Fo - Gordon's Wine Bar
“I’ve been a bartender at Gordon’s for seven months. In that time I’ve been picking up skills that I'm going to use for the rest of my life. Things like finding the confidence to speak to people all day through to how to make a great cocktail.”
Jade - BAFTA
"After I finished my GCSEs I wasn't sure what to do next. My Mum suggested a catering course and I managed to get on a placement at BAFTA, I really haven't looked back. I love seeing my cooking and time management skills improve week to week."
Joseisa - Marriot Park Lane
"I'm really proud to be working in such a famous hotel. My English wasn't great when I joined but the team helped me learn, they really do feel like an extra family. My plan is to retire soon, but I'll probably carry on doing a few hours a week to keep me busy."
Chris - The Arber Garden
“It’s incredible how much of the world looks to London’s bar and restaurant scene for inspiration. We’re often ahead of the curve when it comes to trends, which is why pretty early on in my hospitality career I knew I wanted to be in the heart of that."
Luca - The Arber Garden
"Flexibility around when I work has always been key to me. When I started as a bartender, I'd pick up extra shifts around my university studies. From there I've been trusted with new projects and now I help design the interiors for each of our new venues."
Melissa - Marriot Park Lane
"I started working in hospitality in France, then got the opportunity to move to London. It really does feel like everyday is a chance to learn something new. Since joining I've taken a few courses which has helped me move towards a supervisor role."
Joanna - Marriot Park Lane
"When I first started I had this impression of hospitality being nothing but shouting chefs and long shifts. I had no idea there are so many skilled people who want to help me improve. Now I know I could do this job anywhere in the world, which is an amazing feeling."
Harvey - BAFTA
"There are two parts of this job I love the most. First, I know when a shift has gone well because I can see people enjoying themselves in my bar. Second, it's being able to clock off after a shift and go straight out into Soho, we're in the middle of it all here"
