Grad mentoring scheme

The Hospitality Undergraduate Mentoring Scheme

The Hospitality Undergraduate Mentoring Scheme (previously known at The Savoy Society Mentoring Scheme) was established in 2009 when it was identified by Stuart Johnson and The Savoy Society members, that it was important to support University students when entering the Hospitality Industry. Previous research had shown that on completion of hospitality placements, 40% of students during their studies were not entering the industry.

It was decided that students undertaking Hospitality Management Degrees from selected UK universities should be given the opportunity to be supported with the expertise and experience that members of the Industry possess. These members have had their own developmental pathway to management and have gained a wealth of experience to then support a mentee and pass on this knowledge. Through a mentoring capacity students are supported for three years during their studies and into their initial steps into industry.

Throughout the mentoring process, it is expected that both mentors and students will benefit greatly from the experience. This scheme will be ongoing and will involve both parties communicating regularly and partaking in various events and activities.



Students must:

  • Be currently studying toward a degree in Hospitality Management.
  • Be 2nd year students onwards.
  • Be able to attend Mathching Day in November 2016.
  • Display a desire to follow a career in the Hospitality Industry and be eligible to work in the UK at the end of their degree.
