Pret’s Big Experience Week will offer participants exposure to food production, customer service and financial control.
The announcement was made by the company’s HR director, Andrea Wareham, on CEO Clive Schlee’s blog. Wareham recently advised the House of Lords’ Economic Affairs Committee and revealed that one in 50 Pret applicants is British.
On the blog, Wareham also announced that Pret will start increasing its recruitment advertising, double its School Leavers Programme, and share more stories on social media as part of a bid to ensure hospitality is seen by Brits as a serious career choice.
