The Les Roches Marbella Inspiring Young Talent Award recognizes companies that foster youth employment and career development through on-going university recruitment practices, providing real-life work experience, management training programs, and accessible routes to successful careers.
The longstanding relationships Les Roches Marbella has within the hospitality industry attracts into international luxury hotel chains and related companies to our campus to recruit talent for both internships and permanent positions as well as for permanent positions.
Semester after semester, leading hospitality businesses from around the world recruit our students for operational, administrative, and managerial positions.
Employers visit Les Roches because they know our graduates and interns can jump right in, have an acute eye for detail, have solid communication and project management skills, and possess a spirit of teamwork. We are proud to be considered an important talent pool for the industry which we serve.
The 2019 Inspiring Young Talent Award recognizes Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, who has been recruiting students from Les Roches Marbella since its opening in Paseig de Gracia almost 10 years ago. Over the years, they have visited our campus on numerous occasions. During this time, we have forged a relationship of trust and loyalty, which has resulted in efficiency, satisfaction, and invaluable internship opportunities for our students.
Many students from across the three Les Roches campuses in Switzerland, Spain, and China have either trained, worked, or are currently employed and leading important positions within Mandarin Oriental Barcelona. This goes without mentioning the numbers of students and alumni who have developed their careers at other Mandarin Oriental hotels around the world.
We wish to extend our deepest gratitude to Mandarin Oriental Barcelona for providing so many opportunities for our students to grow professionally during the past decade and we are excited to continue our relationship for many years to come.
