NWTC Careers | Where Will Your Year Take You?
January 2nd, 2019
Over what has been an exciting 7 years, New World Trading has continued to create, develop and progress in both site numbers and brands. Today we operate 24 sites and 7 unique brands - with an ambition to keep growing and push boundaries, we don’t expect 2019 to be any different...
OUR EXPANDING WORLD
2018 saw the composition of our newest brand, The Florist. Located in the cities of Liverpool and Bristol (and soon-to-be Watford) The Florist offers a sensory world of culinary delights, fragrant cocktails and nightly DJ’s - encompassing the principles of floristry to charm each of the senses.
Last year, we also expanded our beloved Botanist brand into Coventry and Cheltenham. Creating an innovative look and feel, these sites are our pioneers for the brand in both design and culture.
With more Florist and Botanist sites opening over the next few months, we are starting the year as we intend to go on. 2018 may have been a bright year, but 2019 may be the best yet.
JOIN OUR ADVENTURE
A world of possibility, adventure and discovery, New World Trading is always searching for individuals with ambition and determination to join our adventure.
We spoke to our newest Head Chef, Richard, who’s recently taken charge of The Smuggler’s Cove, our nautical inspired restaurant and bar in Liverpool, on the Albert Docks.
Chatting about his aspirations for the role and future career prospects, he told us that whilst the Christmas period wasn’t the easiest time to start a senior role, he thoroughly enjoyed December and is now ready for the coming year. Being thrown in the deep end has now evoked a desire to develop his role within the company and take the kitchen to new heights for both his team and loyal customers.
To any chef contemplating change, Richard said; “I’d give any aspiring chef the same advice. Make sure it’s what you want, there are certain sacrifices to be made and it’s demanding, but if you thrive on pressure and have a willingness to work hard, it’s the career for you.”
Whilst The Smuggler’s Cove has long been a pinnacle for New World and a mighty force in Liverpool, we also caught up with Restaurant Manager, Tabitha who joined our latest opening; The Botanist, Coventry...
After working in a number of independent venues, Tabitha told us that, although NWTC seemed like a ‘corporate’ larger company it didn’t feel too different to make the switch because of the close-knit, ‘family feel’ she’s experienced within the team. She puts this down to being part of TRIBES and having hands on ops managers who help develop this unique atmosphere. She’s also welcomes the procedures and training offered by New World to support her in the role.
Tabs saw the opening of The Botanist, Coventry last November and whilst it’s been a whirlwind to establish and create, it’s been an experience that’s she’s learnt from...
“I have loved the fact that it was our journey and our 'baby' from the very start. We were very much involved with every aspect from the beginning. The first 2 weeks training with the team was great, as they were more relaxed and it gave us an opportunity to get to know each other and bond. The culture day was one of the best parts of all of this.”
NWTC culture days are the first day of any new opening, giving everyone the chance to learn more about the vision and culture of the company, as well as participating in fun TRIBES events. For Tabitha, this part of the opening, “Really showed everyone's true colours and gave everyone a chance to come out of their shells.”
Openings can be tough, but they teach you so much about what you can achieve. For Tabitha, the opening made her realise that she might take a slightly different path and sparked an interest for her in sales and events. Looking forward to 2019 she says; “I am looking forward to getting the Coventry site well organised and running smoothly, to the point where it can almost run itself. I’m also looking forward to meeting new people in the company and getting involved with lots of TRIBES events.”
Whatever your dream or goal, NWTC can help encourage, develop and even expand your ambitions and aspirations in 2019.
