Macdonald Hotels to train 400 young people in hospitality

Macdonald Hotels & Resorts has announced that it will place 400 young people into 16-week hospitality traineeships next year.

Working in partnership with Total People, Macdonald Hotels is offering unemployed 16 to 24-year-olds the opportunity to apply for a Future Talent programme to experience food and beverage, conference and front of house roles at 17 of its 48 hotels across the UK.

Trainees will be mentored by senior managers at Macdonald Hotels and after four weeks will be able to choose their preferred positions in the hotel. They will also spend two days a week with Total People, who will deliver theory-based lessons.

At the end of four months, successful participants will be offered a place on a vacancy or apprenticeship programme.

Kellie Rixon, brand director at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, said: "Where university doesn't appeal to school leavers, or graduates are looking for a change of career, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts is offering young people a fully-rounded introduction to a career in the hospitality industry. The training is rigorous, but participants will have access to some of the best in the business."
