16 Dec Siobhán Leith completes her HIT Scholarship
Our Marketing Manager, Siobhán Leith, returned safe and sound from a snowy but fantastic HIT Scholarship at De Vere’s Cameron House at the start of December. Siobhán spent 4 days staying at the hotel and working with the sales and marketing team to experience some of the running and back ground work that goes into the hotel.
As Cameron House is part of a bigger hotel chain, and yet very much an independent venue, it was interesting to see the differences and similarities between the hotel and Dundas Castle. Siobhán commented “not only was the whole experience really useful in terms of learning about the business, most specifically the marketing side, but my time at Cameron House was also really good for my self development… And it was a lovely bonus to be able to stay at the hotel for 4 days!” (It was lucky that she was scheduled to stay as she would have been snowed in anyway!).
The HIT Scholarship programme offers fantastic opportunities for its scholars to learn from industry partners and specialised schools that they would not necessarily have been able to experience otherwise. Our Assistant Operations Manager Ricarda Plews was also a beneficiary of the award and had a wonderful time in Lausanne in Switzerland.
