"I first joined Minor Hotels as a Russian Ambassador at the Anantara Layan Phuket Resort and saw all the countless opportunities the company offers to people with drive and talent. I decided to apply for the Ascent Programme and to get a chance to develop the technical, commercial, and leadership skills I need to become a successful leader in the future. What I love about this programme is the variety of learning, on the job experience, support and exposure you get. I feel inspired and ready to face new challenges!

"I joined Minor as trainee at Qasr al Sarab Desert Island Resort by Anantara where I discovered my passion for Front Office. Since then I had the opportunity to join the Ascent Graduate Journey where I continued my learning journey in Malaysia, Maldives and eventually Qatar, then in Abu Dhabi at Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Yamm Villa Resort. I am now in Vietnam as Villas Manager for the opening team at the beautiful Anantara Quy Nhon”

"Right after I graduated from university, I was very fortunate to be selected as one of the Ascent participants. As part of my 18 months’ placement I worked in 2 properties - Anantara Mai Khao, Phuket and Anantara Qasr Al Sarab, Abu Dhabi. During that time, I was training and working in a fast paced environment to acquire the necessary skills to become a successful leader. I also had the chance to broaden my network, knowledge and discover new cultures. After I completed the Ascent Programme, I became a full-time Assistant Outlet Manager at Anantara Riverside Bangkok. This fantastic programme gave me the opportunity to gain strong leadership skills and a deeper understanding of hospitality. I feel better equipped to be one of Minor Hotels’ leaders in the future."

"Two years back, I joined Minor Hotels as a Front Desk Agent in Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels By Tivoli in Doha. I was selected for the Ascent Graduate Journey, which enabled me to grow my career at a faster pace. In this journey I had the opportunity to get more experience and knowledge in various departments where I hadn’t had the chance to work before, and I learned the responsibilities and pressures other departments experience. The Programme gave me a life-changing opportunity to grow myself and develop my career under the supervision of professionals and experienced department heads. Minor Hotels changed my life and my way of thinking about my goals. What are you waiting for? Come and join us."
