A career in food & service management is a satisfying and rewarding one. We currently partner some 30 businesses offering restaurants, delis, coffee bars as well as top end dining rooms and hospitality suites - and we can offer some of the most exciting management challenges in the business.
Lexington is one of the most progressive and exciting contract food service companies in England. We are enjoying great success and are continually evolving. We offer super opportunities for hospitality graduates and our 10 month Graduate Training Scheme provides sound experience in all parts of the business. During this time salary is at the rate of £22,500 pa and upon successful completion of the scheme there will be an offer of a management position within one of our client sites.
The core Lexington Graduate Training Scheme involves placements in various functions across many of our client sites. This gives you the opportunity to learn how each department works, with gradual immersion into supervisory and management roles. To complement this ‘hands on’ learning there will be occasional off site courses with specialist trainers.
Graduates are mentored with regular reviews and will work closely with General Managers on site and departmental teams. On occasions there will be special projects and new restaurant openings which arise that will consolidate your knowledge and provide you with fresh experiences. We recognize the importance of Graduates to the future of our business and are happy to make this investment.
We are really proud of those that have already undertaken our Graduate Scheme and enjoy watching our future Managers (Directors even) grow within their placements and subsequently.
So, we are interested to hear from people who want to work with us and look forward to meeting you.
Join Lexington and you can look forward to a sociable career with a huge amount of responsibility early in your working life and all within the security of a successful company. Ultimately you will be able to progress as far as your capability and ambitions allow.
To enable us to maintain our success and manage our business, we recruit high calibre people and are looking for bright personable confident and self motivated leaders of the future. You should be articulate, numerate and comfortable working with people at all levels and across all disciplines.
The Lexington Graduate Scheme is designed for hospitality graduates who have a real passion and flair for food and service and wish to join our dynamic management team. The structured programme offers candidates a well-defined development plan to optimize their potential and reach their career goals as their talent and determination allow.
On successful completion of the scheme Graduates will usually take on an Assistant Manager role, working with teams to delight our customers and clients and to deliver results successfully. After a year or so gaining real management experience, progress would generally be to Manage your own site – or as deputy on a very large site. Then after 18 months there will be opportunities to become General Manager of a large site and subsequently onto multisite management. As long as you have the motivation, capability and commitment it takes to succeed, you will be recognized and progress will be swift.
