In case you hadn’t heard, it was International Women’s Day on Sunday, and we have to say, we were truly moved to see so much love for all the ladies around the world. Women make up a significant part of our workforce here at Seaham Hall, and each and every one plays a vital role in making our hotel and spa a success.
In fact, three of them have even been shortlisted for North East Hotels Association Awards:
- Caroline May has been shortlisted for Support Services
- Dannika Bilton has been shortlisted for Rising Star
- Amanda Hardy has been shortlisted for Inspirational Leader
Find out more about some of the inspirational ladies that work at Seaham Hall below.
Dannika Bilton | Treatment Manager
Heading up the Treatment Team is Dannika Bilton. Dannika has been with us for five years and oozes positivity, empathy and kindness wherever she goes. This helps her build wonderful relationships with everyone she comes into contact with. What really sets Dannika apart is her passion for fitness and all-round wellbeing which gives her the edge in her role and ensures the spa is successful.
Amanda Hardy | Spa Manager
Amanda is the face, heart and soul of The Serenity Spa. She is a creative leader that inspires those around her to be the best that they can be. Her team have the utmost respect for her as she pushes each one of them to do their very best. Bringing out the best in people is tough, but Amanda manages to find the switch that lights up the team. She is totally on the same page as her team, making her an inspirational and forward-thinking leader.
Caroline May | Assistant Financial Controller
We call her the ‘Seaham Hall Guru.’ Caroline has gained a wealth of experience in her 18 years of service and when in doubt she is the person we call on. She leaves no stone unturned and is always in the right place at the right time. The support Caroline provides comes in many forms, both professional and emotional, which has supported her continuous progression. Her knowledge, positivity, creativity and relatability is hard to find and we are lucky to have gained such a dedicated employee.
Danielle Christofi | Spa Guest Relations Manager
Strong and independent, Danielle is warming to the core. Customer service is in her genes; she flourishes following great feedback and is instrumental in the spa and hotel operations. The trio of spa managers complement one another, and as the newest of our females to the HOD team, she has fitted in seamlessly. Team morale is where Danielle shines. She is a great motivator and very much a team player. When she’s around you know for sure the day ahead is going to be fun-filled and packed with energy.
Nicola Collings | Ozone Restaurant Manager
Nicola has bags of experience and understated talent. She has been with us from age 16 and the Ozone is her home away from home. Nicola’s service delivery is impeccable – when she’s around, the restaurant runs like clockwork with an atmospheric buzz as beautiful as its setting. This is a credit to Nicola, her team, and their determination. She is a very positive person, even in the toughest of circumstances. Amongst her colleagues, she is well known for her cameo role in the filming of Vera at Seaham Hall – something we will never let her forget!
Danielle Mottram | Hotel Reception Manager
Danielle simply has Seaham in her veins. She embodies our culture and ethos and is never short of a smile or two! Our guest journey is Danielle’s vision, where each guest is as special as the next. She always has huge amounts of enthusiasm (the kind you would love to bottle) combined with high emotional intelligence. She is our recipe for success.
Tracey Hubar | Housekeeping Manager
High standards and quality control are Tracey’s forte. Her eye for detail and relentless work ethic help set Seaham above the rest. In our opinion, everyone needs a Tracey in their life and wow are we lucky to have her. Under Tracey’s guidance, her team is the reason for our incredible cleanliness reputation which never goes unnoticed by our team members or guests. She is quirky yet direct, and very much a leading lady within the hotel and spa.
