Marriott To Create 20,000 Hotel Jobs For Young People

The Marriott Hotels Group has announced plans to create a whopping 20,000 hotels jobs for young people in Europe over the next five years.

The Group says it will create an average of 4,000 apprenticeships, placements and training schemes for young people between the ages of 16 and 25 each year until 2020.

Marriott Hotel’s ‘World of Opportunity Programme’ was established in 2012 to help disadvantaged and out of work young people in Europe to get started in a career within the hospitality sector. So far, the Programme has created 4,000 work opportunities for the under 25 age demographic in Europe over the last three years, but the hotel group wants to further increase their intake of young people in the near future.

Explaining why the hotel and resort chain is investing so heavily in the age group, the president and managing director of Marriott International Europe, Amy McPherson, said that young people make a ‘significant difference’ to the company’s success.

“As a hotel group, we depend on talented people in order to survive. Hotels are a people business, and although technology and mobile connectivity have enhanced the industry, it will, at its heart, always remain a people business. It has been extraordinary to watch the progress and commitment of these young people rise up through the ranks of our company, and seeing them enjoy a huge sense of pride and ambition,” added Ms McPherson.
