Every year we run a company-wide online appraisal tool, which
allows every employee the opportunity to become recognised as a
Rising Star within the group, irrespective of the location or
department in which they work. Each employee who is recognised to
be a Rising Star, will have a personal development plan designed by
their GM and a member of the P&D Team which will included
access to a nationally recognised qualification most appropriate to
their level, which could be a VRQ, NVQ or part of our in house
All staff have access to our online Academy and we look to
develop personal development plans to help to develop our managers
of the future. We have specific courses which you could participate
• Motivating your team
• Leadership styles
• Planning and delegating
• Problem solving/ Decision making
• Giving and receiving feedback
• Profit and loss
Investing in our people is an investment in our future. It will
always be at the heart of what we do.
Malmaison & Hotel du Vin believe in having quality
restaurants and kitchens. We believe in the finest locally sourced,
ethically produced ingredients. We believe in having fun, but
aren't afraid of hard work. But most of all we believe in good,
properly trained people.
We believe that you cannot afford to ignore good training, and
there is no better place to start, than with Malmaison & Hotel
du Vin. We start with all the classic cooking methods and
techniques, which are the building blocks of any good chef. From
there you can achieve a greater appreciation of the profession and
set yourself higher standards to aspire to.
Today's chefs want to be head chefs by the age of 21, but don't
know how to make mayonnaise or fillet a fish. Malmaison & Hotel
du Vin will teach you these building blocks, setting ability to the
individual and giving you realistic development goals for the
entire kitchen, whatever your experience.
This is the future for the next generation of chefs and goes
someway to guarantee that a future of well-trained quality chefs
will continue to run our kitchens!
If you're made of the 'raw stuff', we want to teach you!!
