Julita Jeremie has been promoted to the role of cluster director of human resources for all three Hilton properties in the Seychelles, making her the second Seychellois female employee to assume a senior position within Hilton.
The promotion adds to the measures taken by Hilton in the Seychelles to raise the number of women in managerial positions, an initiative resulting from its participation in a conference entitled 'Women in Leadership' held in May 2017.
Bringing 14 years of administrative expertise to her new role, Jeremie will oversee all HR & training tasks across three properties: Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa on Silhouette Island, Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa near Beau Vallon Bay, and DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles – Allamanda Resort & Spa in Mahé.
“It is an honour to be given the position of cluster director of HR of Hilton Seychelles resorts. This promotion is especially gratifying because it is with the Hilton family that I kicked off my career within the hospitality industry. As a Seychellois, I feel fortunate to be a part of a hotel brand that is dedicated towards developing local talent,” said Jeremie.
Jeremie has worked with the Hilton group since 2011, when she held the post of human resources manager at Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa. She moved up the career ladder in 2015 by taking up the role of HR & training manager in the resort.
In her new role, Julita will be responsible for implementing and updating corporate training programmes in accordance with Hilton standards, track and audit employee training records, and conduct meetings to review performance trends.
This is the second notable career advancement within the Hilton Seychelles properties in this quarter alone, following the hotel group’s initiative to promote local female employees in the hospitality industry. In June, as reported by Hotelier Middle East, Doreen D’Souza became the first Seychellois and African female to be appointed the top role of resort manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles – Allamanda Resort & Spa.
