Category: Recruitment

Hilton and Hospitality – what can we do for you? Across its 6,600 properties worldwide, Hilton has created a special culture centred around its team members. From flexible working and fast career progression, to being enrolled onto the company’s exclusive travel discount programme, a career at Hilton can offer a real world of opportunity.

For over a century, Hilton has adapted to the evolving needs of its teams, offering a huge number of opportunities for personal development including apprenticeships and graduate programmes.

The company is ranked as number one on the UK’s ‘Best Workplaces’ list and number three on the UK’s ‘Best Workplaces for Women’ list by Great Place to Work. Hilton is committed to creating a diverse and exceptional workplace culture, supporting team members in achieving both personal and professional goals.

With enhanced leadership development programmes that benefit team members at every level, such as the 2021 [email protected] scheme which provides access to coaching and mentoring by senior leaders in the business, each Hilton team member is seen as being a potential leader and critical to its global success.

During one of the most challenging times for the hospitality industry, Hilton understands that wellbeing is more important than ever. Programmes such as Thrive[email protected] offer team members access to a mental wellness hub and the Thrive Global app, which are both loaded with mental health and wellness resources.

Leadership teams also receive access to a range of coaching and support resources to create conditions where team members can be the best version of themselves.

Additionally, the company’s ethos is further grounded by a strong focus to drive positive social and environmental change across its operations and the communities in which it operates. Through its Travel with Purpose programme, Hilton continues to recognise the importance of sustainable travel and tourism.

To encourage greater inclusivity within the business, the company also offers flexible working patterns across corporate and hotel roles, as well as flexible hours to help balance personal commitments and family-focused programmes, including enhanced parental leave, bereavement leave and adoption leave.

Hilton takes every opportunity to grow and recognise its team members, such as Mario Anthony Xavier De Souza, restaurant supervisor at Hilton London Syon Park, who recently completed the Level 3 hospitality supervisor apprenticeship. Through his training, Mario was given the tools to gain technical knowledge and practical experience, while developing his hospitality skills to an exceptional standard.

Mario said: “I joined Hilton in 2018 and it is the best decision I have made yet! I’m so grateful that my apprenticeship has not only allowed me to earn a qualification, but I’ve also learned about the different areas of the hotel and have been given a chance to develop important skills that will help me in my career.”
