The Basics

Sylvia will consider CV's emailed to her at sylvia.back@carfaxhotel.co.uk, but our head office requires us to complete the form at some stage - don't be put off by it, just fill it in carefully.
Due to the often large number of applications, Sylvia regrets that she is unable to respond to every applicant, so if you haven't heard from her within 7 days you have not been short-listed for the job. She may keep your application on file for future use and contact you if necessary.

Getting the Job Pack

You will need these two programs installed on your computer to open and print the files (most libraries, job centres and colleges have these). You may also have to bypass anti-virus software messages in order to open or save them. If you have any problems viewing and printing the files telephone the Carfax Hotel Reception desk on 01225 425373 and ask them to post you the job application pack for the job you're interested in. Please do not do this unless you have to, and don't ask the receptionists about the jobs as you'll be holding up our main sales line and they can't tell you any more than job pack! Just tell them as quickly as possible the name of the job, your name and address, and a contact telephone number and email address.

Why Work at the Carfax?
The Carfax is a long establish hotel with a great track record of playing fair by both staff and guests. Unlike many chain hotels where the staff are treated poorly and the guests get a raw deal, we aim to get the balance right between hard work and time off, fair tariffs for guests and fair wages for staff, and most importantly we are small, friendly, team who are proud of the quality of the service and accommodation we provide. Check out our impartial reviews from guests who have stayed here - we are one of the best hotels in Bath, not cheap, not pricey, but good...even if I do say myself!
Booking.com Reviews   Trip Advisor Reviews
The hotel follows a National salary scale, has a comprehensive Employment Handbook, has options for an occupational pension scheme, observes all current employment legislation, and enjoys staff room facilities onsite. Some of our staff like it so much they have worked here for over 20 years, so we must be doing something right - anyway, enough hard sell, it's a great place to work full stop!
