A group of unemployed young people from the Glasgow area have completed Greene King and Prince’s Trust’s Get into Hospitality programme. Aged between 16 and 25, the candidates spent three weeks learning about many aspects of hospitality, including guest service, alcohol licensing laws and food preparation, gaining skills during their placements in Greene King pubs across Glasgow.

Rooney Anand, Greene King’s Chief Executive Officer, said: ‘It’s great to see the success of this programme with The Prince’s Trust and I would like congratulate our team members in our pubs in Glasgow who have championed the course and mentored the students.’

Martina Milburn CBE, chief executive of The Prince’s Trust, added:  ‘The programme has been a great success and we look forward to working closely with Greene King to help more young people gain workplace skills. Congratulations to all those who have completed the course.’

Gemma Shergold (pictured left with Greene King’s Operations Director, Kenny Mackenzie) is one of the young people to have completed the course in Glasgow.  Now working at the city’s Cairns Bar, she said: ‘Although I had no experience of working in the hospitality industry, I was keen to get involved. The programme was really insightful and I would definitely recommend it to others.’

The next course to be completed in Scotland will be in Edinburgh in September.
