This placement is ideally suited to an undergraduate with a passion for food and restaurant concepts or interior design, who is looking to gain experience within a globally renowned hospitality company.

Hilton Work Perks

In addition to a competitive salary you will also receive a range of excellent benefits - probably the best of which is our Go Hilton Team Member Travel Program. This provides you with access to heavily reduced hotel room rates for you, your family & friends. Perfect for the holiday savvy intern!

In our Watford office you will also benefit from a subsidized canteen, free in- house gym and a games room. You will be part of a cohort of approximately 30 Interns who are spread across various departments, and will be involved in our unique intern programme. This includes monthly meetings and assignments which are designed to support your development.

The Restaurant Development team are responsible for driving the development of high quality food & beverage concepts for Hilton’s Luxury, Lifestyle, Full Service and Focus Service Brands. This includes everything from the look and feel of the restaurant, the identity of the restaurant, to the food that ends up on the plates. As an Intern, you will support on a variety of projects and will gain great exposure and insight to a career within Food and Beverage Concept Development and Branding on an international scale.

A bit about the job

As an intern, you will be an integral part of the team and will play an active role in our continued success. Some of the more specific responsibilities you will be taking on are detailed as follows;

  • Carrying out extensive desktop market research on Food and Beverage trends, analysing and reporting your findings and sharing these with the wider team.
  • Supporting the development of concept briefs, presentations and prototypes
  • Tracking pipeline for future projects and statuses of existing projects.
  • You will be instrumental in the day to day organising of the team which will include providing general administrative support, attending meetings and communicating with a range of internal stakeholders, both in the UK and internationally.

What are we looking for?

As with any job, we do have certain criteria that you will need to meet in order to be considered for this amazing opportunity. These are detailed as follows;

  • Must be in your second or final year of undergraduate study at the point of application
  • Must be able to start in June 2020 and available for the full 12 months.
  • Must be eligible to work in the UK. If you are a non-EU national then you will need to be studying at a UK university in order to be eligible to undertake a placement here.
  • The ideal candidate will have a passion for food and dining out, and will be able to input suggestions that will help us to deliver exceptional dining culture internationally.
  • Some hospitality industry experience is preferred although not essential. Knowledge of restaurant concepts, restaurant design, Food and Beverage trends and menu planning would also be great to have.
