National Waiters’ Day is to return for its fifth year on May 16th to celebrate and promote front of house roles.
Written by Isabel Finch
The campaign, led by The Springboard Charity and Fred Sirieix, general manager at Galvin at Windows, will include events at Hyde Park, London, career talks and taster days at hospitality businesses and a social media campaign on Twitter with the hashtag #NWD2017.
Fred Sirieix, also host of TV programme First Dates, said: “I’m so excited to once again lead the race and celebrations in Hyde Park this May - to be celebrating our fifth year of National Waiters’ Day is a wonderful milestone!
“It’s essential that we promote the ocean of career opportunities hospitality has to offer, celebrate the hard work of front of house professionals, and encourage more people to begin great careers in hospitality.”
The day will feature a waiters’ race with waiters running through Hyde Park and other locations across the UK.
The aim of National Waiters’ Day is to change perceptions of front of house roles and highlight the career progression hospitality offers.
The Springboard Charity helps the young and unemployed into employment in the hospitality industry.
