The Greyhound Beaconsfield launches hospitality mentoring scheme

The Greyhound pub and restaurant in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, has launched a mentoring scheme aiming to encourage more young people to consider careers within the hospitality industry.

As part of the Greyhound Hospitality Programme (GHP), proprietor Daniel Crump will run a series of talks in schools, outlining his experience in the hospitality industry and demonstrating what it takes to work both front of house and in the kitchen.

Crump will also be accompanied by members of the Greyhound team, including head chef James Askew and co-proprietor and sommelier Margriet Vandezande-Crump.

As well as teaching young people about the importance of hospitality and informing them about opportunities within the sector, students will also be invited to the restaurant for hands-on training.

Each student will have their own plan of action depending on their interests, with opportunities to shadow chefs and other kitchen staff, as well as front of house and bar staff.

Daniel Crump said: "We're excited to connect with the next generation of hospitality professionals and promote what this industry is all about.

"As well as being there to mentor students and assist in any advice they may need, we hope to also offer talented young people the opportunity to work with the Greyhound in the future.

"I know how this sector can open so many doors for people who are keen to learn, develop and travel the world."

Margriet Vandezande-Crump added: "The industry is so much more than just a job people do to fill gaps in their careers. It offers experiences which are second to none. We cannot wait to start sharing some of our stories with the next generation."
