Community Outreach
 

Community Outreach

 
We are passionate about our projects and events which have taken us “Around the World “ and seen our Global Week of Service and Careers Live weeks embracing hospitality and the showing young people firsthand the difference our strengths and skills can make in the community.

Supporting 5 different charities across the Midlands we have dug, cleaned, painted and prepared food in our, hands on service projects. Fun days and extreme physical challenges all form part of our commitment to having fun and raising money.

We support other learning initiatives and local charities within the area through the Hilton in the Community Foundation which aims to raise money in a variety of ways to improve the lives of children, their health and education. 
 
Getting together with the local community we have forged strong links in the areas that team members work, live and travel to and from. Our promise extends to the next generation of potential team members and Guests. Over the past year alone we have held sessions and workshops with over 1,200 young people in the Birmingham, Solihull and Warwickshire area.
 
We have supported schools and colleges working together to offer taster days, career development and opportunities to see what really goes on in a busy hotel. This is linked with our extensive Apprentice programme which offers first class opportunities to those embarking on a career in hospitality and taking the first steps towards working with a global market leader.

Our commitment to our community will carry on with more events and exciting activities planned for coming years.
