I started my working life in a well-known pub group when I was 15. I was employed as a kitchen porter, but quickly got bored of this and moved to front of house where I worked as a food runner & bar back for a bit. From there I moved into branded restaurants, starting working weekends refilling a well-known salad bar, whilst at university studying computer science, and worked my way up through the business quickly all the way up to AGM. I stayed in the business for just over 10 years and learnt a lot along the way! After working in branded restaurants, I took a 3-week break from hospitality to try something different and hated it, so went straight back into it!
