Search is on for staff at new Marco Pierre White Restaurant

The management at the South West's premier hotel are looking to recruit staff to work in its new Marco Pierre White restaurant.

Located at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Congresbury, the new eatery is set to open in September. As the final details are put in place to create the region's finest restaurant, the search is now on to find the best staff that that will make diners' experience second-to-none.

The new restaurant is offering a number of roles including a variety of chef positions along with restaurant manager and assorted waiting and bar staff.

Those who put themselves forward will then have the chance to work at the region's finest restaurant with successful candidates being put through a rigorous three-week training programme that will see them brought up to speed on the exacting standards required by the three-starred Michelin maestro.

Mark Hands, group general manager at DoubleTree by Hilton said:

"The arrival of a Marco Pierre White restaurant is great news for the region and we’re expecting a lot of interest from those keen to gain experience of working in an environment created by Britain's greatest ever chef.

"The standard required will be very high and those who think they've got what it takes have to be totally dedicated, professional and will want to strive to be the best in all they do. There is a mix of roles from senior positions such as head chef and restaurant manager to restaurant staff who will create the personality of the restaurant."

Regarded as the godfather of modern cooking, the fiery chef is famed for his no-nonsense approach and Michelin-star food. He was also the key influence to both Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blementhal who were both trained by and worked for Marco.

Mark added:

"We're absolutely thrilled to have someone of Marco's calibre open one of his restaurants at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House and clearly demonstrates our commitment to continually bring the best to the venue and we can’t wait for the Autumn.

"Up until now DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House has arguably been regarded as being the best hotel across Bristol and North Somerset. The arrival of Marco will now reinforce this position."

North Somerset bosses put best foot forward for Hospice

Bosses from two of North Somerset's biggest businesses presented a cheque for over £1,200 to Weston Hospicecare following their participation in this year's Mendip Challenge.

Mark Hands from DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House and Paul Butchers from Cadbury Garden Centre, presented the money to Sue Sweet from Weston Hospicecare, having completed the 20-mile course earlier in June.

The dynamic duo not only completed the course in good time but added an extra one mile to their trek as part of the 'Go The Extra Mile' initiative that was put in place to celebrate the 20th year of the walk.

In total Mark and Paul raised £1242.82 which will now go the hospice which provides care for anyone who has a life-threatening illness from across the region. Caring for around 1,000 people and their families each year it provides a wide range of services including a Day Hospice, Hospice at Home and a 10-bed In-Patient Unit.

Sue said

"The amount raised by Mark and Paul is fantastic and would for example pay for three patients to have a 16-week Day Hospice programme.

The total cost of the service is £67,908 per annum. All care and support is provided free of charge to our patients."

Mark said:

"We're delighted to have raised so much for such a worth while cause and would like to thank all those who pledged some money. The day itself was fantastic and with about 700 people taking part the atmosphere was excellent.

"I have to admit my feet were hurting a little towards the end but when you consider why we were doing it puts our aches and pains into perspective."

Paul added:

"The organization of the event was excellent and I’d like to thank all those who donated money. Although it’s took a few days to recover I’ll certainly be doing it again and look forward to next year - I may even consider doing the 30-mile course!"

New North Somerset Consortium Addresses Region’s Skill Gap

A new partnership has been forged between the business and education sectors in North Somerset that will not only strengthen each partner's presence across the region but improve employment opportunities for people living in the area.

The consortium is made up of DoubleTree by Hilton (Cadbury House), The Cadbury Garden Centre, Congresbury and Weston College the idea being to share networking opportunities and business contacts, collaborate on joint projects and support the local community by working in partnership, sponsoring events, activities and local charities.

It will also look to address and improve the skill base of local employees by tailoring courses at the college.

Applying to all age groups the aim is to launch the consortium in time for the new academic year in September 2010. It will also help improve the purchasing power of each partner enabling them to invest any monies saved back into the regional economy.

With both DoubleTree by Hilton and Cadbury Garden Centre operating in the leisure sector and Weston College offering training in the workplace in the hotel, leisure and catering sectors, including business and administration, means students will receive training that is not only relevant to these two local employers but will help improve their employment opportunities once they complete their studies.

Mark Hands, group general manager at DoubleTree said:

"As a major employer in North Somerset we have a responsibility to provide work for as many local people as possible. If those opportunities can be improved through the close cooperation with the consortium partners can only bode well for the future.

"Tailoring courses and improving the qualifications will help reduce skills gaps which in turn will improve employment in certain sectors and I’m very much looking forward to working closely with my peers from both Weston College and Cadbury Garden Centre."

Gill Fowkes, head of marketing and communication at Weston College said:

"The aim is to create collaboration between likeminded companies, that will benefit us in business through joint ventures and better cost controls and result in enhanced working relationships.

"There are plenty of potential advantages to such a venture. We can offer the businesses access to training opportunities which could be used as incentives for staff. They in turn can help our students with work placements."

Paul Butchers, store manager at Cadbury Garden Centre added:

"As a direct neighbour to DoubleTree by Hilton we deal with each other on a regular basis. It makes economic sense to explore avenues that will be beneficial to all parties as well as the local economy.

"Developing links with Weston College is also great news. The provision of courses pertinent to what local businesses are looking for will help improve job opportunities and ensure that their futures as a local employer remain secure."


Godfather of modern cooking to open restaurant in Congresbury

The godfather of modern cooking, Marco Pierre White, is to open a new restaurant at the South West's premier four-star hotel.

The new restaurant will open at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Bristol South, Cadbury House in Congresbury and will start to welcome guests towards the end of August.

The fiery chef, famed for his no-nonsense approach and Michelin-star food, has confirmed that his latest eaterie will be at the contemporary venue that has been transformed over the past four years following investment of around £20 million.

The opening of the new restaurant follows meetings with owner Nick Taplin and group general manager Mark Hands who are now getting the new venue ready to open later in the year.

Mark Hands, said:

"We're absolutely thrilled to have someone of Marco's calibre open one of his restaurants at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House. It clearly demonstrates our commitment to continually bring the best to the venue and we can’t wait for the Autumn.

"Up until now DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House has arguably been regarded as being the best hotel across Bristol and North Somerset. The arrival of Marco will now reinforce this position."

Nick Taplin, said:

"We are very proud to have Marco as a business partner and look forward to working closely with him to make this new restaurant a huge success.

"It again raises the bar in terms of what people can come to expect at restaurants in the region and we look forward to welcoming guests when it opens. It is also great news for the area as a whole and we hope it will attract more people to the region who will see for themselves why the South West is such a great place."

By the age of 33, Marco had become - at the time - the youngest chef to be awarded three Michelin Stars and had working for him Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal.

Marco added:

"I've visited Doubletree by Hilton, Cadbury House a number of times now and I've been very impressed not only by the venue itself but the vision of Nick and Mark. They have a self belief and determination to bring the very best to guests who stay at the hotel and dine in the restaurant.

"It's going to be a very exciting time and I'm really looking forward to bring my vision of dining out to the South West."

John Hallett managing director of Destination Bristol added:

"This is superb news for the region. Marco Pierre White is without doubt one of the most influential chefs the country has ever produced and to have him open a restaurant in the heart of the region will not only bring more people to the area but really place North Somerset on the map.

"As far as restaurants go this really has to be the one of the best things to have happened across Bristol and the South West for a long time."
