Hilton invests in mentoring Saudi talent
Hilton announced its partnership with Bunyan for Training, an affiliate of the reputed hospitality management school in Switzerland, Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL), to provide select young Saudi talent with an opportunity to start a career in hospitality. The partnership will offer a training programme that is accredited by the Saudi Technical and Vocational Training Corporation and certified by the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne.
“At Hilton, we always strive to create meaningful opportunities for professional growth that are unrivalled in the hospitality industry,” said Fawaz Moumina, Senior Director of Human Resources, KSA, Egypt & Levant, Hilton. “We’re proud to be able to offer participants hands-on training by the experienced teams across our hotels in Saudi, as well as an opportunity to continue their journey with us upon graduation. This programme, provided in partnership with Bunyan for Training, will undoubtedly give students invaluable tools and experiences that will enable them to thrive in this ever evolving industry.”
The programme will allow a number of select students to receive sought after theoretical and practical curricula, with the aim of offering them job opportunities across Hilton hotels in Saudi following programme graduation. The programme also offers participants the opportunity to continue building on their knowledge if they wish, by allowing them to pursue a Bachelor’s degree and expand their skillset accross a variety of hospitality professions, including the culinary arts, F&B service, front office, and housekeeping.
Nabil Tuker, CEO of Bunyan for Training, said, “We’re delighted to collaborate with Hilton for this groundbreaking training programme that we believe will provide a hugely beneficial start to a group of young students. Through expert coaching and real-life work experience, these students will have the best possible start in the hospitality industry with Hilton.”
Participants will be selected in June 2022 by Bunyan for Training with Hilton’s consultation.
