    8 must-know hotel hacks for your next business trip

    If you travel regularly for business, chances are you've already found a few of your own hotel hacks to get the most from your room whilst away. And you've probably even got a case pre-packed with essentials, on standby and ready to go at a moment's notice to cut down on the time you spend unpacking and re-packing (and unpacking, and re-packing, and unpacking...).

LateRooms.com – Why Work For Us?


At LateRooms.com we’re all about making your events and occasions happen – bringing moments to life.

Because as the UK’s leading hotel booking specialist, we’re behind all kinds of meaningful moments.

We make family get togethers great, football away trips a blast, important business trips a breeze…

After all, no one ever booked a hotel without a reason. 

So whatever that reason is, we make it happen.

We’re a leading digital business used by millions of people every day looking for that ideal stay. We know hotels inside out, and are just as tuned into why our bookers are going away as we are to where they stay. 

A little bit of LateRooms.com history

LateRooms.com was born in Salford, Greater Manchester in 1999, starting life as an 'on the day for the day' booking site for unsold rooms. By 2007 we had joined the world's leading leisure travel group, TUI Travel PLC. We're still loving life here in Manchester today, now offering over 65,000 properties worldwide with more UK hotels than anybody else.

And these days you can still book on the day of your stay, naturally, but also up to a whole year in advance - to make things nice and flexible for you.

Oh, and we've picked up some lovely awards along the way...

Our passion

Understanding hotels inside out – and being just as tuned into why our bookers are going away as we are to where they stay - means knowing what’s going on, where and when. Staying up-to-date. In the know.

So we’re always looking for switched-on, creative folk to join us here in Manchester.

Talented, innovative and fun-loving people who are ready to dive straight in and help keep us in tune, on our toes and moving leaps and bounds in the hotel and travel industry. 

 

Our People

We’re thinkers, doers and innovators; challengers, supporters and motivators; travellers, laughers, sometimes even dancers (if you catch us on a Friday night!).


Our Place

Our swanky, eco-friendly office is just 22.57 seconds from Manchester Arena (yep, we’ve timed it), with 360° views over Manchester (and erm… Strangeways).

Think you can make it happen for us? Then take a look at careers.laterooms.com or get in touch and say hello.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at LateRooms.com (Manchester City Centre, England) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The process itself was very casual phone call followed by face to face interview. The original screener felt like it was there to gauge my understanding and perspective within the discipline. The face to face was more competence focused.
