Hotel / Hospitality Graduate Scheme

Job description

We have fantastic opportunities for graduates to have a true hands-on hospitality experience whilst developing key management and leadership skills.

Be happy. Be here..

Can you inspire others to deliver great guest service? Do you have an eye for the detail and the hotel operations skills to match? If so, we'd like you to be part of a team that's happy to be here at Jurys Inn - and that's according to what our people tell us. #happyistheplacetobe

At Jurys Inn, our fantastic people make sure that every stay is extra-special. Taking care of our brilliant team is one of our biggest priorities so that they can look after our customers. If you share our values - friendly, genuine, positive, willing and consistent - you can expect everything from a career with real prospects to big discounts at our hotels,

You will have a true hands-on hospitality experience whilst developing key management and leadership skills. Our Graduate Programme is a two-year Management Development Programme where graduates will get the opportunity to live and breath hotel management and learn from the bottom up. Graduates rotate through all areas of the hotel during the three, eight-month placements within the Jurys Inn portfolio to get a feel and understanding of the whole operation and how it works together with opportunities to carry out work based projects that add real value to the company.

Programme members will move after eight months to another location in the UK and Ireland and really get the chance to put their first year learnings into practice. Graduates will be ready to move to front office, food and beverage, meeting and events and other management level roles at the end of the two-year programme. Extensive personal and professional development is provided throughout the programme with regular training workshops, webinars and project work - all of which will develop the core management skills needed to be a success in the hospitality industry.

What you can expect:
We think outstanding people deserve outstanding rewards. So if you join us, we'll give you major staff discounts at our hotels here and abroad. We'll also recognise your hard work through our Happy Rewards scheme: great performance can earn you anything from a day off to cinema tickets. On top of this, there are regular get-togethers, no split shifts and awards for staff who go above and beyond.

  • Ideally you will have worked in a number of hotel / leisure or tourism operational areas in the past developing your skills in food and beverage, front office, and meeting and events
