          Helping you find a career in catering & hospitality

          The catering and hospitality industry covers food, drink and leisure businesses. At the heart of the work is ensuring customer's have the best experience. If you like helping people enjoy their leisure experiences, then this could be the industry for you.

          The roles in this industry vary considerably and cover everything related to food, drink and hospitality. Top sought-after jobs in this industry include:

          • Chefs
          • Catering/bar managers
          • Butchers
          • Bakers
          • Hotel managers

          There are a range of roles in this sector and numerous and a number of routes to get there.

          A lot of the work involves being front of house, so you'll need to be professional and have good levels of customer service. The environment can be highly pressured, especially if you're working in events or busy establishments, and you may have to deal with complaints.

          Entry-level roles can be comparatively easy to source, particularly in cities or large towns. However, like all industries, working your way up to management positions will require hard work and dedication.

          Shift work is common in this industry, particularly in catering where the work is dependent on specific events and venues, which makes the work flexible. Many roles will not have the typical 9-5 working pattern and you may be expected to work on the weekends.
