Peter Scanlon

Name Peter Scalon
Company Marriott International

Peter experienced difficulties at home, which led to periods of homelessness. He left school at 16 with few qualifications.

Thanks to the Prince’s Trust ‘Get into Hospitality’ programme and Movement to Work, Peter discovered his love of working with people through a placement and training at Marriott International.

His mentor, Claire Fisher, an HR manager at Marriott and Movement to Work monitor, said that Marriott was impressed with his confidence and the way he presented himself, especially as he was the youngest in the team in which he was working. Peter went on to succeed not only on his hospitality programme but he improved on his school qualifications too.

He was given the opportunity to work in two hotels and was pleased he had the opportunity to compare how each one worked.

Peter has now completed the training programme and is pursuing a full-time role with Marriott.
