Discover Novotel hotels
Novotel, the AccorHotels group’s mid-scale brand, has nearly 400 hotels and resorts in 60 countries, located at the heart of major international cities, in business areas and tourist destinations.
With a homogenous service in all its hotels, Novotel contributes to the well-being of business and leisure travellers: spacious and adaptable rooms, balanced meals 24/7, meeting rooms, caring staff, dedicated children’s areas and fitness rooms.
Novotel hotels are also pioneers of sustainable development by participating in the Green globe global certification programme.
Testimony of Anna Irmer
Receptionist at the Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten and currently in immersion for one year at the Novotel London Waterloo to accelerate her career.
I joined the group being receptionist at the Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten. My manager knew that I wanted to work in an English-speaking country to improve my English and broaden my opportunities. So he spoke to me about the Globe trotter program.
I grabbed the opportunity to join the pilot program Novotel launched on August 1, and now I preside over the front desk at the Novotel London Waterloo.
Globe Trotter is a two-year program, with one year spent working in Novotel abroad. The program acts as a career accelerator, because I should be able to apply for a team management position as early as next fall.
At first, everything-the country, the language, the culture-was new. It was stressful. But Accor took care of my arrival and I was able to take my time to find a flat so I could concentrate fully on my work.
I have to adapt to other ways of working, and in addition I am learning new tasks, those of a front office team leader: I have access to the safe, I manage group outings, etc. I had to learn all the specific hotel vocabulary. Fortunately, my colleagues, who come from all over Europe, have really helped.
I will return to the Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten. I will then spend another two months there before thinking about managerial positions that Novotel could offer me.
What is great about this program is that in one year I learn as much as in two or three years in a traditional position!
