Employees Stories

Name and Role: Seb Milton, Property Supervisor For Red Hotels.

I joined Red Hotels in: 2012 as a Wild Café Host

And now: in August 2015 I became the Property Supervisor For Red Hotels.

My Journey with Red Hotels: Working for Red Hotels has been ineresting . The job is very challenging and extremely fulfilling. The best part of my job is definitely its variety. One moment I can be in the middle of a busy and extremely hot kitchen, fault finding and fixing a broken oven, and the next I can be working on the outdoor hot tubs in the sunshine overlooking the amazing surf on Mawgan Porth beach. 

Passions and Pleasures: Surfing and exploring the coastline with my girlfriend and dogs.

Seb Milton
Tania Clark

Name and Role: Tania Clark, Recruitment Specialist and Personal Assistant

I joined Red Hotels in: June 2006 as Events Co-ordinator.

And now: I’m a Recruitment Specialist and Personal Assistant for Red Hotels.

Passions and Pleasures: My passion is sustainability. My skills have developed and I’ve been enabled to grow in a different and exciting direction. I am proud to be part of a business that has a reputation for excellent customer service, friendliness and looking after its staff. I enjoy working with a fantastic bunch of people and always look forward to coming to work.

My Journey with Red Hotels: began with the newly-established events department, working part-time co-ordinating conferences, weddings and many other events doing administration and delivery. After five years, the department was restructured and my adaptable skills were needed elsewhere. I became PA for the Technical Services Manager (TSM) – a new and challenging role. My efficiency and organisational skills caught the eye of the General Manager (GM), to whom I became PA also.

The GM and TSM are married to each other, so mine was certainly a unique role! I now provide administration support to the Directors, as well researching and developing sustainability projects.

Name and Role: Alan Peck and I look after the Scarlet Host & Housekeeping Team

I joined Red Hotels in: October 2009 as a temping Night Host and Day Host.

And no: Since I started at the Scarlet, I’ve worked my way up from Day Host to Host & Housekeeper Manager, where I keep a close eye on standards of cleanliness, service, hospitality, recruitment and training. I’m also a member of the staff council.

Passions and Pleasures: I enjoy working with some amazing people and love helping to inspire my fellow colleagues on how we make Red Hotels even better, but I also love a bit of popular culture, art and a good movie.

My Journey with Red Hotels: So, I started as a temp and then was offered a permanent job as a Day Host. While in this position I felt that I didn’t have much in the way of guidance and leadership, so I proposed to the General Manager that we should have a Day Host Supervisor. Which turned out to be me! I worked hard though that time and started to think about a role in Housekeeping Management. I got that job, then noticed I didn’t have much in the way of support for my staff, so I proposed that I have two people under me who can help run things and keep standards while I was looking after the Day and Night Hosts. So throughout my time, my roles have changed so much but during this journey I was fast tracked onto an in-house program – Future Leaders – to give me the training I needed to become what I am today! I was also a runner up in the AA hospitality awards, 55 other housekeepers entered and I got Silver! The selfie with Fiona Bruce was the cherry on the cake!!

Name and Role: Jordan Roberts, Digital Marketing Assistant

I joined Red Hotels in: March 2013 as a Sales Executive

And now: I work within the Marketing Team for both hotels as a Digital Marketing Assistant.

Passions and Pleasures: The business is very fluid and constantly evolving. You’re not just marketing the hotel, there are lots of different events happening and the directors are really approachable and friendly, unlike a lot of other businesses.

My Journey with Red Hotels: After joining Red Hotels in March 2013 in the Sales Team, I knew after 6 months that I wanted a new challenge within the business and management could also see this. So, I began attending several different trade shows for Bedruthan and promoted the hotels at shows such as the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham. After working as a Sales Executive for around a year, a new position became available within the Create Cornwall team, the position was for an Online Project Leader. Create Cornwall is an online and physical design store selling home wares. My role with Create was to keep the website stock updated, add new products and generally promote the business to increase online sales. Once I had worked in the Create Team for a year, I was offered yet another position at Red Hotels. This was the biggest and most important move for me, as it was into the Marketing Team and the role that I had originally applied for two years ago.

I’ve been in the Marketing team since January 2015 and absolutely love it. Marketing was my favourite module at university. My duties mainly include creating content for social media, Facebook adverts, SEO & general brand awareness.

Name and Role: Ben Southgate, Deputy Hotel Manager at Bedruthan

I joined Red Hotels in July 2001, and again in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009.

And now. Since August 2014, I’ve been the Food & Beverage Manager for Bedruthan. I’m a graduate of Red Hotels’ first Future Leader group. I feel I’ve got a special relationship with the hotel, as I feel I have grown up as a person here.

Passions and Pleasures: You have to enjoy what you do, and I love the different people I have met and worked with over the years. I love picking up new skills, developing our product and sharing laughter with the odd bit of fun to keep a smile on people’s faces.

Ben Southgate

My Journey with Red Hotels: I arrived at the back door of the kitchen on the first day of my two week holiday in 2001 and asked for a job for the Summer. I started as a Commis Chef with no experience and stayed for two years.

I started to come for the Summers and leave in the Winters for a while, each time returning in a slightly more advanced role. In 2008, I decided to take a year out and moved to Spain, but in 2009 I was asked to help cover a friend’s holiday for a few weeks and that soon became months.  In 2010, I took the role of Acting Head Chef and did this for the year before completing Red Hotels’ Future Leaders program and moving to Restaurant Manager of the Wild Café. After three years, I became Food & Beverage Manager for Bedruthan, overseeing the Wild Café, The Cocktail Bar, The Herring and The Lanai.

Rachel Carter

Name and Role: Rachel Carter, Relief Manager for Red Hotels

I joined Red Hotels on: 1st May 2013 as a Restaurant Supervisor at Bedruthan Hotel.

And now: on 1st May 2014, I became a Wellbeing Host, which was a duty manager role and since Jan 2015 I’ve been a Relief Manager covering any role in the Scarlet and Bedruthan hotels

Passions and Pleasures: I love people and working with extraordinary individuals. Here at Red Hotels, I have the opportunity to do just that!

My Journey with Red Hotels: I applied for a job at Red Hotels because I loved the ethos. They genuinely care about people and the planet we live on, and I love that I can truly be myself within the company, as the whole corporate suit-wearing environment is not for me.

After working as a Restaurant Supervisor for a year, I applied for the role of Seasonal Wellbeing Host, then Relief Manager. I am constantly moving between hotels and different departments. My role is very versatile, I feel lucky on a daily basis that I love all my fellow employees and my superiors. It’s a really amazing environment to work in.
