London, 29 January 2018 – The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of premium late night bars and clubs with 57 venues across the UK, has today unveiled its comprehensive apprenticeship programme, created in partnership with HIT Training.
The new programme, available to those over the age of 16, comprises two different apprenticeships – Hospitality Team Member, Alcoholic Beverage Service (Level 2) and Hospitality Supervisor, Bar Supervision (Level 3). Through the partnership, Deltic aims to extend this to also include a Level 4 and Level 5 management-style qualification.
The programme will allow staff to develop their skills, enabling them to gain the qualifications and experiences to enjoy a longstanding and rewarding career within the business and late night leisure sector. The programme has been designed with Deltic’s culture, business demands and core values in mind.
Each candidate will follow a 12-month programme, coming together with peers for quarterly workshops delivered by HIT Training, giving the opportunity for candidates to see and learn from a different aspect to their day to day site.
Peter Marks, Chief Executive of The Deltic Group said: “The night time economy is a fun and dynamic sector with a wealth of long-term career opportunities. The majority of our senior team have come up through the ranks, including myself, and we’re really looking forward to supporting our team members through this initiative to further develop their skills and talents.”
