What people are saying about us

During my 19 -year long tenure at Aitken Spence, I held various positions such as Corporate Trainee, Accountant, Manager, Deputy General Manager, Assistant Vice President then Vice President. In every position I held I had opportunity to learn and gained comprehensive all round knowledge in areas related to finance. Aitken Spence, in my opinion, is an equal opportunity employer which tremendously supports our efforts in climbing the career ladder, whilst broadening our knowledge; mostly by way of on the job and in house training opportunities. I was even given the opportunity to follow the NUS Standford executive training program on International Management, which helped me gain further insight to my line of work.

I’ve been with Aitken Spence since 2004 and have gained valuable experience in both hotel and travel trades. When you work with an organization that is as renowned in the travel industry, it paves the way for personal recognition and opens doors to immense possibilities, things you wouldn’t otherwise be exposed to.

I started off as a corporate trainee and became a manager within the space of 5 years. I get to work with a range of employees, from Managing Directors to clerical staff, and that is something I love about my job. There is just so much room to learn, experiment with new ideas and explore new avenues within the Company.

My journey with Aitken Spence has been for two decades, 20 years to be exact and it has been a remarkable journey. From the very beginning, I’ve represented the Company at many leading international culinary competitions, it’s given me a platform to develop and display my creativity and skills. Throughout this journey I have also helped young chefs to develop their culinary skills and our latest achievements being the most outstanding hotel team in Sri Lanka and Maldives in Culinary Art Competitions. Here, the potential to grow is immense.
