Assessments for roles at Travelodge are likely to consist of a combination of the following:

Telephone interview: Where a member of the Resourcing Team calls you to discuss the role, your skills and experience. If successful you'll be invited through to next stage or contacted to let you know if you've unsuccessful this time.

Competency based interviews: Which include both technical and behavioural questions which reflect the skills required in the role and the Travelodge Behaviours. You'll be expected to draw on your previous experience to demonstrate your ability to take on the role.

Case studies and presentations: For some roles, you may be asked to prepare a presentation prior to the selection day/interview. Make sure you're comfortable with the brief and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Testing: For some positions within Travelodge, the selection process may also include some form of psychometric testing.
