Marriott to Employ Arab Youth

Marriott International has partnered with INJAZ Al- Arab, the MENA office of Junior

Achievement Worldwide, to launch the organisation’s youth empowerment campaign.

Expand Your Horizon is focussed on showcasing internship and employment opportunities from the region’s key growth industries.

“This initiative allows Marriott the opportunity to create a paradigm shift in the perception of hospitality among MENA nationals, and showcase careers in hospitality to the next generation of hoteliers, benefiting both the Arab youth as well as our industry,” commented David Leman, chief human resources officer, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International.

So far, the company has received over 1,400 applications and the hotelier is looking to appoint 55 young interns across Egypt, Jordan, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Algeria, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
