Amy joined the company at the age of 19 as a part time Team Member whilst studying at University. She initially joined Café Rouge in the role of Bartender before moving to Waiting Team Member and then progressing to a Supervisor. Becoming a Supervisor gave Amy a taste for management and she continued learning on the job before being promoted to an Assistant Manager and transferring to Bella Italia. When becoming an Assistant Manager Amy realised she did not want to continue pursuing a career in teaching and instead enrolled on to a development programme called Future Leaders. Future Leaders enabled Amy to gain the necessary skills and experience to take the next step in her career and in 2018 she was promoted to General Manager.

"I feel the perception of working in this industry has massively changed over the last few years, and thanks to the opportunities and support given to me by Bella Italia, I’ve found hospitality as a genuine career option, and I can’t wait to see where my career takes me."
