Malmaison and Hotel du Vin expand apprenticeships

The hotel group behind the Malmaison and Hotel du Vin brands is to extend the range of apprenticeship it offers over the next year as part of its efforts to attract, develop and retain talent.

To supplement the 75 apprenticeship opportunities currently available, which range from management to chef to front-of-house roles, at all levels from entry level right up to level three supervisory positions, the group plans to offer Level 5 qualifications in 2018 for those looking to further progress their careers at head office level. 

In addition, Malmaison and Hotel du Vin is planning to roll out a range of new apprenticeship courses over the next few months, including roles in spa & beauty, events management, sales & marketing, finance, HR and IT.

With A Level results due to come out this week, the Malmaison Hotel du Vin brand wants to attract those individuals looking for an alternative to higher education and demonstrate the rewarding career opportunities the hospitality industry can offer.

Lindsay Southward, group people development director, said: “It’s increasingly important for the industry to make young people aware of the varied and exciting career opportunities available in the hospitality industry.

“Here at Malmaison Hotel du Vin, we ensure that both existing and new talent have access to a range of courses regardless of their level, to enable them to develop their professional career – whether that be with us or in the industry – and apprenticeships are a big part of that and will continue to help grow our already extensive training directory and fulfil our goal of becoming an academy.”
