Any individual or company may use the services offered by a private independent catering service for hosting private parties and events. Many people who have previously worked in the catering and hospitality industry, go on to open their own company, offering professional and experienced services to suit all needs.

Projects can range from small wedding receptions or wakes, to large corporate events, therefore the employment opportunities offered will be hugely varied. Most jobs will fall in the catering category, however there could be opportunities in events management and interior design.

Independent companies can specialise in almost any type of events:

  • Wedding planning/catering
  • Funeral wakes
  • Children's birthday parties
  • Private celebrations
  • Sporting events
  • Outdoor catering

Even small independent companies can sometimes need to employ a larger workforce for a specific event. There is also a lot of money to be made from events. Therefore there are plenty of opportunities, in all areas, both on a full-time and temporary basis.
