Teeling, who is currently on a hotel management course at The Edge Hotel School, was approached to complete a three-week internship at the hotel shortly after he enrolled on his course. He worked in the sales & marketing office, the private dining & meetings area and Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar - which was opened last year.
"Whilst working at the London Marriott Hotel County Hall, the experience and knowledge I gained also enabled me to practice my own management style and knowledge of the industry," Teeling said.
Theresa Maw, general manager of the hotel, said the experience had gone so well she would be keen to take on more students from The Edge Hotel School. "We are delighted to have welcomed Luke to the Marriott County Hall and hope that he both learned a lot and enjoyed the experience of working in a five-star hotel in London.
“We are sponsors of the Edge Hotel School initiative and I look forward to many more students joining us on work placement," she added.
