The infrastructure work at Growth Point is going to open up this area for business and leisure and with Exeter International Airport's plans for growth will help bring in more business and tourism.

"We are looking for people who know and love the area to give the hotel and restaurant that special Exeter spirit. We want our staff's personalities to make guest's visits memorable.

"The hotel and restaurant are expected to be a big draw to the area, so if you think you have what it takes to work in a busy environment, pop down and see us and show us what you can offer."
