Conor is Deputy General Manager at Jurys Inn. Conor says, “I began my career with Jurys Inn almost 3 years ago now as a Sales executive and immediately I realized I had joined a group that was interested in my career progression. I was promoted to Duty Manager and the GROWonline learning tool became my bible as it gave me access to so many webinars and modules which helped me develop in this role. I was accepted on to the Accelerate Programme that develops managers to Deputy General Manager late last year. I began this programme as a Food & Beverage Manager and while I have been a part of this fantastic programme I have been promoted to Operation Manager and now to Deputy General Manager.
What I found great about Accelerate was how it was so closely aligned to my career goals, and I have begun already achieving them. Accelerate allows you to closely mentor with experienced General Managers and monthly progress discussions help to refocus each month along with setting new targets and objectives, to push you outside of your comfort zone allowing you the space for growth and development; all the while gaining valuable experience along the way. I would 100% recommend Jurys Inns for a career in hospitality, it is a fantastic group to work with & I wish I had joined earlier in my career.”
