Radisson Edwardian is highly regarded by the hospitality industry for its commitment to employee development. Every member of staff has a clear career track incorporating practical front line skills alongside management and professional competence. The company offers a range of training opportunities from on- and off-the job to foundation degrees and management programmes.

Speaking about the recruitment opportunities, Peter Wardley said, “At Radisson Edwardian we are committed to finding, training and retaining the best staff and we expect to find many of these within the Guildford and wider Surrey communities. We are looking for individuals who share our passion for great service, but whose local knowledge will mean the difference between a good experience and a great experience to our guests.”
