WYEVALE - FOOD AND BEVERAGE DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
The Brief - Wyevale decided to restructure the hospitality part of their business, looking to have specialists in charge of this division. The role was to create and build an offering that would engage the wide demographic range and appeal to higher overall spend per head. They were looking for a proven operator who had a varied skill set over a large group.
The Solution - Berkeley Scott initially liaised with the client to draft a targeted long list and agreed on particular groups who we felt would fit in terms of their long-term vision and values. Shortlisted candidates were screened and set a task to visit their major competitors and as well as the 4 types of site Wyevale had within the portfolio.
The Result - The role was filled within 12 weeks from the briefing, and the successful candidate has proven to be a strong match for the role; successfully delivering the overhaul of the food and beverage offering and creating new roles beneath them to aid the expansion.
