Grand Hotel Excelsior is proud of its excellent relationship with ITS. This strong affiliation goes back to March of 2007, five months before the hotel opened, when we participated in an open careers week that was held at the ITS premises. Over the years we have hosted a number of students for their placements, and have subsequently employed several ITS graduates, many of whom now occupy executive and managerial positions. The structure of the ITS programme, combining theoretical and practical learning, ensures that students have the necessary skills and knowledge to be able to work in the hospitality industry with confidence. This year, we are satisfied to have confirmed a good number of students who will be joining our team for their summer placement. We believe that these individuals will assist us in continuing to provide a superior service quality to our guests.
