Hospitality Guild highlights career opportunities in Food and Beverage Service

Hospitality Guild highlights career opportunities in Food and Beverage Service

The Hospitality Guild has launched a video and competition to raise awareness of the excellent career opportunities in Food and Beverage Service.

Starring former Centre of Excellence student Bunmi Okolosi and shot on location at South Downs College, Galvin at Windows, Babylon at the Roof Gardens, The Lockhart and Cinnamon Kitchen, the video aims to highlight some of the exciting places to which a career front of house can take an individual.

The ultimate objective of the campaign is to encourage students to sign up on a Food and Beverage Service course at one of the Hospitality Guild Accredited Centres of Excellence: New College Nottingham, City College Norwich, Bournemouth and Poole College, University College Birmingham, Runshaw College and South Downs College.

As an added incentive, the Guild is offering four lucky students the chance to experience working life at one of the UK's best restaurants with one overall winner jetting off to experience working at a high-profile establishment in Europe with all expenses paid. 

Suzy Jackson, executive director of the Hospitality Guild said: “Interest in Food and Beverage Service has been growing of late, helped by high profile TV shows such as Michel Roux’s Service and by events such as National Waiters Day. This is brilliant news for this fast-moving sector that has so many exceptional opportunities for fast career advancement.

“People like Bunmi are fabulous ambassadors for this role – he’s been in the sector since graduating from college and has now opened his own business. It’s our aim to show young people and their parents that Food and Beverage Service can be a great, fulfilling career, not just a job.”
