Supporting clients and promoting career paths in hospitality

31 May 2022

Harrison prides itself in delivering a positive catering experience by creating fresh, balanced meals serviced by exceptional people. We are also committed to working closely with clients to support them and provide additional value to our overall service wherever possible.

We recently participated in a Careers event organised by one of our clients to raise awareness for students aged 11-18 about their opportunities when they leave school. We were delighted to support this event to help promote the benefits of a career in hospitality and the incredible scope this can provide young people, along with a set of transferrable skills that can be used throughout the world.

Robyn Langdon, Assistant Headteacher, Cecil Jones Academy, said:“Cecil Jones Academy would like to thank Harrison Catering for attending our school careers event.

The Harrison staff in attendance were wonderful! They were enthusiastic, informative and interacted so well with all our students. The stand engaged our students and left many of them considering a career in hospitality and catering. We would love to work with Harrison Catering again in the future and would most definitely welcome Harrison back to our career’s events.”

Supporting our client at this event provided an excellent platform to inspire the next generation of catering professionals and share the career paths and training opportunities available within the hospitality industry sector.  

At Harrison, our love of the hospitality industry inspired us to establish the Geoffrey Harrison Foundation in 2011, which supports aspiring young people to advance their education and learning in the industry, providing valuable life skills and a pathway to a very rewarding, creative, successful career.

Over the past decade, the Foundation has supported over 1,381 aspiring young chefs, typically years 9, 10 and 11. The courses are delivered on Saturday mornings at Westminster Kingsway College, University of West London or Loughborough College and last between 5 to10 weeks (depending on the location). We are delighted to inspire the next generation of creative chefs, who will become powerful advocates for preparing fresh, quality food within the industry.
