A fast-paced growth employment area, customer-focused, hard-work, and great fun!

A word from us

Nationally, hospitality is the 4th largest employer representing 10 per cent of the workforce, and sector research says the UK food service sector will be worth £56.3bn by 2019.

Our Huddersfield Centre is ideally placed between two of the UK’s regional hotspots for development – Leeds and Manchester.

The catering and hospitality market is constantly changing.

Our training focuses on developing professional practical skills in our state-of-the-art training kitchens and bakery.

The facilities rival most leading fine dining restaurants.

Our commercial restaurant Landings 72, supports a modern approach to cooking and service.

We source much of our produce through local suppliers; sustainability is something we’re keen to promote to our customers as well as our students.

All our staff are industry experienced and use their professional links to bring in local restaurateurs to judge student competitions.

All our students are expected to deliver at a high standard.

We want to attract the best, most committed students to join us and be part of the team’s success.

So if you share our passion for good food and great service, we look forward to your application.
