Our hotels are some of the most vibrant, fun, challenging and exciting workplaces you can possibly find. The Emerging Leader Programme is an accelerated learning and development programme that offers real opportunities for you to carve out a rewarding and successful career in hospitality.

This ensures you gain valuable skills, experience and exposure.
We want you to be on track to become a future leader, so by the conclusion of he programme, you will have achieved a Level 3 Team Leader/Supervisor Apprenticeship (if you don’t already have one) and completed our 'Inspire to Manage' internal training modules. You'll get lots of support along the way, plus lots of opportunities to get involved in some really exciting events and initiatives. You'll emerge from the programme with the skills, experience and development you need to be a best in class hotel operator, ready to take your first supervisory or management position.

You have to be passionate about hospitality to make a success of this programme. You'll need to manage your time well, as you'll be working and studying as part of your development. So you’ll be committed, hardworking and absolutely dedicated to the programme.
