Recruitment Day

In partnership with Liverpool City College, Signature Living held an apprentice open day at the LEX centre on the 4TH April.

As Signature Living is Liverpool’s largest accommodation provider, there are various departments looking to begin new Liverpool apprenticeship programmes for 2017.

There are roles available in departments such as;

What’s more, two of these hotels have their own amazing conference and events spaces that can cater to special events such as weddings, special birthday celebrations, VIP events and so much more.

Representatives from each of the departments with apprenticeship programme vacancies were out to meet lucky individuals hoping to start their Liverpool apprenticeship. A group of worthy candidates who were pre-selected by Liverpool City College were then interviewed by department representatives. All in all the recruitment day was a success and our team met with plenty of enthusiastic young people, keen to learn and develop skills within the leisure industry with Signature Living.
