Future Inns has launched a search for a Hotel Apprentice, in a competition inspired by the hit BBC show fronted by Sir Alan Sugar.
Future, which has hotels in Cardiff, Bristol and Plymouth, is calling on budding entrepreneurs aged between 16 and 18 from South-west England and South Wales to explain where and why they'd build a hotel.
Six finalists will then be whittled down from all the entries and asked to attend a Finalists Challenge day at one of the chain's hotels, after which the winner will be announced.
Up for grabs is a month-long management apprenticeship at the hotel chain, including mentoring sessions from Future Inns founder Del Brett, £500 cash and a laptop.
To enter go to Future Inns Apprentice. The deadline is 31 December 2010.
