One-to-one help from an AI Case worker, helped a young woman (W) with a complex and challenging home life secure a placement and job with the Marriott Hotel Group.
However, after these successes, W encountered several barriers to progression:
These were extremely stressful circumstances for W; naturally, her Passport Caseworker gave her as much support as possible. Despite this, W struggled to stay positive and fell into an unhealthy routine. Her attendance at college was patchy, and eventually she made the decision to leave the course.
The only thing that still seemed to motivate W was the prospect of getting a job at the Marriott Hotel. She updated her CV (with assistance from her Caseworker) and began submitting applications for various Marriott positions.
W attended two interviews and a work trial, and just before her 17th birthday she was delighted to be offered a casual contract as a Conference and Banqueting Associate at the Marriott Dalmahoy Hotel. She completed her first paid shift at the hotel on Friday 12th April and has been working there since. W is now the latest (and youngest!) of our many success stories with Marriott hotels. She is a great example of patience and persistence – on the part of both her and her Caseworker.Back to News
