Serviced apartments giant Staycity, which caters for short- and long-stay travellers, is creating 200 jobs across Europe.

The roles are being developed as the Dublin-headquartered company gears up for a record number of property openings in the second half of this year.

Four properties will join the group’s portfolio before the end of this year, with recruitment drives already underway for general manager, front-of-house, sales and housekeeping positions based in Paris, Venice, Edinburgh and Berlin.

“This is our biggest intake of new staff yet,” Staycity’s head of human resources, Ben Clayton, said.

“It’s a huge undertaking as we have a strong culture of high service standards so every new member of staff needs to be fully compliant with our procedures before the properties open."

Opening at the beginning of August will be Staycity’s largest property to date, Staycity Aparthotels Marne-la-Vallée, which is a 10-minute walk from Disneyland Paris. Facilities include 284 apartments, 22 holiday villas, a swimming pool, restaurant, Staycafé, bar and extensive gardens and terraces.

Founded in 2004 by bothers Tom and Ger Walsh, the company now has over 7,000 apartments across 10 European cities with plans to operate 15,000 by 2023.
