Housekeeping Supervisor Trainee

About the job

The Housekeeping Supervisor Training Program aims to introduce hotel and tourism students to the hospitality industry, providing them with an enriching hands-on experience in one of the most profitable departments of our hotel. Here, our trainees will be merged in a safe and learning propitious environment, acquiring the operative knowledge directly from our experienced Quality Manager, meaning that the internship mentor will work hand in hand with the student.
Besides the operational practical training, there is always an on-sight group induction for all trainees where they will learn about the hotel chain and hotel brand, including their concept and purpose, values, and standards. Additionally, the internship program also includes a set of department-related e-learning courses. At last, students will have the opportunity to enroll in a variety of other online trainings (Housekeeping-related or not) provided by the IHG training platform if they wish to.
The property has an evaluation plan for all trainees. Each department sets objectives at the start of the internship and has two follow-up meetings - 30 days and 90 days. At the end of the internship, each HOD will send HR all the feedback for an end of the program session.
Regarding weekly hours, the trainee will work 40 hours a week (8 hours per day) with two weekend rest days.
At InterContinental Barcelona we work with a minimum training program period of 5 months, where the trainees will get to learn and assist in performing all tasks carried out by the hotel's Quality Manager.

The trainee will learn from and support the department in the following tasks:
- Assist in scheduling routine inspections of all guest rooms and public areas to ensure furnishings, rooms, equipment, linens, public restrooms, lobby, etc. are clean and in good repair to meet guest satisfaction.
- Help implement the IHG Clean Promise standards throughout the hotel.
- Assist in maintaining and ordering supplies and equipment whilst minimizing waste and maintaining “green” initiatives (example: container recycling, and cleaning agents).
