The Lancaster Hotel Signs up Flexible Staffing App Coople


The Lancaster London Hotel, one of London’s most prestigious and well established hotels, is today announcing a partnership with flexible staffing app Coople.

From today, The Lancaster London has contracted Coople to supply staffing across the Food & Beverage Department (which incorporates predominantly the Event Suites but also the restaurants and bars as well) via its flexible, on-demand staffing app. This enables the hotel to hire and manage staff within minutes – furthering its standard for exceptional customer service and enhancing the world-class accommodation experience on offer.

Coople, which launched in the UK this year, provides flexible staffing solutions for businesses in the hospitality, events, promotion, retail, logistics and commercial sectors, enabling companies to find reputable, skilled staff within minutes.

The Lancaster London is now joining Coople’s list of clients that are digitising their recruitment and staffing methods, moving this to an online, fast-moving hiring app.

Foysal Ahmed, Event Operations Manager at the Lancaster London said this of the partnership:

“We were attracted to Coople’s digital proposition by the ability to flex our levels of staffing at very short notice. It’s vitally important for us to have a trusted partner, and while we have been looking at flexible staffing solutions for some time, Coople was the first to show real depth of knowledge and understanding of the hospitality space, with a track record to match.”

Jacques de la Bouillerie, Managing Director of Coople UK added:

“Our partnership with the Lancaster London is a great vote of confidence in the Coople platform.  We have been talking with the iconic British hotel for some time, and while we all agreed that our flexible staffing solution could revolutionise the way the Lancaster does business, we were rigorously tested on our ability to deliver staff at a moment’s notice.  I am very proud that we have demonstrated our ability to serve high-end clients like the Lancaster London.”
