Stephen McPhillips - who attended Wellington College between 2007 and 2014 – is off to work for Walt Disney World. He will be working in the’ UK Pavilion of the World Showcase’ in Epcot as a Cultural Representative. This is part of his placement year from his degree in International Travel and Tourism Management at the Ulster of University in Coleraine.

It is a very impressive achievement, given that only 3 candidates got the job out of 7 000 applicants across the United Kingdom. The interview process included application forms, group interviews and face-to-face interviews in London. Having secured the post, Stephen will be working within the food and beverage team in the UK themed restaurant ‘The Rose & Crown’ exchanging cultural stories from Northern Ireland with guests from around the world and promoting what Northern Ireland has to offer.
