Aramark helps student employability

17 April 2013

Following a successful recruitment drive, the University's catering provider, Aramark, has employed 13 of our students to work in the campus food outlets and at catered events. Linking up with the Students Union to promote the recruitment campaign, Aramark were impressed with the standard of applicants.

Alfred Bauer, Contracts & Facilities Manager within Estates & Facilities said "we are delighted that the initiative to provide employment for our own students has been so successful".

After asking Tarik Mahri on his thoughts about Aramark employing Westminster students he said "it’s fantastic news. I’m glad to see that Aramark have provided job opportunities for Westminster University students as it shows the company are committed and care. There’s nothing like a flexible part-time job at Uni that can help students gain new skills and earn money in the process, I wish all the new recruits the best of luck".

It is hoped more opportunities will be provided in the future.
