InterContinental hotel chain offers jobs to war veterans
Wednesday 08 August 2012
A leading hotel chain is to create 180 jobs by opening a new site in a former government building, and will offer employment opportunities to British war veterans.
InterContinental will open its first hotel in London for more than 36 years at an address in Westminster.
The 256-room hotel, which will open in November, is close to the Houses of Parliament.
InterContinental has formed a partnership with the charity Soldier On! and will offer jobs to former members of the armed forces.
Andrew Coney, general manager of InterContinental London Westminster, said: "We are extremely proud to be partnering with Soldier On!.
"The focus and drive of experienced veterans will be a huge asset to our team, and we too will benefit from the skills and qualifications they've acquired through years of service.
"We anticipate that they will set a fine example in our industry."
