National Waiters’ Day has come and gone. We got the pleasure of meeting First Dates star, Austin Ventour, take part in the waiters’ race and test people on their cocktail making skills. It was a great day to get out and meet the amazing people who make hospitality such an amazing industry to work in.
National Waiters’ Day, founded by Fred Sirieix in partnership with the hospitality charity Springboard, was set up with the idea of celebrating the many opportunities for development and the calibre of staff providing excellent service within the hospitality industry. All the proceeds from the event go back to grassroots to support Springboard’s Food and Beverages programme which helps inspire and educate students who seek a career in hospitality.
Seasoned waiters and waitresses were invited to the event to showcase their skills in the professional waiters’ race and to speak with attendees about their personal experiences within the industry. Hospitality is an inclusive industry and it was great to see people from all walks of life attending and taking part in the day. As one of the many employers exhibiting at the event, we were impressed by the hunger displayed by job seekers.
