How did you start your career in hospitality?
What is your favourite thing about your role?
What advice would you give to someone who wants to pursue a career in hospitality management?
My advice for someone who wishes to reach a senior position in hospitality is to enjoy participating in all aspect of hospitality and remember everyday is a learning day and do not be afraid to get stuck in.
What do you like about working with Trigon Hotels?
I have worked at Cork International Hotel for 11 years and I have learnt a lot as well as building a lot of friendships over the years. There are also opportunities to develop and be recognised here, I have done the “Train the Trainer” course within the hotel which helps me with my present role.
I have also received the employee of the year for last year.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I hope to be still with Trigon Hotels doing what I enjoy best, dealing with the public and training new staff members and still having fun.
