Macdonald spas introduce new careers initiative

Macdonald Hotels & Resorts is introducing a career development pathway for its spa staff.
‘Your Spa Career Development Plan' is a structured development pathway which will encourage staff across its 23 venues in the UK, Ireland and Portugal to fulfil their career aspirations.

Staff will benefit from a tailor-made programme based on their specific needs and level of experience, which has been constructed in cooperation with the Elemis Academy of Excellence. The programme serves as an integral part of the company's overall growth strategy, fuelling the pipeline of senior spa staff that will help further the development of the business.

Keith Pickard, Group Director of Golf, Leisure & Spa at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, commented: “Our Spa Career Development Pathway clearly outlines the support available [to our therapists] and formalises the training schemes provided by our product houses. We hope that this will encourage our spa staff to gain new skills and progress with confidence to the level that they have set their sights on.”
