Manchester and North West region

Manchester & North West

The region was founded 20 years ago and was successfully relaunched in February 2010. The Manchester and North West meetings are a great way for all Housekeepers in the area to get to know each other, share best practice and exchange information and ideas. Our main goals are to improve the professional standing of housekeepers, promote housekeeping as a career and re-introduce housekeeping training programmes to colleagues. 

Meetings are held bi-monthly in different hotels across Manchester, and surrounding areas, where guest speakers from different sectors talk about topics relevant to housekeeping and the hospitality sector. There are also opportunities to attend social events throughout the year.

If you would like more information and to be part of our region please email Nan McDowell.
