LFC to share catering and hospitality expertise with local colleges
Liverpool FC is teaming up with local colleges across Merseyside to offer catering students the opportunity to work alongside the club's senior chefs and hospitality team and learn more about stadium catering and the hospitality business.
LFC will be visiting Hugh Baird College, Southport College, Liverpool City College and St Helens College over the coming months to deliver live dining experiences where students will work alongside LFC chefs and hospitality managers to deliver the finest matchday hospitality to diners at their college restaurant.
As well as building their suite of catering skills, students will also visit Anfield and take a tour of its state-of-the art kitchens and catering facilities. LFC chefs will then assist students with food preparation while offering training and advice based on years of personal experience to those wishing to pursue a career in the industry.
Hospitality students will be invited to help the club’s event and hospitality team prepare everything required for the event front of house. Students will also be given a presentation on possible job opportunities available at the club and within the stadium business. Anfield’s executive head chef, Chris Marshall, and recruitment and retention manager, Emma Hulme, will then join the students for a Q&A session.
Commenting on the live dining experiences, Paul Cuttill, general manager of hospitality, tourism and events at LFC, said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with local catering colleges to offer students the opportunity to learn more about the evolution of the stadium catering business while helping to develop their skills in a live dining environment. We also want to make students aware of what job opportunities are available to them within the sporting and stadium business industry.”
