The provision of all food and drink is a colossal career sector. Employees work in hotels, catering companies, private companies, public companies and even the government.

Restaurants, pubs, bars and nightclubs employ hundreds of thousands of staff and managers. This is an excellent sector for employing those with no prior experience in the career world and is open to rapid progression following demonstrations of capability.

Although chefs are the most synonymous when thinking of catering, there are many different avenues that can be taken and entry into this career path tends to be available and generally offers the ability to learn on the job. Even for chefs the range of options is vast, from running a kitchen for a private party for 300 to being an exclusive chef in a top Michelin starred restaurant.

In almost all cases experience, dedication and skill will see someone up through the ranks. This is an industry that rewards the best if they can show they truly are. The catering career can offer an enjoyable path to follow. Often those involved are young and dynamic and there is emphasis placed on teamwork.

Every outlet where food and drink services are provided and paid for falls within catering.
