Macdonald Hotels has become the latest in a line of businesses in the hospitality sector to open a trainee scheme.

The hotel chain has announced that it will take on 400 young trainee trainees in 2016 and place them into full-time training programmes.

Unemployed 16-24 year-olds will be able to apply for the 16-week Future Talent scheme where they will gain first-hand experience of all aspects of the hospitality industry including food and beverage, conference, and front-of-house roles.

At the end of the placement, trainees will placed in vacancies and apprenticeships across the group.

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, high quality, introduction to a career in the hospitality industry.

“As a leading name within the sector, we’re committed to providing real opportunities for people to enter employment. The training is rigorous, but participants will have access to some of the best in the business, putting them on a genuine path to success.”
