Jurys Inn Edinburgh

I joined Jurys Inn during my university studies as a member of the Guest Service Staff team based in Food and Beverage department and a year later moved to a Supervisor role in the same department.


After graduating with a BA in Tourism Management and Languages from Edinburgh Napier University, I started the Graduate Programme in September 2011.
During the early stages of the Programme, I transferred to the Front Office Department and began working in reception. Having been trained in the fundamentals of reception’s duties, my responsibilities increased when I was appointed Duty Manager.


Within 3 months, I was given the opportunity to become Assistant Front Office Manager, a role I performed for 14 months before I was promoted to my current position of Front Office Manager.


I am very proud of my achievement of becoming a Head of Department but I feel I owe so much of it to the people who helped me along the way, especially those involved in the Graduate Programme.


The Programme has given me the opportunity to develop my skills and knowledge through extensive training and valuable networking. Without the support and resources that were made available to me throughout the Programme, I could not envisage myself holding the position I have within the company.


One of the best things about working for Jurys Inn is the culture of personal development and the opportunities for career progression that are presented to employees.
