2017 Engineering Graduate Development Program at Mecca KSA
What will I be doing?
The objective of the Program is to develop future Hilton Worldwide Managers through a structured training Program. It gives participants the opportunity to learn by applying theory to working situations and gives them the experience needed to round out their education as well as to prepare them for a future Chief Engineer position. This Program is established to be in line with Hilton Worldwide strategic priorities to attract, develop and retain the best and most diverse talent in the industry. We are in need of a pool of future Chief Engineers who will play a major role in supporting this as well as our current and future expansion goals. The future of Engineering Operations will rely on Chief Engineers who possess and demonstrate not only sound technical skills but also effective managers driven by good business acumen, vision and strategic thinking enabling them to thrive in the dynamic, global and competitive working environment.
The Engineering Graduate Development Program will hire talent from Universities demonstrating sound academics in the field of engineering predominantly covering Mechanical, Electrical and Electromechanical, internal Hilton Worldwide candidates and from the industry. The Graduate Development Program embarks the trainee into a journey of understanding our company culture, hotel operations, broad experience across each function, focused development of skills and expertise required for engineering operations, self-learning and mentoring. The trainee’s ability, aptitude and most importantly commitment will play a great role towards progress to the Chief Engineer role.
The Program will cover all aspects of the Engineering Department
The duration of this Program is 24 months and is completed in 2 Phases; the first phase is “9” months duration and is a mix of competency and skills development to upgrade the candidates’ technical skills and knowledge.
The second phase is “15” months duration and is 80% technical and 20% administrative to enforce technical skills in day-to-day operation and to upgrade administrative and managerial skills.
During both phases there will be a blended learning approach and a variety of learning methods focusing on on-the-job learning, the acquisition of practical skills and knowledge to support the development of our future Chief Engineers where a technical project is presented at the end of each phase.
