Case Studies

  • Name: Gabrielle Le Roux
  • Role: Service Academy Program Developer


I joined the BaxterStorey family after coming over to the UK from South Africa and completing my final year in Hospitality Business Management on scholarship at UCB.

I wanted to work for a business that I could believe in, who shared my values and passion, and would enable me to combine my love of people, food and hospitality in a competitive, business driven environment.

BaxterStorey was a natural fit, and the Momentum Graduate Scheme is a fast track development route aimed at exposing you to all segments of the business operation, with ongoing training and development within an unparalleled support structure to put you in the best position possible to progress into your first management role.

The business is committed to giving its graduates every opportunity to grow and flourish. For those who enter the process with open minds, ambition and a willingness to learn– the opportunities are endless.

  • Name: Alex Borley
  • Role: Food and Beverage Manager-Rocket Space


Alex graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a degree in International Hospitality Management

I joined the Momentum Programme having done a work placement with Baxterstorey in my second year at Oxford Brookes. I’d already seen first-hand the focus the business has upon food and people development. I saw the programme offered me a fantastic opportunity to build upon what I’d learnt at university and apply it in the workplace.

The first half of the programme follows a structure to give you a grounding of skills, but the second half really allows you to focus on where you want to take the next steps of your career. One thing I loved, and continue to in my current role, was working with people who share my passion for serving great food every day. A few highlights of my programme were project managing the launch of a new flagship location, working in fine dining kitchen and, surprisingly, a HR training session.

Baxterstorey really do invest in their graduates and the success stories from past programmes show what you’re able to achieve with the right attitude and ambition.
