We are delighted to announce that Phoebe Belcher is the first to complete our Management Training Program and did so with flying colours.
Born and brought up in Kenya, Phoebe developed a love for animals early on. Having been raised by parents in the safari industry, she spent many of her early years in the bush and most of those years on Loisaba. She has a passion for photography and has developed this skill during her spent in the bush
Phoebe joined Elewana Collection in 2016 taking on the role of Activities Coordinator at Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp and two years later, in 2018 was appointed as a Management Trainee, becoming our first candidate for our mentored training program in Kenya.
As a management trainees each commits to a set program of two years mentorship, during which time the trainee covers various areas of the lodge operations inclusive of guest experience, the different departments as well as supportive functions such as accounts, logistics, stores, compliance, licensing and human resources. After successful completion of the management trainee program each candidate will be appointed in junior management role in one of the Elewana properties.
Phoebe excelled during her training and completed all tasks ahead of schedule - to the point that Phoebe has graduated nearly ten months ahead of schedule, completing her program on the 31st of March. This is a major accolade and we are extremely proud of her and we would like to welcome Phoebe in her new appointment as Relief Manager as from the 1st April 2019.
