Careers:

If you have decided hospitality is your career, consider joining The Briars and enjoy all the opportunities offered by an independent resort, spa and conference centre.

Our students are not limited to one department, and have the chance to see how the pieces come together to make the resort work.

If the time comes that you are ready to travel and work elsewhere, or if we are unable to provide the next step up, come talk to us. The Briars is a member of several hospitality associations and we can often arrange for a change to another fine establishment.

Our staff tell us that working in a family-owned resort provides them with a nice homey feeling and relationships that last a lifetime.
