Careers at The Bedford Hotel

We’re a busy team here at The Bedford Hotel in the heart of Tavistock, and we are always on the look-out for new team-players who share our passion for great customer service, fabulous surroundings, hard work, and a little fun! We are open every day of the year, from early until late, so you’ll need to be flexible and have reliable transport (unless you live within easy walking distance, or the vacancy is advertised as having live-in accommodation available). In return, we offer competitive rates of pay, and meals whilst on duty.

You’ll be working with the best local ingredients, in a positive working environment, with lots of opportunity to demonstrate your creativity and to further develop your skills and experience.
