One Hundred Knights, the hospitality and leisure operator behind Llangollen based Three Eagles, Tyn Dwr Hall and The Royal Hotel, is on the lookout for recruits for their newly launched Hospitality & Kitchen Academy.
Launched in 2020 by Director of restaurants and bars, Adam Gaunt-Evans, the vision is to train and develop the next generation of chefs, front of house and hospitality professionals in the local region.
“I grew up in Llangollen and received a fantastic apprenticeship under mentor Dai Davies, supported by Coleg Cambria in Wrexham” explains Adam.
“Learning a trade was my ticket to a new exciting life and once I’d received my training, I was sent off to the bright lights of London, something I would never have been prepared for without a proper apprenticeship.”
“Being a chef has given me the opportunities to work in seven different countries and really see the world. Cooking is a fun, creative job you can get very passionate about.”
Adam and the management team behind One Hundred Knights are passionate about giving back to the industry and nurturing their own talent.
“Once you’ve learned your skills, the world’s literally your oyster – yet we are also creating dozens of really exciting new roles in our local area over the coming years with the addition of the Royal hotel and some very exciting restaurant projects, opportunities you would have to move away for a generation ago.”
Katie Ince, Operations Manager for One Hundred Knights and Restaurant Manager at the Three Eagles said;
“Hospitality isn’t all clearing plates and serving food, there is so much more. Not only do you get great customer interaction, or a real buzz from a busy shift, but the skills you can learn in this trade are phenomenal.
“From mixology to marketing, from HR to business management, from social media management to stock taking – the opportunities to learn are endless. The academy alongside Coleg Cambria can support our youngest recruits through these avenues, whilst providing the opportunity to work in a great environment surrounded by passionate people who will take you under their wings!”
