What’s been your favourite project you’ve worked on at Apartment Group?

The progression from trainee manager to Duty manager at As You Like It was a big project alone! And was my favourite so far. Being put outside of your comfort zone managing the bar, a chaotic main floor, a busy restaurant, or running a wedding, I was always kept on my toes and was excited every time I came to work to see what they day would bring.

Even though I may no longer be the trainee manager, giving others the opportunity to go through the same experiences is still a great project for me.


What do you love most about your job?

The people you get to work with and the new elements of the business you get to learn every day. I have worked with several teams in both As You Like it and the other venues now and it truly does attract the most interesting and entertaining people.


What makes Apartment Group different?

I mentioned already that there is something new happening every day in the apartment group and that is what keeps it exciting. The best thing about it is that, if you want to, you can always be involved. I have always worked at As You Like It but have been given several opportunities to work with the other venues and help with their development too – something that I don’t always think you would be able to do in a different company.
