Because we're convinced there are no age restrictions to share the passion of our profession, we offer young talents, interns or apprentices the opportunity to make their own contribution to our Group's success.

All talents are leaders at AccorHotels.

Train with the best

Taking an internship or apprenticeship at AccorHotels is an opportunity to become fully immersed in stimulating projects and continually learn. It also means joining the ranks of a leader in its sector and discovering a unique company culture in which people are placed front and centre. Lastly and most importantly, it means training through experience and unveiling your talent by learning from the best.

Getting to know each other !

To foster dialogue with students and potential candidates, we hold get-togethers at our Paris head office, the Students@AccorHotels Meet-ups, to discuss strategic subjects in the hotel industry. Our Group's experts make themselves available, providing a unique opportunity to ask them questions and talk to our ambassador employees in a relaxed setting. To cap it all, participants can learn about our innovative work spaces on a guided tour around Sequana Tower in Issy-les-Moulineaux.

If you don't want to miss out on the next session, start following AccorHotels.Jobs on social media!

Two-way feedback

At AccorHotels, feedback isn't a one-way street. To ensure our interns and apprentices get the best possible experience, we have set up a systematic feedback system that allows them to give their view on their internship or apprenticeship with us. The use of this VOS (Voice of Students) platform is a concrete example of our philosophy that if you look after your employees, they'll look after your customers: our service culture doesn't just apply to our customers, our young talents also need to experience our Feel Welcome spirit.

New Gen Leaders Asia

In response to the growth of our Asian market, we've developed a career accelerator programme specifically dedicated to young talents in Asia who have graduated from hotel schools or management institutions. This 12-month programme, which is personalised to each individual's profile and ambitions, aims to develop the next generation of AccorHotels operational managers in Asia. During two 6-month internships in a hotel's key departments, young talents receive training while working on strategic projects and rapidly develop their skills thanks to the support of an accredited mentor.

If you'd like to take part in this young graduate programme in Asia,  please submit your application to Suhailah Samsudin, in English, by email.

We're out and about all year round to meet you at a variety of student forums. We also have close ties with schools, where our employees give presentations, look at case studies and success stories, and sometimes even provide complete courses. We even give students the opportunity to examine key issues of our strategy and we reward the best suggestions. This is the whole idea behind the online student competition called "Take Off!"
