Compass launches Women in Food Ambassador Programme
Eight female chefs from across Compass will be put through a tailored training scheme to enhance their development, skills and growth within the business. Each ambassador will attend events and mentor an apprentice female chef who they will support in their career development.
Fiona Ryland, HR director at Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: “We are thrilled to be launching our Women in Food Ambassador Programme. Our eight ambassadors each have their own stories of where they are in their culinary journeys, with some juggling family life and their day-to-day jobs, to an apprentice focusing on their development.
“We hope the breadth of skills and experiences of our ambassadors will help encourage more women to consider becoming a chef, as well as supporting those who are already in the industry and wish to develop their careers further.”
The services company has an overall goal of women forming 50% of its chef workforce by 2020.
