Originally I began working in the hospitality industry along side my studies when I was 16. I fell in love with the fast paced challenging and energetic environment of hospitality instantly. When I finished University I began to look and explore Graduate Schemes, and those in hospitality. Mitchells and Butlers scheme stood out immediately to me ,as the values they hold such as passion, pride, innovation, drive and engagement mirrored my own. Now a year and half into my scheme I have not only developed, learnt and grown as a manager, but also a person. Most importantly the scheme allows you drive your own development and really take charge of your own career. It combines on the job learning with workshops to give you all the skills you need.Now not only do I have the role as assistant manager but also a district trainer, allowing me to help, support and train others. Even though Mitchell and Butlers is a large company it feels like a family at the same time. There is always help and support when you need it and people are always there to help, develop and push your progression. I look forward to what the next year and a half brings.
