Summary

Joining Mitchells & Butlers is more than just a job. You’re joining a family, in a fun, friendly workplace where you also get the opportunity find your career path in hospitality. That’s true for Ashley Dunnett who joined Mitchells & Butlers in 2016 as a Kitchen Manager and is now following his dream career path to become a General Manager. We caught up with Ashley to find out more about his aspirations, his career journey so far and his advice to those looking to follow his steps. What made you join Mitchells & Butlers? At my previous workplace, I felt like I had hit a wall in my career. I was looking for my next step and a bit of inspiration when I saw Nicholson’s were recruiting. I was really looking forward to joining a successful brand and setting myself more challenging goals.   Tell us a little bit about your career journey with Mitchells & Butlers so far. I joined as a Kitchen Manager in Covent Garden. I really enjoyed working in the kitchen, but after 13 months I was looking for a fresh challenge. I moved to an Assistant Manager role at the Greyhounds in London Soho, aspiring to become a General Manager with my own pub in the future.   What has been your drive to switch roles? I decided to move from the kitchen to the waiting team, because I’m a people person and I love entertaining guests. I really enjoyed creating dishes, and progressed to Kitchen Manager, which has been great, but my long-term ambition has been to be a General Manager.   How has Mitchells & Butlers supported your development? Mitchells & Butlers has a great management development programme in place that has helped me gain the knowledge and skills to drive my progression. I have also had the opportunity to take the Level 4 Food & Beverage Hospitality Apprenticeship. Alongside this, the network of regional trainers and Regional Business Managers have been great at giving me the support to progress to Assistant Manager.     What’s your advice to those looking to progress in the hospitality sector? My advice is to aim high and take the opportunity to learn through apprenticeships. They’re a great opportunity to learn new tricks of the trade.   Interested in a role in pub management?
