International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month
At Georgian House we place significant importance on developing individuals and providing equal opportunities regardless of gender,ethnicity or background and championing women plays a significant role in this. Partner at Georgian House and female trailblazer Serena von der Heyde has always been passionate about celebrating women’s successes, highlighting the issues women are still facing in industry and looking at ways we can create a pipeline of talent to enable more women to progress their careers at leadership level within hospitality. For us at Georgian House championing women begins by providing a diverse and empowering work environment with equal opportunities and development plans in place to allow all team members to progress at Georgian House and beyond.
Flexible working hours We understand the importance of being able to manage working hours and that this can be particularly difficult for working and single parents to manage. We always look to provide flexibility with working hours allowing team members to balance their work commitments and home life.
Promoting the Industry We are proud to work with Women Returners, a charity that encourages women from a variety of backgrounds (including the homeless and those effected by moddern slavery or personal circumstances) who have taken a break from work to get back into work and pursue a career within the hospitality industry.
Changing perceptions At Georgian House we are not shy of challenging perceptions, just once example of this is our all female kitchen team, lead by our Head Chef Monia (former Umbrella Apprentice of the Year) we showcase that there is progression for all in hospitality regardless of background or previous experience you are able to progress across all departments.
