Management Trainee Programme

Carden Park Hotel is delighted to invite candidates to apply for the next intake of Management Trainees. We are offering training and development to dedicated, enthusiastic people – like YOU – who dream of pursuing a career in hotel management. If accepted, your desire to succeed, commitment and hard work will be recognised and rewarded with a promising long term future in the pinnacle of luxury hospitality with excellent employee benefits.

The Management Trainee Programme

Over the last decade, Carden Park has achieved an unrivalled level of excellence in the field of training and development of supervisory and managerial hospitality staff.

“Carden Park Hotel’s Management Trainee Programme is the best opportunity to learn real world skills in a quality hotel first hand.”

Michael Maloney – Management Trainee 2019 – 2020

Testimony to our award-winning formula for success is that more than 70% of trainees are retained within a management position on completion of the training scheme. This is, without doubt, one of our proudest achievements and a significant benefit to our hotel.

Our Management Trainee Programme is a two year course designed to enhance knowledge and provide trainees with good all-round operational experience whilst giving exposure to varying types of hotel environments. Trainees work across our hotel spending approximately three months in each department to gain valuable experience in all areas of hotel operations.

Full support is given throughout a trainee’s programme and at the end of the course, assistance is provided with finding a permanent position.

Carden Park Hotel aims to meet a demand in the industry for good quality hotel staff with management potential. It seeks to provide a unique service to the dedicated, enthusiastic and determined young people who wish to forge a life-long career in hospitality.

“My expectations of the training programme were exceeded. The experience I gained in two years would have taken at least five years in any other circumstances and this has aided me enormously with my career development. I have just been promoted to Assistant Bar Manager at Carden Park.”

Morgan Davies – Management Trainee 2018 – 2019
