No. We will need to meet to hear your goals and plans and get a general feel for who you are and what you are about...specifically what career in the bar/ restaurant chef or management sector are you seeking, what aspirations do you have, what areas are you willing to relocate to?
We need to discuss how we can help you achieve your aims, and that’s best achieved in person. Also, we’ll be more comfortable with putting you forward you to a valued client once we’ve met you in person.
Q: How long does an initial registration meeting last?
Usually a registration takes no more than 30 minutes, we’ll try and get you through the process as quickly as possible!
