Urban Myth supports Jamie Oliver graduates at VIP showroom event
Urban Myth has supported the Jamie Oliver foundation for over ten years. Our first project was to donate a training kitchen for the Fifteen apprentices; from that moment forward and throughout all our work together, we have always felt privileged to be involved in such a worthwhile cause that enables young unemployed people to get involved in all aspects of the hospitality industry.
This apprentice scheme is no walk in the park. The hours are long and the apprentices have to adjust to working in a team, learning about food and its origins. And on top of all this, each graduate studies for a government-recognised qualification, all within the restaurants of The Jamie Oliver Group.
Many of Urban Myth’s core company values are echoed within the Jamie Oliver apprenticeship scheme. Our own directors have a very ‘hands-on’ approach and over the years have put a huge emphasis on developing our people. A good number of our staff have been with the company since the beginning of their careers and those who started with Urban Myth as part of an apprenticeship scheme with the local college are now an integral part of our talented team.
This October, we once again partnered with Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen when we invited apprentice graduate Dean McClumpha to join us at a corporate event in our showroom. Dean showcased his extensive skills using one of our working display kitchens, and providing delicious canapes for our guests and an insight into his journey – as well as a few tricks of the trade.
Our guests were also able to admire our showroom, which has recently been updated to include new displays from our Urban Life range, which is manufactured in our factory in Essex.
If you are planning a new kitchen, a visit to our showroom is a great place to start. With over 15 different displays and even more accessories and appliances on show, you can be inspired and feel the quality of our kitchen ranges for yourself.
