Help fund your hospitality studies with a Seymour Hotels Centenary Bursary

Help fund your hospitality studies with a Seymour Hotels Centenary Bursary

18 October 2019

In 2020 our family-owned business will be celebrating 100 years of service in Jersey. To kick off our long-awaited celebrations, we're offering local students the chance to turn their dreams of a successful career in hospitality into reality with a Seymour Hotels Centenary Bursary.

The bursaries are the first of a number of centenary initiatives that will be rolled out during our 100th birthday year.

What do the bursary packages include?

With two tiers, the bursaries are open to students heading to University and students preparing for Sixth Form.

The University Bursary
The 'University' recipient will be awarded a £3,000 bursary to support their studies in a hospitality-related undergraduate degree, including culinary courses, starting in 2020.

The Student Sponsorship Package
The 'Sixth Form' recipients will be awarded a student sponsorship package, including course maintenance fees and regular mentoring, to support their studies on the Hospitality and Tourism or Culinary Arts full-time courses at Highlands College, starting in 2020.

Seymour Hotels Centenary Bursaries are open to passionate sixth form and university students.

Who should apply?

We want to hear from soon-to-be university and Highlands College students with a real passion for hospitality. As a recipient of a Seymour Hotels Centenary Bursary you'll receive more than just financial help. Our experienced team will be on hand to offer regular mentoring and plenty of real work opportunities.

We don't expect you to be running the place from day one! We just want you to be enthusiastic, hardworking and willing to learn.

Bursary recipients will be given regular mentoring and real work opportunities, as well as financial support.

Why are we offering bursaries?

Since our doors first opened in 1920, five generations of Seymours have worked for the company. As the business has grown, so has the size of the ‘family’, with over 350 staff employed across the group’s six properties during the summer months.

Over the past century, we have helped thousands of our team members – past and present – to go further, try harder, and achieve more than they thought possible.

The success of our business comes down to their hard work. The Seymour Hotels Centenary Bursaries are our way of giving back to those who have given us so much.

How do I apply?

Email your CV to Claire Reynard before Monday 2nd March 2020. If you'd like more information about the bursaries or our centenary celebrations, please call 01534 751609.
