Youth Career Initiative is an employability program that partners with local hotels to give disadvantaged young people (aged 17–24) the chance to learn a range of skills across a variety of departments. Since the launch of our partnership, we have trained more than 200 students and more than 85% of them either get a job or continue their education, proving the incredible success of this program. By giving career opportunities to vulnerable young people, the company gains new, youthful, and dynamic colleagues.
