Hundreds of waiters raced nationwide as part of National Waiters’ Day 2017
Three hundred waiters ran in this year’s National Waiters’ Day race in Hyde Park, as Fred Sirieix led the celebration of front of house professionals and careers.
The fifth year of National Waiters’ Day (16th May 2017) saw activities take place from London to Edinburgh. On Twitter, the hashtag #NWD2017 was used by countless hospitality businesses and professionals, trending in the UK top 10 on Twitter. All of this came as part of the nationwide campaign, which showcased the hard work and dedication of front of house staff. The day aimed to change perceptions around these roles and highlighted the rewarding career progression routes that hospitality offers.
Umbrella Training was delighted to attend the event in Hyde Park and have a stand where we made smoothies and chatted to people about careers in hospitality and apprenticeships with Umbrella. Sam Coulstock FIH, Business Relations Director at Umbrella Training said “We was really excited to be part of the event this year and to see so many people celebrate the careers of people in Food and Beverage, it was a great day!”.
Fred Sirieix, General Manager at Galvin at Windows and founder of the day, said: “I was excited to once again lead the race and celebrations in Hyde Park this 16th May – to be celebrating our fifth year of National Waiters’ Day was 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. With all the opportunities available, you can work hard and be rewarded with success – there has never been a more exciting time to join this special industry.”
