BaxterStorey, Holroyd Howe and Caterlink, all part of WSH Group, have united to launch a new Apprentice Academy, aiming to create more job opportunities for young people in the food and hospitality industry.
Working alongside HIT Training, the companies are aiming to create 50 roles in the first year, 100 in its second and more than 200 positions by 2018.
Two primary programmes will be launched: food service and professional cookery, which will see apprentices working across the UK in either front of house roles or kitchen based positions.
Alastair Storey, Chairman of WSH said: “Our business is built on the talent of our people. We place great emphasis on developing and nurturing individuals who are passionate, enthusiastic and willing to embrace what can be a hugely rewarding career in hospitality.
“The opportunities in this industry are often a well-kept secret. Our academy will provide individuals with the chance to get into a career which can be very financially rewarding, as well as offer specific benefits such as Monday to Friday hours, working in iconic locations.”
Skills Minister, Nick Boles has noted his approval: “Apprenticeships make absolute business sense while providing life changing opportunities for young people across the country.
“I am therefore delighted that BaxterStorey, Holroyd Howe and Caterlink are launching their new Apprentice Academy.”
