Thanks in part to its established tourism and hospitality industry, the ancient county of Wiltshire is home to a number of catering recruitment agencies. Largely concentrated around major settlements such as Swindon and Salisbury, catering agencies supply employers with high-quality, trained staff in a range of positions - such as chefs, bar managers, maitre d's and waiting staff.
With an enviable location along the M4 Corridor, catering salaries in Wiltshire are around the national median for the sector - and average catering job roles tend to command around £19k. The actual job itself as well as its location within the county will have an effect on salary, and as with other areas of the country, catering salaries in the region can rise quite dramatically when positions requiring experience or increased responsibility are taken into consideration.
Entry-level positions in Wiltshire catering do not generally require any specific qualifications - although training in areas such as food hygiene is considered a bonus. In more specialised job roles such as food preparation positions, training and experience are often necessary. On-the-job training is often available from employers - allowing employees to learn as they earn.
Catering is an industry where many leading figures have progressed from entry-level roles over time, so the sky is the limit with regard to career trajectory. In this regard, catering is often considered to be a demanding yet rewarding and potentially lucrative profession. To reach the highest levels of the industry, candidates will require a passion for food and drink and the ability to keep calm under pressure.
