Maud Buckle -Venue Audit Accounts Administrator
I joined As You Like It in October 2017 as a part time bartender having never worked on a bar before. Over the next few months I learned a multitude of new skills that allowed me to take on new roles and responsibilities in the venue, and I became a supervisor by the end of summer 2018.
What’s been your favourite project you’ve worked on at Apartment Group?
I entered my first ever cocktail competition at As You Like It, the prize being that the winning cocktail would be entered in the new cocktail menu that was in the process of being created for the venue. I was relatively new to As You Like It at this point, however with the freedom that my superiors gave me to experiment, and the guidance offered by my supervisor, I managed to win first place and I now get to see my cocktail being served daily in the venue. I think it was at this point that my passion for cocktail making really came about and that is what gave me the drive to progress in the company.
What do you love most about your job?
I’m probably going to repeat the same thing that everyone else has said but it has to be the people. Working at As You Like It you really are working alongside your best friends.
What makes Apartment Group different?
The opportunities that are given to all levels of staff members are unlike anywhere I’ve ever worked. The company constantly encourages its staff members to learn new skills and widen their knowledge of the venue and its suppliers; hosting barista training, spirit tastings, and inviting company reps to teach us perfect gin pairings are just a few examples.
