Manchester hotel

Signature Living Submits Plans for Our First Manchester Hotel

Signature Living is expanding quickly, with hotels already in development in some of the most exciting towns in the UK, and now we’re turning our attention to one of the North’s most influential cities to create our first Manchester hotel.

The Plans for Our Manchester Hotel

In partnership with fellow Liverpool-based property developer Iliad Group, we have just submitted the planning application to turn the former Commercial Hotel in Castlefield into a 39 room development.

The buildings, 123-125 Liverpool Road, are both grade II listed buildings and we plan to continue our ethos of transforming protected buildings into luxury hotels and developments that people of the city can enjoy.

Manchester Hotel

Tim Groom Architects

Our Manchester hotel will be no different. Although the proposed plans request to demolish some features, these features are not part of the original building. The protected building will be carefully and sensitively restored to make the Manchester hotel a beacon for tourism in the area.

Developing in Manchester

Creating a Manchester hotel has always been a dream of Signature Living’s, as an important city in the north and a hub of tourist activity, it was only logical that we’d eventually bring our unique flair to the city.

Castlefield, in the south-west of the city centre, is the industrial heart of Manchester that has been transformed into a trendy and attractive area.

Being close to Deansgate and within easy reach of all the shopping and nightlife on offer, it makes the perfect location for our very first Manchester Hotel.

Residential Accommodation in Manchester

Earlier this year, we also submitted plans for our first residential development outside of Liverpool, at Victoria Mill in the thriving Miles Platting area.

Featuring one and two-bed apartments with the signature touch throughout, with residents benefitting from a 24-hour concierge service and with great transport links to the city centre.

Experts in Restoring Listed Buildings

Manchester Hotel

This isn’t the first time we’ve taken on the task of restoring a listed building to its former glory. 30 James Street in Liverpool, the former home of White Star Line’s headquarters, was a shadow of its former self and now stand proud once again as one of the most beautiful buildings on Liverpool’s waterfront.

We also took on the mammoth task of transforming The Coal Exchange in Cardiff, the building was in a desperate state after being left to rot. It is now the premier destination for a luxury stay in the city after Signature Living lovingly restored it into The Exchange Hotel.

Manchester Hotel Job Opportunities

The plans are still in the early stages of development, but we pride ourselves on the people that help to make our guest’s experience truly unforgettable.

The Manchester hotel will create plenty of jobs in Manchester. With an internal construction team, service staff, waiting on staff, bartenders and porters all paramount to the successful running.

Hospitality Recruitment Day at The Exchange Hotel

The Exchange Hotel is on the lookout for some of the best people in hospitality and catering to join us at our in-house restaurant.

The luxury heritage hotel in Cardiff has triumphed as one of the best places to visit in Cardiff.

Since our opening earlier this year, the former Coal Exchange has gone from strength to strength and November sees the launch of our restaurant’s new home.

While Culley’s has been dishing up some of the best food in Cardiff for the past few months, the final piece of the puzzle is in place and the official restaurant will soon be opening.

On the Hunt for Signature Stars

hospitality recruitment

The big move for Culley’s means we’re now recruiting for even more staff to join the incredible hospitality team at The Exchange Hotel.

We pride ourselves on putting our visitors above everything else, and all of our service roles are filled with driven and talented people who help us to deliver the outstanding service that’s expected from The Exchange Hotel.

We need a full team to be able to continue giving customers the best experience of their life while staying with us in Cardiff. Waiting on staff, mixologists, front of house and conference & banqueting staff are all an integral part of making sure we maintain our high standard of customer satisfaction.

Hospitality Recruitment Assessment Centre

Following the success of our previous hospitality recruitment days, this week, we hosted Cardiff’s first ever assessment centre at The Exchange Hotel

More than 40 hopefuls attended the two-hour long session to get to know the hotel and to see if a place on the hospitality team at the Exchange Hotel would be a good fit for them.

