We are making a brand new series offering young UK residents the opportunity to train as front of house staff in the restaurant industry. The show will be fronted by a top restaurateur.
We will select 8 young people aged 17-30 to be filmed for the series. We are looking for candidates from across the UK, from a wide variety of backgrounds, who have yet to find their direction in life. We are looking for people who, we believe, have the potential, enthusiasm, character and skills to become top waiters. We are looking for people who are comfortable being filmed and who we think the audience will best relate to – so we will be taking lots of different qualities into account when we chose the final 8 trainees.
The final 8 trainees will receive 8 weeks’ intensive training as waiters and wine waiters with some of London’s finest front-of-house staff. The aim is to help them build the confidence and skills they need to secure a good job in the restaurant industry. We will film this process – at present the plans is to transmit the experience over 8 episodes on BBC2. Over the eight episodes the trainees will experience a wide variety of mentoring, real life experience and testing. Although there is no elimination, the intention is that at the end of the 8 weeks two trainees will be chosen by the top restaurateur to take up 6 month placements in major restaurants and hotels.
