Joseph Buck - The Lloyds Banking Group Award for Rising Star of the Year

 

More about the winner...

Joe is an advanced level apprentice studying towards Hospitality Supervisor, working at Toby Carvery.

He is currently completing his third apprenticeship in 3 years, seizing every opportunity available to develop his learning further.

Joe’s apprenticeships have allowed him to not only become competent in the business, but also have a positive impact on numerous tangible business measures including profit, improving guest satisfaction and running the Christmas campaign - one of its busiest periods.

Joe has also completed further training to broaden his knowledge, completing both back-of-house and front-of-house courses, which he hopes will help him become a rounded General Manager in the near future.

 

I am so proud to win the National rising star award for 2018, I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity and also to the people who helped me get to where I am now. Throughout the 3 years of my apprenticeships I have had many challenges both in my business and in my personal life but have always given everything to improve myself and the business I manage. I am so pleased to be recognised for this award.”
