to “a warm and familiar oasis, with an adventure-loving and community-focused approach”.

The vacancies range across front office attendants, housekeeping, banqueting and more, plus, vacancies across the rooftop bar The Nest, the 14th floor restaurant and bar by chef Sam Grainger, restaurateur Luke Cowdrey and Justin Crawford, and the ground-floor all-day dining space by chef Mary-Ellen McTague. Roles in these departments include chefs, waiters, hosts, bartenders, serving teams and more.

Jules Furnival, people operations manager, Treehouse Hotel Manchester, said: “We look forward to growing the Treehouse family here in Manchester.

“This is a unique opportunity in the city for those in hospitality and leisure to finally find what they have been searching for. I feel truly lucky to be a part of such a diverse and people-focused company, and I cannot wait to welcome our teams, so they can experience the wonder that is Treehouse with us.”

Treehouse said it welcomes applications from the wider workforce in and around Manchester to grow a diverse and inclusive staff, including those who are looking for a career change from other industries.

Treehouse was confirmed as the hotel operator for the Renaissance site on Manchester’s Deansgate, in May, 2021.

The hotel forms part of the first phase of a £200m redevelopment, which is being brought forward by a Starwood Capital and Property Alliance Group JV.

Alex Russell, managing director, Property Alliance Group, said at the time: “We’re absolutely delighted to be bringing Treehouse, one of the most exciting global hotel brands, to Manchester, which will be their second UK location after London.

“The brand will inject much needed life and personality into this prominent landmark site, changing the perception of the building and driving footfall and activity to the area.

“We’re redeveloping the original hotel tower instead of demolishing and rebuilding, spending £25m to transform it.

“This will result in significant environmental benefits, generating around 40% less CO2 compared to constructing a new-build hotel of the same size.

He added: “Treehouse is a brand that is rooted in sustainability which ticks all of the boxes for our vision for the site.”
