A National Campaign Celebrating the Food & Service Industry

The National Waiters Day Race @ London Hospitality Festival | Sunday 8th September, King's House Sports Ground, Chiswick, London

Participating Employers


National Waiters’ Day is an annual campaign that promotes Food and Drink Service as a fantastic career path, and helps connect businesses and talented job seekers.

It culminantes with a showpiece race and careers fair in London’s Hyde Park, but there are many opportunities to promote your brand to job seekers across the country in a variety of ways. If you would like to get involved outside of London, please fill in the form here.

If you are interested in participating in the careers fair and race in Hyde Park, please continue reading below.

Why should my company get involved in the London careers fair and race?
As the hospitality industry continues to experience a UK-wide skills shortage throughout many disciplines, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to find talented, dedicated staff. Indeed, with Brexit fast approaching, talent acquisition and retention may become more of a problem in the future.

As a standholder, you’ll have the chance to interact with the next generation of hospitality workers, encouraging the best and the brightest into the industry. You will have the chance to recruit new workers and offer placements, as well as boost your brand to young people from across London. Sign up here.

Enjoy a fun day out with all your colleagues, at National Waiters’ Day 2018. If you are feeling fit and ready, you can sign up for our spectacular, hospitality-themed race here.
