This year we launched the search for the Carlton Apprentice in October and four of our hotels put forward candidates to represent them. Apprentices from the Carlton Blanchardstown, Carlton Tralee, Carlton Dublin Airport and Carlton Shearwater Hotel have been working hard selling vouchers to their corporate clients since then, as well as building up their following through social media. But the real competition started this week as they all go head to head in shopping centres to compete to win the most vouchers.
On Monday morning our Apprentices set up their Christmas themed stands in Jervis Shopping Centre and Swords Pavilions Shopping Centre. I have seen some photos of the stands and they really have taken the Christmas theme seriously. I think I may have even seen one Apprentice dressed up as an elf! They have spent the week selling Carlton gift cards and looking at the results so far they are all doing really well. The competition will run right through the weekend so if you're in Dublin shopping over the next few days please show your support and buy a Carlton voucher!
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish them all the very best of luck for the rest of the week and may the best Apprentice win!
