Apprenticeships call for iconic Cavern Walks hotel development

North West business leader Craig Greenwood is offering 20 paid apprenticeships at his Cavern Walks Hotel site in Liverpool City Centre.

The venue, purchased in 2022 by Greenwood Developments, will occupy the upper floors of the shopping centre, previously rented as office space.

Greenwood has been granted permission for more than 125 rooms, spanning 300 beds over seven floors, as well as a large function space, bar and cinema room. The Cavern Walks Hotel will have a gross development value over £35m when completed.

There will be a number of homages to The Beatles, including themed rooms, as well as a NEMS record store in a nod to Brian Epstein. The cinema room will also be decked in all white in tribute to John Lennon.

The project at Cavern Walks is underway, but Greenwood is offering the chance for 20 young tradesmen to join his team in the New Year and be mentored by experienced workers in their field while renovating an iconic Liverpool venue.

Greenwood is offering paid apprenticeships for plasterers, dry-liners, electricians, air conditioners, carpenters, glaziers and others interested in learning their trade on a major regeneration project.

Craig, who owns leading air conditioning firm Everkool, said: “I am incredibly excited to help develop the next generation of Liverpool talent at The Cavern Walks Hotel.

“This is an iconic venue, rich in Mathew Street history, and the ideal environment for young, passionate and skilled workers to learn a trade in a real, fast-moving and exciting environment.

“We offer all apprentices free health and safety training and pair them with an experienced mentor in their chosen field to help hone their skills.

“I am proud to give back to my city and I am really looking forward to working with our apprentices in the New Year.”
