Will Ravenhall – Supervisor - As You Like It
What’s been your favourite project you’ve worked on at Apartment Group?
You cant beat a Holly Ball at As You Like It, probably one of the hardest but rewarding shifts I have ever worked. From starting as a waiter, polishing glasses and cutlery for months, my progression in As You Like It has been a very fun and exciting journey. The company pushes you to develop your skills in service and food and drink knowledge, and gives you the freedom to have input in projects within work. I have always had a love for food, and have been lucky enough to have had influence in the creation of new food menus, plus with having a degree in Product design, I have been able to work on interior elements of the restaurant, and been involved in the graphic design of the menus. I have not only developed my service skills, but have been able to include my love of design in work. Throughout my years at As You Like It I have received a number of training sessions to extend my knowledge of food and drinks. From wine tasting and pairing to food testing, I have been lucky enough to be involved in these training sessions, meaning that my level of understanding of food and drink has improved massively.
What do you love most about your job?
My favourite thing about As You Like It is the sense of family between the staff, having worked there for such long a time; I have had the chance to meet a lot of amazing people.
What makes Apartment Group different?
The main thing that makes the Apartment group different is the flexibility of the company, one day you could be working in the restaurant, serving 17oz tomahawk steaks, the next you’re working a 200 person wedding in the frangipani. Again this promotes a wider understanding of customer service, and venue knowledge.
