National Waiters’ Day celebrates fifth anniversary

Springboard will be celebrating its fifth anniversary of National Waiters’ Day this year.

The campaign, led by The Springboard Charity and Fred Sirieix, aims to showcase the hard work and dedication of front of house staff in the hospitality industry.

National Waiters’ Day hopes to change perceptions of front of house roles and highlight career progression in the sector.

As part of the event, waiters and front of house professionals will race through Hyde Park and other locations across the UK. Alongside the race there will be various activities highlighting the skills needed in front of house roles. There will also be demonstrations and talks led by hospitality businesses for prospective employees.

Fred Siriex said: “It’s essential that we promote the ocean of career opportunities hospitality has to offer, celebrate the hard work of front of house professionals, and encourage more people to begin great careers in hospitality.”

Anna Pierce, CEO of Springboard, said: “National Waiters’ Day was created to increase awareness of the range of roles available in front of house, and at the same time, to celebrate the work of the millions who work in the industry.”

The event takes place place on 16 May.
