Once in the top division, always in the top division

Hotel Berlin, Berlin supports as “House of Talents” exceptional talents


Denise Pohlmann is an up-and-coming talent. At just 21 years old, this young lady has already made it into the top flight, in a sporting as well as professional sense. Since January 2010, the goalkeeper from Tennis Borussia Berlin not only plays in the top division of the Bundesliga, but with the Hotel Berlin, Berlin, has also found an on-the-job training provider belonging to the top division of Germany’s hotel industry.


In the morning, the prospective hotel specialist goes about her varied tasks in the smart uniform of the Hotel Berlin, Berlin at the renowned hotel on Lützowplatz. In the afternoon, she’s on the football pitch dressed in comfortable sportswear. “The balancing act between my apprenticeship and sports training is only possible because I have the support of my training provider, the Hotel Berlin, Berlin. In concrete terms, this means that I am only scheduled for the morning shift, so that I can spend my afternoons training. And my weekend shifts are worked around my fixtures and the matches", explains the first-year apprentice. A total of 47 young men and women are currently completing apprenticeship programmes in three different occupational fields at the Hotel Berlin, Berlin.


The Hotel Berlin, Berlin provides more than just an apprenticeship and on-the-job training. “We are the House of Talents, which signifies, that we actively support potential talents here at the HotelBerlin, Berlin to grow and develop in their specific areas of interest creating a win-win situation between job and personal interest”, says the hotel’s Managing Director, Cornelia Kausch, summing up the philosophy of the hotel in a nutshell. This begins to a certain extent with the selection of the apprentices. It was more by chance that football-mad Denise Pohlmann came to Cornelia Kausch's attention in 2008, as at this time, the Hotel Berlin, Berlin was an official sponsor of Tennis Borussia Berlin's “Under 15” team and had made a donation of €20,000 to the Berlin club.


Denise Pohlmann has been playing since 1995 and cannot imagine a life without football. Her entire family – mother, father and four siblings – devote themselves passionately to the beautiful game and the future hotel specialist has her passion for football in her genes.

Whatever she does, whether professionally or privately, she always plays in the top division.
