Created by Chef & Restaurant Magazine, and with a plethora of supporters including Gordon Ramsay, Tom Kerridge and James Martin, Choose Hospitality was created to bridge the gap of communication directly to those who are training for a career in the sector, at the same time encouraging more school leavers and job-swaps to consider the profession.

Claire discusses why Choose Hospitality is needed, how it aims to help the industry, why fewer young people are considering a career in hospitality and how perceptions can be challenged.
