Liz McGivern

Vice President People & Culture

Having worked for Red Carnation Hotels for nearly 20 years, the best feedback for me is when guests remark on the fantastic service they received. Ultimately this is how my department is judged; on our recruitment through to the training we deliver. The most satisfying moments are when I see someone develop and grow within the company or being happy in their role, doing a brilliant job and wishing to stay with the company for many years is important to me.

After working in a busy London hotel for several years I made the move to HR to follow my passion for working with people. Upon gaining experience in Training, Recruitment and HR Manager roles, my journey with Red Carnation Hotels began with my time as Group HR Manager. I have since been promoted to Director of People & Culture and feel fortunate to work for such a unique, dedicated and caring company.

My career in hospitality began in the kitchen at my local hotel. The experiences led me to understand that I enjoyed both working with people and serving them. I began my journey with Red Carnation Hotels in January 2019, and I am so proud to be working for one of the best companies in hospitality, and since joining I understand why – each and every member of the team is treated with genuine care. I look forward to supporting my team to achieve the highest possible standards and beyond.
