Silver Service recruitment agency listing

Silver service waiters and waitresses serve food on to customers plates from a platter.

For those wishing to take on silver service jobs, experience of working in a restaurant is often considered to be more valuable than formal educational qualifications. Inexperienced staff may be asked to complete a day's trial in a restaurant before they are given a job. It is possible for school leavers to enter into silver service jobs through securing a place on an apprenticeship scheme in hospitality and catering.

New employees are typically provided with on-the-job training from experienced staff members. Some employers encourage their staff to study for NVQs at Level 2 or 3 or to attend training courses from The Academy of Food and Wine Service or The Wine & Spirit Education Trust.
