One lucky youngster will get the chance to work at one of Aberdeenshire’s most prestigious hotels – thanks to Apprentice 100.
The historic Meldrum House Hotel has served up a five-star pledge for the Press and Journal’s campaign and promised to take on one apprentice.
Over the years the hotel has trained several young people and had most success in their front of house department. This time the new recruit will get to work in the fast paced kitchen and learn a variety of skills during the three-year programme.
Andy Burgess, chief executive of Meldrum House Hotel, said: “The hospitality industry in general terms has experienced skill shortages locally in Aberdeen, UK-wide and internationally and particularly in the kitchen area of the business.
“I think that the industry has a responsibility to try and grow our own talent. On that basis we were very keen to support this scheme and encourage more apprentices to join our industry.”
Meldrum House Hotel will join our ever-growing roll of honour alongside new additions Aiken Group, Anderson Anderson & Brown and Aircon Scotland who were all announced this week.
The Press and Journal is also offering its own opportunity – The Joe Watson Memorial Apprenticeship.
