“Training with us is something special because it’s how we go about doing it. The fear is taken away, as there is no deep end with us. It’s an organic process that develops over some time, so you naturally become the heartbeat of the hotel. A place where you can interact and have fun with colleagues. We pride ourselves in pin-pointing your gifts and where you excel – so you are placed in the right role for you to shine!”
