The Gold Service Scholarship

The Gold Service Scholarship exists to inspire, educate and nurture the UK’s finest Front of House Talent.

Launched in 2012 as the UK’s most prestigious Front House of award, it offers the opportunity for an aspiring individual to hone their craft through mentoring, travel and placement opportunities provided by the industry’s most senior service professionals.

The winning scholar will be invited to join the Trustees at a luncheon at Coutts, The Strand, with a special menu created by Executive Chef Peter Fiori, to agree a planned programme of placement, support and mentoring.
