Exciting hospitality apprenticeships available with local business

26 January 2017
Family run business, Time Well Spent, is offering six ambitious and committed people from a range of backgrounds the fantastic opportunity to train as an apprentice in one of their restaurants or pubs across Surrey and Sussex.

As well as providing quality service, the company aims to embrace and support their local communities with a particular emphasis on creating employment prospects for disadvantaged applicants. Time Well Spent maintains an all-inclusive policy, encouraging application from anyone who is keen to jump start their career in the hospitality industry, regardless of age, experience or background.

When Time Well Spent looked to take on their new apprentices, they turned to Central Sussex College for help. The company has set up a training academy in partnership with the college, where they will provide theoretical knowledge and first-hand industry experience to a team of apprentices. Opportunities are available in both Kitchen and Front of House services and apprentices will initially be based at their flagship pub, The Red Lion, in Betchworth, Surrey.

Marc Jones, owner of The Red Lion, commented “I believe that with the right approach, anyone can be a part of this industry. Our purpose at Time Well Spent is to create opportunities for those who may not have traditionally been given the chance to work within the Hospitality sector”.

Due to the pub’s rural location, Time Well Spent is planning to collect apprentices from Redhill Station as a means to support them with travel. Over time, opportunities will also arise for them to move across the different establishments in the pub group.
