LUXURY five-star resort Cameron House Hotel, as they have announced applications for its 2022 Graduate Programme are now open.

The programme focuses on preserving the talent of the country’s next generation of hospitality stars, with an 18-month scheme offering different programmes across a variety of specialist areas such as Rooms Division or Food & Beverage, as well as offering a multi-discipline programme across several different areas of the operation. The programme also provides management trainees with the opportunity to learn from an elite team of specialists and experts in luxury service.

In addition to their thorough reach across educational establishments across Scotland, Cameron House is eager to extend the graduate programme to other educational bodies via colleges and universities across the UK, so as wider geographical demographic can apply. Dependent on the role, graduates will have access to a variety of off job training and development opportunities such as, Wine and Spirits Educations Trust (WSET) Level 2 certification, essential first aid training, as well as a competitive salary and an impressive benefits package. Additionally, every recruit will benefit from a three-day induction programme at the resort, situated on the banks of Loch Lomond.

Since opening in September last year, the hotel has already welcomed more than 8 graduates, all who have been pivotal in the success of the re-opening. In amongst the success stories from the last six months are the 2021 candidates, who joined the programme in July, including Rachel Turnbull, Rooms Division Graduate Manager and Hannah May, Multi-Discipline Graduate Manager. As part of the scheme, graduates are given the opportunity to thoroughly learn the workings of a division before being rotated to another after 6 months.

Rachel Turnbull began with Cameron Lodges working part-time whilst in secondary school and throughout university. Graduating with distinction from Edinburgh Napier University with a BA Hons in International Hospitality Management.

Rachel said: “The training at Cameron House has already given me the chance to experience multiple parts of the business, really getting to understand how the hotel runs day-to-day and the importance of everyone’s role. My biggest highlight so far has been preparing for COP26 in November; welcoming world leaders from across the globe for what may be the most important climate summit so far, and to know I had helped, even in a small way, was very gratifying.”

Hannah May graduated with BA Honours in International Business with Hospitality and Tourism Management from the University of Strathclyde. Hannah currently works in the Great Scots Bar.

Hannah said: “Graduating in 2020 was challenging as the hospitality and travel industry was, in my eyes, the most affected by Covid-19. I used this time to explore my career options and my university lecturer highlighted the Cameron House Graduate Programme. I jumped at the chance to apply, as not many graduate schemes are based in Scotland. I also have a great passion for the outdoors and the environment, therefore the hotel’s location on the banks of Loch Lomond sold it for me. I also loved how the programme allowed you to get management experience in multiple departments too.”
