What's the best bit about your job?

Weddings, 100%. You get to share the best day of somebody's life! You can get those in the restaurant, but weddings are a memory for life.

How do you handle the long hours?

Working long hours and being busy ensure that I make the most of any spare time I do get. I don't sit on the sofa, wasting time. I enjoy the hours because I also have the cash to spend when I'm not working!

What does The Assembly House offer new staff?

You get to see all sides of the hospitality business! From the inside of bedrooms to conferences, all staff get to see all aspects, even summer temps. And there's always room to progress, if you want to do more, then we are here to support that growth.
