O’Donoghue Ring Collection launches training partnership with Munster Technological University
In a drive to encourage recruitment within the hospitality sector, the O’Donoghue Ring Collection has partnered with Munster Technological University to launch a series of apprenticeships and trainee schemes. These programmes provide the opportunity for recruits to earn as they learn, with fully flexible, accredited and funded options available. The partnership was launched at an Open Evening in the Killarney Plaza Hotel & Spa on August 16, where prospective candidates learned all about the options available to them.
There are two pathways available – the Chef Apprenticeship Programme and the Trainee Management Development Programme.
Opportunities within the Chef Apprenticeship Programme range from earning a Certificate in Culinary Arts to taking on a Sous Chef Apprenticeship. Combining practical, in person training in a kitchen environment with the necessary classroom experience required for qualification, this option provides candidates with the skills and experience they need to excel within the restaurant industry.
The O’Donoghue Ring Collection Trainee Management Development Programme helps candidates learn on the ground and also on block release at MTU Tralee, giving them the groundwork to climb the management ladder in the world of hotel hospitality.
For those who don’t want to go down the traditional 9 to 5 office based career path, hospitality provides a vibrant and everchanging working environment with plenty of opportunity for growth. As well as careers in the kitchen and management, there are plenty of possibilities within hospitality, from guest relations, revenue management, sales, accounts and administration. The O’Donoghue Ring Collection provides numerous employee experience initiatives, with progressive and innovative resources for all staff.
With a renowned portfolio of hotels, restaurants and bars, including Killarney Plaza Hotel & Spa, Killarney Avenue Hotel, Killarney Towers Hotel and the River Island Hotel, the O’Donoghue Ring Collection is a prominent pillar of the hospitality industry. The properties and venues, along with the combined experience of their staff, creates an invaluable learning experience for those looking to enter the field of hospitality.
