Luke's Success at The Park

Spanners to Spirits and much more!

From being behind a car bonnet to dreaming of stirring things up behind the bar. Luke went to college to study mechanics, where he realised mechanics wasn’t where his heart was at and his passion lay behind the bar.

Eager to find bar work but with nothing available, Luke took a gamble and applied to be a porter at The Park Hotel in 2019 in hopes his hard work might one day pay off. Many extra shifts later where Luke would often cover behind the bar, he said goodbye to his days as a kitchen porter. Lukes’s motivation didn’t stop and soon after starting his new role behind the bar, he took on an additional challenge of starting his journey with the Brend Academy studying a level 2 Hospitality Team Member apprenticeship specialising in food and beverage service.

Fast forward to May 2022, just 3 years into his career at The Park, and Luke has been promoted to Junior Assistant Manager and we could not be more proud of his achievements. Who better to tell you about his time with us than Luke himself…

'Brend Hotels has allowed me to turn my passion into a career, encouraging me to progress and gain extra qualifications through the Academy. Its often said to work for the Brend Group is to become part of the family, and I wouldn't be where I am without my family at The Park mentoring and seeing the potential in me.'
