We also firmly believe in equipping our staff to be the best they can be and provide an extensive range of training in a wide range of skills areas.

Our senior Business Development Manager, Hayley Hardy, started her Imago journey back in 2005 at Burleigh Court Conference Centre and Hotel as a Restaurant Waitress. She then progressed to working as a Receptionist at Burleigh Court, Holywell Park Conference Centre and The Link Hotel before taking a maternity cover post in the Reservations team. Having become a firm fixture in the Sales Office, she then moved across the corridor to become a business enquiry handler and quickly worked her way up the ladder to become part of the Business Development team. She then had the opportunity to take on the role of Revenue Manager on a maternity cover before returning to the business development team with her promotion to Senior Business Development Manager. Her role is all about bringing business in to the company, cultivating relationships and delivering great experiences to our clients. So, with such a broad wealth of experience from across all aspects of the business, Hayley is brilliantly placed to understand the needs of both the client and the operational teams and deliver better results.
Hayley’s story is by no means unique and it’s this kind of staff progression that ultimately makes us a stronger team, capable of truly great things.
We look for dynamic, committed and enthusiastic people to join our team and become advocates of our award-winning portfolio of venues. We are proud holders of an Investors in People Platinum Award and you could become one of our most important assets!
