Week beginning May 14th - Matthew

Unfortunately we are saying goodbye to another one of our staff members, because his visa is about to expire and he has to go home. Matthew is the young man you may have seen working the service area. He came to us late last year, after completing a 12 month scholarship at a leading London five star hotel that he won back in Australia when he was studying hospitality.

He found that while five star service was great, it is the cafe life that he enjoys so much, and yes, he wishes to open his own cafe one day.

When a person applies for a position with you who has that understanding of what the fine details mean in service, it makes for a very happy employer indeed. I am lucky enough to have employed a few of them. Rhea, Catherine, Krysty, Emma, Missy, Jessica and Justin to name a few and I am sure that like the people before him, Matthew will go onto even greater things in the future.

He is known for knowing everyone's name, a friendly face in the morning, an efficient and calm operator when under the pump, for having cool t-shirts as well as being dedicated and passionate about hospitality. If he comes to you for a job, I highly recommend him.

Away away Matthew, we wish you all the best. Well done.
