The hospitality industry is much broader than people may think. It’s exciting, fun, busy, sexy and full of opportunities. The Forge Pizzeria too is a bit of a surprise packet; employing nearly 100 people its two award winning restaurants, event and party venue, rolling oven and catering services. 

The Ballarat Careers Expo,held at Ballarat Grammar on Monday 15 August from 7pm, helped us to tell our story and let people know more about our business and the opportunities that exist with us and in the hospitality industry.

Hospitality is an ever growing industry with many other industries all under the hospitality umbrella. Restaurants, hotels and bars will consist of in-house teams full of marketers, designers, HR managers, head chefs, event managers, accountants, business managers, owners and the list goes on. It is a dynamic and rewarding industry that presents many opportunities for those who enjoy working in fun, busy and challenging work environments. Whether you start your hospitality journey as a front of house employee serving customers or as casual kitchen hand there are many opportunities to move along a career pathway that may lead to you being an incredible CEO or business owner.  Take Don Meij for example and see his story as he climbed the corporate ladder http://www.donmeij.com/the-journey
