VIP Hospitality Staff

Our VIP Hospitality team is the perfect addition to any luxury restaurant, where attention to detail is paramount and high-profile guests are frequent.

Trained by our Director, Paul Marcinkowski, during an intensive VIP Hospitality training course, our team’s expertise extends far beyond standard levels of service, instead, opting to create a memorable experience that goes beyond expectations, even for those most high-calibre of diners.

The course was in response to receiving increased requirements for extremely high-level hospitality staff (more than just your 2-plate butterfly service), and to reward our loyal and long-serving team members with further development and enhanced work opportunities.

Our VIP Hospitality team work across the country, including at the Arc Brasserie in Wembley Stadium. You can read our case study on the service that we provide. Following the success of The Arc brasserie in Wembley Stadium, our Lead People Operations Manager, Rob Butler, is now the Key Implementation Manager for new restaurants across the country.

How We Recruit & Train

We use a robust and thorough applicant tracking system (ATS) and have worked with the developer to create a bespoke onboarding process. 

Vacancy

We can place vacancies on our website which links to Indeed and other job boards. These can be targeted to various geographies. Vacancies meet all legal requirements including job roles and rates of pay.

Application

There are two routes to apply for Arc, the first is by applying online before being invited to an assessment session. The second allows candidates to submit a video application, should their geographic location or circumstances mean they cannot attend in person.

Assessment Session

Our assessment sessions cover all things Arc, from our story, vision, type of clients and code of conduct to practical training for various positions. We look for individuals who are friendly, engaged and confident in interacting with others. 

Training 

All candidates are given training on COSHH, Manual Handling, Food Safety & Allergens. Hospitality skills are assessed from induction level (3 plate service/5 plate clear, tray service etc) and additional skills are noted (e.g. Barista)
