The Ivy Collection has recently agreed to add their associated brands to the Springboard Charity Showcase Employer Programme for 2023. This brings on board Bill’s Restaurants, Birley Clubs, Caprice Holdings . These additional restaurants and clubs will offer Springboard trainees a wider scope of location and work placements as part of their employability courses, which incorporate mock interviews and site industry visits.

Johanna Wimmer, People Engagement Manager for all four brands, said “It has been a pleasure partnering with Springboard, to be able to make a difference in people’s lives and to give them a taste of this exciting industry we work in. Adding our additional brands enables us to showcase the variety of roles and experiences hospitality has to offer – there is something for everyone.”

Chris Gamm, CEO at Springboard, said: “It is a delight to have the full suite of brands associated with the Ivy Collection on board as Springboard Showcase Employers. It is very aspirational for our trainees to visit and experience some of the UK’s best hospitality businesses.”

Most recently, Granary Square Brasserie, London hosted a site visit for eight candidates from the Springboard Skill Up, Step Up course. The visiting trainees were delighted with the warm and generous welcome from Matt Crook and the team and the next step is to discuss work placements.

Matt Crook, Back of House (BOH) Training and Development Manager at The Ivy Collection, added “Working together with Springboard and their candidates is important to me as I can pass on my passion and share my 25year hospitality experience with them. Springboard gives people fantastic opportunities and can make a huge difference to their lives, it gives them a taster of what hospitality has to offer, and hopefully they will be driving the industry for a further 25 years.”
