The Hub at 16 Hospitality - Rookie Night

Our talented team of ‘Rookies’ on our training programme, The Hub, invited members of the local community to The Oyster Catcher to enjoy an evening organised and managed by them.

The event was organised as part of The Hub, a hands-on training programme available across all of 16 Hospitality’s sites, open to all who are passionate about pursuing a career in hospitality.

On the evening, seven ‘Rookies’ impressed guests with a delicious menu that they had designed, expertly prepared and served.

As well as being a success for all ‘Rookies’ involved, the event was the perfect occasion for The Hub Training Programme’s first ever graduation as Aiden Reid transformed from trainee to a full-time employee of The Swan in Tarporley.

We’re proud of all the ‘Rookies’ and team members who helped to make the evening such a huge success, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for those talented individuals.  

The Hub

Our hospitality training programme is open to all ages, whether 18 or 65, all year round. The only requirements are that applicants hold no previous experience and have a strong work ethic.

As well as gaining formal qualifications accredited by City & Guilds, ‘rookies’ will experience what it means to work in the day-to-day operation of hospitality venues, as well as have the unique opportunity to experience exciting and informative external trips with a range of established hospitality partners.

“What we want to offer at The Hub is not only a practical training programme but life-changing experiences, beginning with being handed an alarm clock to help with those early mornings and a ‘rookie’ badge. Those who succeed will not only receive graduation honours, they will receive a job guarantee at either one of our venues or one of our carefully selected partners.”
