Accor Indigenous Program a Winner for Cherie

Cherie Stubbs-Timbery won the HM Award for Best Food and Beverage Associate last week, just one year after completing Accor’s Indigenous Jobs Ready Program.

 As food and beverage team leader at the Swiss Grand Resort and Spa at Bondi, Cherie says that Academie Accor and its indigenous employment and training programs were instrumental in giving her the skills to win this prestigious award. She is a strong ambassador for indigenous employment and has been selected to represent the state of NSW in Accor’s Indigenous Cadetship Program.

“I am very grateful for the support Accor has given me in developing my career in hospitality and in providing the training I needed to achieve the highest levels of service,” Cherie said. “Accor really is committed to improving opportunities for Indigenous staff and I could never have afforded to do this sort of training on my own.”

Cherie said she now looks forward to being a role model to other young Indigenous people seeking jobs in hospitality and will act as a mentor to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff within the group.

Academie Accor is the training and development arm of Accor and recently launched a new Job Ready program that provides upskilling for Indigenous staff to ensure they can progress their careers within the group and to help with retention of Indigenous staff.

Since launching its Indigenous Employment Program in 2001, Accor has led the way in the tourism industry, providing full- or part-time jobs for over 600 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
