Gold Service Scholarship extends application deadline

The Gold Service Scholarship has extended its deadline by which all applications from young hospitality professionals can be submitted.

Entries to the prestigious competition for the year 2014 are now being accepted until 8 October 2013, as part of the scheme's aim to encourage more young people to take up a career in front of house. The previous deadline had been the end of September.

Uniting this year to help support the competition are AB Hotels chairman Willy Bauer, deputy master of the household at Buckingham Palace Edward Griffiths, and BaxterStorey chairman Alastair Storey (pictured).

Storey commented: "The Gold Service Scholarship is truly unique and a fantastic opportunity to learn from the very best. We want to encourage young professionals from all areas of service to feel passionate and proud to work in hospitality and believe the Scholarship goes a long way in showcasing the possibilities a career in hospitality can provide them - whatever their service background."

The 2014 winner of the four-part competition â€' whose heats will include basic service tasks, a demonstration of skills and a Q&A with the judges â€' will be announced at the Claridge's awards ceremony in February next year, following a final round of judging at The Connaught, Mayfair one week before.

Last year's Inaugural Scholarship winner, Rebecca Dibben, has worked at the Buckingham Palace Garden Party as part of her prize; is also set to tour Laurent-Perrier vineyards in Champagne, France; and spend two weeks at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Bangkok.
