The roles are spread across its 582 UK hotels, including Markham Moor near Retford.
Travelodge said it believes the trend for more "staycation" holidays in the UK will continue, giving a boost to the hospitality sector.
The company has an in-house management development programme, which has helped thousands of entry-level staff climb the career ladder, and offers flexible working hours around the school run to attract parents.
The Markham Moor Travelodge is currently recruiting new part-time receptionist who will check in guests, and benefits such as 50 per cent off rooms, food and drink for yourself, friends and family.
Travelodge chief executive Craig Bonnars said: "The start of a new year is a great opportunity to kick-start a new career change.
"Working in the hotel industry is fun and exciting and it opens a door to a world of opportunities."
