At Swindon Borough Council, we want our town to be the best it can be. Our ambitious vision is supported by realistic transformation programmes, with the people of Swindon at their heart. Because that’s who we’re doing it for – the communities and businesses that make our town great. As part of the Council, you’ll support a friendly local authority making decisions with real impact. It’s all for better public services. Better processes. And a better quality of life, for everyone. Join us, and Swindon will be better with you.

We are looking for Housekeepers to join our team at the newly refurbished Lydiard House Hotel. Under the guidance of the managing staff, you will provide a quality guest experience to all users of our facility.

We will also accept applications from those looking to work weekends only, 9am to 2pm. 

These are ongoing temporary positions with opportunities to go permanent, we will consider students or those looking for summer work.

In addition, we have opportunities for Bar staff and Reception work, again working shift patterns, usually 9am-4pm or 6pm-10pm to cover events.

Candidates must be fluent in the English language, (as a requirement of part 7 of the immigration act) for the effective performance of a customer facing role.

For Swindon to thrive in the future, we need to lay the foundations now. It’s why our regeneration and transformation programmes are already underway. So, you’ll be joining us at an exciting time on our journey. We’ll look to you to share your knowledge, influence decisions and drive real, positive change. With your contributions, we’ll achieve our vision of a prosperous, re-vitalised Swindon by 2030 together. And you’ll be proud to say it was made better with you.
