July 2014 – Rydges Campbelltown

Rydges Campbelltown is Australian owned and operated and is the leading hotel in the Macarthur region.  Employing some 50 staff Rydges Campbelltown has been established in Campbelltown for over seven years. Featuring 116 luxury rooms and a stylish and contemporary bar and restaurant, it is an ideal hub for business or social events.

In an effort to support the growth of the Hospitality Industry Rydges Campbelltown has been offering Year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Hospitality as part of their HSC, week-long work placements since 2009.  These students are given a wonderful insight into the workings of the kitchen.  They are involved in basic food preparation and cleaning and in High Tea food preparation.


Executive Housekeeper, Jess Falguera said “Over the years we have had a great mix of students.  They have a good approach and generally have the right attitude and passion for the industry.”

General Manager, Brett Barlow added “I would encourage other businesses to join the MWLP program.  It’s a good opportunity to give back.  It’s also a great way to impart knowledge and to identify the up and coming talent.  I find it useful to train up staff in areas of staff induction, supervision, co-ordination of work and follow up.”

As this month’s outstanding winner, Rydges Campbelltown will receive profiling in the Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly editions of the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on www.mwlp.com.au and thanks to United Cinemas Narellan, Grand Seating movie tickets.
