Two Edinburgh students who were the first to go through the new Apex Hotels and QMU Scholarship Programme have now been offered jobs within the company’s hotels, plus 1,500 each to further their postgraduate education.

Annie Fowden, 22, from Grassmarket, and Florencia Gago Bigñe, 21, from Portobello, began their management apprenticeships last February and have now been offered paid positions for the next 12 months.

Commenting on her appointment to the apprenticeship programme, Annie (pictured left), said: ‘ I plan to use this experience and my undergraduate degree to apply for the new Master in Public Administration at QMU.’

Florencia (above right), who is originally from Madrid in Spain, added: ‘Taking part in this new programme during my final year at QMU has helped me get a clearer picture of how the hospitality industry really works from the hotel perspective. I am now enrolling in the MBA Hospitality at QMU.’

Norman Springford, Managing Director of Apex Hotels, commented: ‘The two students who were offered positions at Apex Hotels have demonstrated excellent personal and professional skills that were developed at QMU and within Apex Hotels, and we look forward to the programme continuing in future.’
