Splendid Family

Jay Evans

Deputy General Manager

I am originally from a small valley named Maesteg in Wales. My first work experience after leaving comprehensive school was within the Royal Mail Postal Service where I begin an Apprenticeship programme as PHG. At the age of 20 I then found myself entering my first hotel in Wales as a Night Porter, 16 Years later I am still developing in the wonderful hospitality industry.

Well in my spare time I am a big fan of the Cinema and watching all the latest releases to the world of cinema. My Favourite all time movie is ‘BAD BOYS’. My biggest passion is Wales National Rugby Team and watching them in every competition. I grew up in a family of Boxers where my grandad was our trainer; I had a successful boxing childhood by winning the Amateur Welsh Title 4 years running and then to be included in the Amateur National Wales Boxing Team.

I found my way to Splendid by starting my role at Vanbrugh House Hotel as the Maternity Cover Senior Assistant Manager. I have had the opportunity to work and learn alongside a great General Manager. I could easily describe Splendid Family as Fun, Evolving, and Successful. I can honestly say the most valuable thing I have learnt since being part of the Splendid Family is how to live and breathe the Purpose & Way philosophy not just in the work environment but everyday life.
