About the Internship
Based at the luxury Rock City Hotel resort in Nkwatia – Kwahu, Eastern Region Ghana. These internships for experienced and inexperienced individiuals offer the perfect chance to travel abroad whilst getting hands on experience in a luxury hospitality setting. All departments of the hotel are seeking interns across the vertical of hospitality including; Front Desk, Room Attendants, Bar & Nightclub Support, Restaurant & Pizzeria Support, General Management, Maintenance, Landscaping, Marketing and Chefs. Interns will be placed in their specific departments in accordance with their interest, the hotels needs and any relevant experience you may have.
Interns will be provided with a range of benefits that can be found below listed in detail along with a monthly minimum stipend of $100, able to increase dependant on duration and experience.
Located on top of the Kwahu mountain plateau the hotel offers breath taking views of the surrounding forests and mountains and gives you the ability to explore the local hiking trails and waterfalls in your free time.
The site is close to our volunteer houses and offices so there is always a high social aspect in your free time to socialise with like minded travellers as well as your colleagues and fellow interns.
Why this placement?
As a huge driving force of development and employment in the area, a large focus of the recruitment process has been focused on hiring local people and youth that would otherwise not have the experience to get into the luxury hospitality sector. Due to this, the hotel is seeking for overseas interns to add to the team to bring a new flare and fresh point of view, hopefully being able to recall on their own travel and hospitality experiences within their home countries or whilst travelling.
As Rock City Hotel is the only international level hotel in the area, the local hospitality workers have not had the same exposure to higher standards in place at other luxury, high starred hotels. It is the goal of the hotel management that as a team we grow and learn together, gaining valuable first hand experience for the staff team to grow their skill set and offer the opportunity to become dedicated hospitality experts in their field.
