Hooters to host a recruitment day in Liverpool ahead of opening this Summer
1 year ago
As Liverpool prepares to open the world famous American restaurant chain, Hooters, the team behind the brand will be holding an exclusive recruitment day on the 18th August 2022.
The recruitment day will take place at the prestigious Hilton Hotel Liverpool, from 11am-6pm.
Hooters are launching their global brand in the heart of Liverpool and have a phenomenal 200 job positions available.
The sensational new site is opening this Summer in New Zealand House, located on exclusive Water Street, former home of the iconic Newz Bar.
Unbelievably, no previous experience is needed! You will be trained the ‘Hooters Way’, and get the chance to be placed on an international platform.
The role of a Hooters Girl is to be empowered and feel part of a successful team with many opportunities to participate in community events, promotions and possibly even travel to take part in the worldwide events of a global brand.
Successful members of the Hooters team will receive flexible hours, great pay and tuition reimbursement. Most of all, you’ll have some fun! Tuition reimbursement has never been done in the UK and is built on the concept that Hooters is here to support you.
With flexible hours, working at Hooters is meant to fit into your own lifestyle, offering jobs in Liverpool hospitality that will help pay for your degree and let you work your own hours. A first for the city.
All candidates will have a first round of interviews; successful applicants will be contacted to begin the required full exclusive training over a number of weeks.
The training program will be led by an exclusive and highly skilled team of internationally renowned Hooters Girls who will fly over from America to train ‘our girls’ the Hooters Way.
The training will build towards a series of soft openings at New Zealand House – before the much anticipated grand opening to the public later this summer.
Currently there are tens of thousands of Hooters staff working worldwide, with many success stories.
Chief People Officer of the brand, Cheryl Whiting Kish, originally started out as a Hooters Girl and now heads the platform for many empowering movements.
Cheryl Whiting Kish – Chief People Officer said:
“Hooters will be 40 years old in 2023. We have over 400 locations worldwide and are super excited to now be opening in the world famous city of Liverpool – known for its music, sport, people and culture.”
Cheryl, has been with Hooters nearly 30 years and she now works as the Chief People Officer, a role that focuses on Hooters’ culture and talent management strategy.
She explains that since its founding in 1983, Hooters has ‘stuck to its roots and been rewarded with 100 percent brand recognition’.
She notes that Hooters has always been committed to providing team members a clear pathway up the organisational ladder. An estimated 75 percent of the current leadership team in the US started with Hooters, and 40 percent of operations leaders are women—most of them beginning as Hooters Girls, like Whiting-Kish.
“There’s a very strong culture around training development, ensuring that we are helping people to hone the skills that they learn by working for Hooters so as they can manifest and grow into whatever and whoever they want to become. Hopefully they stay with the brand, perhaps they move on and they have other career goals, but they should be all the better for having worked for us.”
Hooters, despite a misconception in the UK, has a 41% women and children customer clientele across the globe, showing that the wholesome, glamorous cheerleader/girl-next-door brand is suitable for everyone.
Hooters is empowering and personifies an image as strong, friendly and welcoming to all.
Rachel Moss, MD of Hooters Liverpool adds:
“We are really looking forward to opening Hooters and giving the people what they want and need. Great service. A warm welcoming environment and tremendous food! Liverpool is my home city and I am very proud to be bringing such a well known international brand here.
Work has been ongoing on this project for over two years and the site is amazing. It also gives me great pride to be creating around 200 jobs, both full time and part time for local workers. We will be investing heavily in our staff from day one.”
No expense has been spared during the refurbishment of New Zealand House. From the array of high-spec video walls, 80 TV’s and a 50-metre hand-painted sky ceiling, the site is set to be something spectacular. No big sports events will ever be missed and people will never forget their first time in Hooters, Liverpool.
They’ve even added a £25k Las Vegas style themed changing rooms on site for Hooters Girls so they can be camera ready at all times…
