New hotel at Brae offers jobs

Construction on the new hotel at Brae has still to be completed, but opportunities have already arisen for would-be staff willing to help run it.

The Moorfield Hotel is advertising for a head chef, kitchen staff and various managers and assistants.

The two-and-a-half storey mid-range hotel is being built north of the Moorfield estate seven miles from Total’s new gas plant. It is scheduled to open in August.

Total has pledged to block-book all 100 rooms for the first year, and 80 rooms for the following six years, after which they will be available to the public.

The hotel will feature a gym, restaurant and bar and a meeting room. It is being developed by Glasgow-based BDL Management Ltd, which will also manage the property in a contract lasting 10 years. BDL has a portfolio of 50 hotels across the UK.

BDL says the hotel will create the equivalent of around 30 full-time jobs, plus 10 part-time housekeeping jobs.
