Young people can get involved in a new scheme which has been created thanks to a new partnership between Buzzworks Holdings and Apprenticeship in Hospitality Scotland (AHS). 

Buzzworks, which currently employs over 500 staff, will be working alongside AHS to deliver a two-year Modern Apprenticeship in Hospitality Services.

Anyone aged between 17-24 years old, can benefit from an industry-led hospitality apprenticeship programme developed to offer an alternative to university.  

For FIVE years in a row Buzzworks has been named in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for. 

Buzzworks will now be offering staff the rare opportunity to take part in the apprenticeship programme to achieve recognised qualifications within hospitality.

Head of People at Buzzworks, Nicola Watt said: “As a proud partner of the Apprenticeship in Hospitality Scotland, we aim to inspire the next generation of hospitality professionals and support them in building a successful long-term career within the industry. 

“Despite a tough 18 months for everyone within the sector, we are committed to ensuring that the hospitality industry will come out the other side stronger and bigger than ever. As a business we are excited to both welcome and work alongside the future of hospitality within our venues and we can’t wait to see where this innovative partnership leads us.” 

Successful applicants will spend six months in four key departments to develop the necessary skills and abilities to achieve a SCQF Level 5 in Hospitality Services, whilst AHS will also provide a programme to restaurants through its Apprenticeship in Professional Cookery - which will see young professionals complete two years in Professional Cookery.  

Angela Newton, AHS Co-Ordinator, said: “‘The Apprenticeship in Hospitality Scotland is delighted to welcome Buzzworks as a new partner and look forward to working together with them to support their new apprentices” 

Applications are now open to 17-24-year-olds for this world class programme. For more information, please visit Apprenticeship in Hospitality.
