OIAM Charity ‘Introduction to the World of Work’ - Midland Hotel

On Tuesday 13th February 2024, a group of young people from One In A Million’s Manningham Hub were treated to an ‘Introduction to the World of Work’ visit at the magnificent Midland Hotel in Bradford

David Crossley, General Manager, took the time to introduce them to the grand history of the hotel and share his own inspiring career story from room service waiter to General Manager.

Engage and inspired, the young people were taken on a behind the scenes tour of the hotel and introduced to the many roles which exist within the hospitality sector, which were eye opening for many of our young people.

One of the most eye catching features of the hotel is the magnificent chandelier in the Princes Ballroom, which our young people loved!

A great experience was enjoyed by everyone and many of the young people came away with aspirations of applying for one of the many casual and part time roles which exist within the hotel.

Manny: “What a great experience and I enjoyed David’s story telling”.  

Kamsie: “I couldn’t stop taking pics at the hotel to show my family”.

Lucas: “It’s great to hear that there may be an opportunity to get a job here in a couple of years when I reach the right age”.

David Crossley, Midland Hotel: “It was great to show such enthusiastic young people around the hotel and to share my career story. Hopefully we uncover the next young person who wants to have a career in the hotel industry”.

We would like to say a big thank you to David Crossley and the team at the Midland Hotel - Bradford for inspiring our young people and for their consistent support for the work of One In A Million.
