Management trainee programme

We are a small hotel collection that is all about warmth, friendliness and a willingness to please. We believe the most important aspect is that our guests enjoy their stay and wish to return to any of our hotels.

Our approach to our staff is the same. We are interested in you and your career. Staff loyalty throughout our hotels is really quite important.

Our management Trainee Programme is all about thoroughly training you in the key areas of hotel keeping. We believe in the 'hands on' philosophy right through our management teams. We are practical in our approach and like to keep it simple, so that we can spend more time with our guests.

If you are the type of person who is interested in our philosophy and have a passion for any aspect of our industry, then we would be very interested to hear from you.

Our management trainee programme is aimed at hospitality and leisure college leavers/ NVQ students/ apprentices for our two year / 18 month programme, as well as hotel and catering business students/OND/HND and degree students for 18/12 month programme.

However both these programmes are available to those individuals who, whilst not having formal related qualifications, are interested in assistant and general management and learning every aspect of hotel keeping. Our programme is available to students from both the UK and overseas.

The programme is divided into the following areas and generally for the period specified, and in most cases will take place across a number of hotels which are specialists in particular areas-

Housekeeping (1 month)

Restaurant (3 months)

Conference & Banqueting (3 months)

Bars ( 3 months)

Kitchen (3/4 months)

Reception (3/5 months)

Within each area, you will be paired with a mentor whose responsibility it will be to help guide you in the department.

In order to complete each section, a short report will be required which will be based on a specific area within the department. Six monthly reviews of progress will also take place.

A comprehensive induction will ensure that you are familiar with each hotels regulations, including fire, food safety, manual handling and all other regulations.