The day was a chance for us to get to know the hopeful candidates and for them to get to know us as a brand, a company and a hotel.

It’s also really important that everyone who comes on board understands the importance of the Signature DNA and what it means to work at one of our iconic heritage sites.

Like with previous assessment centres, the attendees were tasked with creating a mood board that represented Cardiff as a tourist destination and how The Exchange Hotel fits into the city. The teams had to create their board using newspaper and magazine cutouts to make something beautiful about their city.

Then came Pictionary, a favourite for everyone. The fun but challenging game helped establish everyone’s communication skills and helped to demonstrate the importance of clear communication.

The Future of Recruitment at The Exchange Hotel

hospitality recruitment

While it may be easy to assume that The Exchange Hotel is well-established and an imperative part of Cardiff’s culture, thanks to the premium service and beautiful restoration, the hotel has been open less than 12 months and is only the beacon of quality it is today thanks to the incredible staff that work hard to make it so.

We’re always on the lookout for the best of the best and the management staff in Cardiff are set to host even more recruitment days over the coming months as the hotel expands.

Liverpool Hospitality Recruitment

Signature’s Recruitment Team Comes Together for Hospitality Recruitment Drive

Signature Group’s brand new recruitment team got together this week to host another exceptional recruitment day, this time to seek out the best hospitality stars.

Louise Riley, recruitment manager, introduced hopeful candidates to the newly formed team, Rachel Higham and Michael McGurk and together they led a packed out room through a series of challenges and tasks.

Hospitality and great customer service are at the heart of everything we do at Signature. We pride ourselves on putting our visitors above everything else and consider ourselves to be a customer service company before being a hospitality company.

It’s for this reason that our front of house and customer facing roles are filled by only the best and the most outstanding people. From the people who greet hotel guests to the people who serve diners, each and every hospitality staff member has the Signature DNA ingrained in them and they’re proud to wear that DNA on their sleeve.

An Exciting Day of Tasks and Challenges

This week’s assessment centre recruitment day was our busiest one to date, with applicants from all walks of life and all across Merseyside hoping to fill the positions at our new culinary venture.

Joining the new recruitment team were Carpathia’s (30 James Street’s amazing rooftop dining experience) restaurant manager and bar manager, Tom Barrie and Stephen Pickup. Carpathia Champagne Bar & Restaurant is renowned for its impeccable service and dedicated staff, so it made sense that the driving force behind the hospitality beacon would help on the day.

The day began with a series of ice-breakers to help everyone get comfortable and introduce themselves to the group, including letting everyone know what they wanted to be when they grew up. There were some interesting answers, namely someone aspiring to be a monkey and someone pursuing a career as Disney princess.

A firm favourite at the assessment centre is the creation of mood boards by the potential recruits, helping them to explore what they think represents Signature Group. It’s a great way to discover how much the applicants know about the company and whether they are suitable to blend in with the Signature DNA.

Making quick decisions and thinking on your feet is a key part of a hospitality role. In all our dining establishments, there’s a quick-paced atmosphere that keeps you on your toes and deciding the best course of action is a necessity. The lifeboat task is designed to test out these skills by proposing a list of people and asking candidates to choose a small number to save on the last lifeboat leaving a sinking ship.

The most exciting addition to the recruitment day was the connection web. This was an immersive team building exercise that required everyone to find something in common with someone else in the group. Once a connection was found with the first person, a ball of string was tossed to the person who had the connection. This created a physical web of similarities between the large group. When recruitment officer Michael tossed a ball into the web, it fell through to the floor, signifying that while the group were getting to know each other and finding similarities, more needed to be discovered.

Hospitality Key Skills

Liverpool Hospitality recruitment

Signature Group is proud of its reputation of delivering high-standard customer care to everyone who visits our venues. Hospitality is the key to building a relationship with customers and ensuring that they leave us with a smile on their face and a brilliant memory of their time with us.
