Peter Harrison, Business Development Administrator at Springboard UK
INSPIRE Week continues and it was time for DUKES and Springboard UK to go back to college. On Friday 15th November, the weather had turned cold and bitter. Thankfully the classroom at Kingston College was toasty, no doubt heated by the fifty or so Travel and Tourism students and teachers that filled the room. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday had seen Food and Beverage, Housekeeping and Kitchen challenges provided by DUKES HOTEL. Friday was the day for knuckling down, with the students taking all those practical experiences from the rest of the week and applying them towards the pursuit of a career within the hospitality industry. Natalie (HR Manager) and Annalisa (PR & Leisure Sales Executive) from DUKES did an excellent job as they gave the students careers advice. From information about the variety of career opportunities available within different hotel departments and what each role entails to CV and interview tips, DUKES provided a wealth of advice around the hunt for a job.
