The White Swan in Alnwick, a hotel of the Classic Lodges chain, has appointed local girl and long-term employee, Louise Swordy as Food and Beverage Manager.
Aged just 22, Louise has had a long career working at the Hotel, an old coaching inn, initially starting as a waitress aged 17.
With a long and profound interest in the hospitality industry, she has successfully progressed with Classic Lodges after being promoted to Supervisor, and is now proudly enjoying her new managerial role with the help of in-house training.
Her new position has given her more responsibility within the business and the general overseeing the food and beverages service at Hardy’s Bistro, the more casual dining offering adjacent to The White Swan.
Louise is keen to strengthen staff morale: “My aim is to maintain the smooth running of the restaurant, which I believe can be achieved through encouraging a positive working atmosphere with motivational targets.”
She has settled well into the new role: “Having worked at The White Swan for a while has helped me to feel really at home with my new role and my fellow colleagues,” she says. “I’m looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.”
General Manager for The White Swan, James Thompson, believes Louise’s experience with the company will be an invaluable addition: “We are very happy to have Louise in her new managerial position, she has excelled in her training and is proving to be a fantastic asset to the company.”
