INTERNATIONAL hotel chain Marriott has struck a deal with JobCentre Plus which will lead to the company offering a number of jobs to long-term unemployed workers in the UK.

The terms of the Local Employment Partnership (LEP) stipulate that Marriott shall try to fill 20 per cent of entry-level vacancies with workers sourced through the scheme, while the company has also agreed to trial periods, mentoring and pre-employment training for each staff member recruited through the LEP.

Marriott aims to roll out LEPs across its entire UK property portfolio of 55 hotels - which employ around 10,000 staff across the country.

The scheme will help the company fill roles ranging from cleaning and room attendants to catering operations.
