Crerar Hotels receives 200 applications for graduate programme

Crerar Hotels, a Scottish hospitality group, has received over 200 applications for its new graduate management programme.

The programme aims to give the next generation of hospitality leaders their “first taste of industry experience”.

Successful applicants will take part in an 18-month programme which offers hands-on experience of all aspects of the business alongside ongoing training and regular workshops with the company CEO and central revenue, finance and marketing teams.

As part of the programme, recruits will receive accommodation, meals and a minimum salary of £25,000 per annum.

Appointees have also been “promised” a job placement in the area of their choice at the end of the programme.

The roles are the first to be recruited under the newly launched Crerar Academy, which has been set up as part of the hotel group’s focus on “people development”, to provide “life-long learning and career progression”.

Chris Wayne-Wills, CEO of Crerar Hotels, said: “It’s evident that the recruitment crisis is still rumbling on for the wider industry, but we’re making great strides in ensuring that our teams are bolstered with committed, talented employees looking for a rewarding career within a business where hard work and authenticity is truly valued.

“The successful graduate management programme candidates will embark on some of the best training and development on offer along with a first-class benefits package and the opportunity to begin building a real future in the hotel industry – as well as learning their craft in some of Scotland’s most breath-taking locations.”
