Celebrating emerging talent

Creating exciting, memorable food and service experiences is what CH&CO is all about. Our expertise and enthusiasm span the diverse hospitality sector, including workplaces, destinations, venues, events, livery, education and healthcare.

People are always at the heart of hospitality and CH&CO. Our inclusive culture focuses on inspiring and developing all our people to grow with us – from the chefs and on-site teams serving our customers to our people working in our offices supporting our operations and clients.

From apprentice to director, people will succeed and grow with the inspiration and support to develop their skills and knowledge to be brilliant at their job. We encourage our people with the right opportunities and confidence to grow professionally and personally. We also champion hospitality as an exciting career option, working with industry partners to raise awareness of the fantastic pathways and limitless potential available to young people.

Inspiring and engaging emerging talent is very important as the industry advances in a changed landscape. We’re proud to be headline sponsor of the Acorn Awards and lead the way in celebrating the exciting young talent in our industry and nurturing the next dynamic generation of hospitality leaders.
