Do you have the ambition and potential to become a Leader in Finance?
With our major global presence and ambitious growth plans, Hilton needs to develop a strong cadre of future leaders. Finesse aims to develop a select group of talented, internationally mobile graduates and fast-track them to a CIMA qualified Finance Leadership Role within 5-8 years of completion.
It is the first step in our talent management ladder, offering accelerated development into a first financial management position followed by a fast-track, structured career path with ongoing development to help you to maximize your future potential with us.
What Does the Finesse Programme Cover?
Finesse consists of a 36-month training program which includes two international placements in our hotels, each lasting 12 months. Following successful completion of your two placements, you will be assigned into a full-time finance role in year 3.
During your placements, you will gain all-round Finance experience whilst working in all the main Finance functions. You will also gain exposure to other key functional areas of Operations, Business Development and Human Resources.
You will participate in off-the-job training and have business driven projects to complete.
During Finesse, your progress is constantly assessed, so you always know how you are developing.
As the programme is so flexible, it will take into account all training that you have already had to date and build on it, rather than making you repeat things unnecessarily.
What are the Learning Benefits?
The key focus here will be for you to complete the CIMA Professional Finance Qualification. This is a highly regarded professional qualification with global recognition in the Finance profession. This process will be supported by Hilton in terms of both funding and learning support. The CIMA qualification typically takes 3 years to complete, so this will be completed alongside your first two placements and your year 3 finance role with us.
