Why the Restaurant sector?

In restaurants and bars, we are all about creating experiences for our guests. We know that people come to us to celebrate, to commemorate, to make memories and even to fall in love! It’s a huge responsibility knowing that during the time that guests are with us we have an opportunity to wow them with the perfect environment and some fabulous food and drink. If it sounds easy, it’s not but it is absolutely fun.

 

Roles that we have plenty of are waiters, bartenders, chefs, and managers. To support the success of each of our venues we also have support functions such as Marketing, Sales, HR, IT, Finance. And within all the roles and departments already mentioned, there are a plethora of even more specific roles that are reflective of an individual’s strengths.

 

Running a business in the hospitality industry is a fascinating combination of customer service, product provision, psychology and ambition. We are a fast-paced industry, always on the look-out for people who are bright, have good energy and who thrive on teamwork and collaboration. The scope for learning and development is broad, because even though hospitality has faced challenges, we are a pillar of communities and therefore are an industry that will always endure and must be invested in. A job in hospitality is the pathway to a fulfilling career!
