Holiday Inn is one of the world's largest hotel chains. Their committed to providing all our guests the most comfortable and relaxing stay.
We spoke with Holiday Inn Derby - Riverlights general manager, Carrie-Louise Holleran about hiring apprentices.
We are able to introduce a new individual to the hospitality industry and develop real skills in the area that they have been or are studying currently at College, enabling them to bring what they learn in the classroom to life in a real time situation. Equally, they are able to use examples from their apprenticeship towards their qualification.
Provided that the apprentice has a real drive and wants to work in the hospitality industry then I do think that apprenticeships work.
I do. It is giving the opportunity to a young person in Derby to learn work skills whilst training. It is a way for the organisation to support young workers and drive new employees in to the industry they are passionate about.
