The Hub at 16 Hospitality - Butchery Day

Our Rookies visited Home Farm to find out all about preparing meat.

The trainees took a tour of the free-range farm, where they learnt about everything from animal feeds and measuring the pigs, to preparing the meat. Their butchery skills were also put to the test when our recruits prepped the meat, made the sausages and cooked them ready to be judged by 16 Hospitality’s senior team!
The Hub is our in-house training programme which runs across all 16 Hospitality sites. This Rookie training day saw ten trainees from The Crown, The Oyster Catcher and The White Eagle attend to understand the process of how the food is produced before it even reaches the kitchen.
A big thank you to Alison and Dave Everett at Home Farm for an inspirational and informative day.

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.”
