  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • My role has varied over the past year but the main principles were the same. Networking and speaking with different hotels and clients were the sole of the placement. Making sure that needs and expectations were met.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • I have learnt a significant amount of skills during my time here. My confidence has drastically increased along with all my interpersonal skills. Not only this but basic skills such as organisation and time management from working here have sky rocketed. I have learnt skills that i can take with me through my life, very grateful.

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • I was given major responsibility, including handling large enquiries worth millions for different business that Hilton are partnered with. It was up to me to convert and keep my client in contact with the hotel throughout the enquiries journey. I was tasked with creating projects for different segments which ultimately would be used for hotels and clients and their benefit.

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?

    Your Impressions

  • 6. To what extent did you enjoy your placement / internship?
  • To a large extent. I can't thank the people in my team enough for allowing me to experience some of the opportunities that i was welcomed to. Not just in my team, but the people you meet at socials from the office and the company are also fantastic, it really made me forget i was a student for sometime and made me want to get into the world of sales sooner

  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to Hilton
  • Speak to everyone. Go for it. Definitely apply, when i did, I wasn't sure i would get it, but i was very thankful i did. It's a really fantastic opportunity for a year placement. I would say speak to as many people as possible, as you never know who you will meet again down the line.
