Held in partnership with the Child Care Centre in Al Khoudh, the week-lengthy initiative invited six students to perform behind-the-scenes at the hotel, immersing them into the globe of hospitality and at some point inspiring them to pick a profession in this field.
“We are always excited to meet ambitious young Omanis who might join our passionate team,” mentioned Nabil al Zadjali, executive assistant manager (EAM) at Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
“Thanks to our partnership with the Child Care Centre, the ‘Junior Hoteliers’ programme has provided a excellent chance for these students to expand their horizons and uncover the myriad of careers accessible in Oman’s burgeoning hospitality market.
Through it, we hope to inspire a lot more of Oman’s youth, to tap into their vast prospective, and construct up the subsequent generation of hospitality leaders.”
The six students who lately completed their education and showed an interest in the hospitality market, had been introduced to the hotel’s different departments, assisting in day-to-day operations.
The programme started with an orientation, followed by operating closely alongside managers and supervisors in the places of housekeeping, recreation, culinary, engineering and safety. The Junior Hoteliers programme falls beneath the Ritz-Carlton group’s Community Footprints programme, component of which at making a good influence on the lives of other people and producing a meaningful distinction in the communities the Ritz-Carlton serves.
In Oman, this mission consists of an ongoing partnership with the Child Care Centre, which aims to empower orphans by supplying them with vocational coaching and educational programmes, equipping them with tools to boost their lives.
This year the programme also coincided with World Youth Skills Day on July 15, highlighting the value of youth abilities.
