“Northern Ireland is famous for its warm welcome and hospitality, and the Apprentice Programme will sustain and develop the industry in the future" -  Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster

Cian Dornan, 2015 Apprentice Testimonial

“From the very start our training was fast paced, but incredibly organised. I have been looking after the sides and the garnish as well as helping to prep the other sections and I’m now working towards prepping the meat and fish for James Street South guests.

“It’s been an incredible year so far, but the highlight has been travelling to Paris with Niall for a major food exhibition, where we worked with Invest NI showcasing local produce which are the hallmark of the James Street menus.”

“Always listen to what you are being told, and take it on board asking as many questions as you can along the way. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I would encourage anyone who is serious about a career in the hospitality industry to apply.”
