Productive place to work

I worked in a High Profile contract in the heart of Manchester. my time with RA was fulfilling and also exciting. developing a fine dining menu and service for clients and ensuring food produced was to a very high standard. I found RA to be both supportive and also open to ideas given whilst working on the contrast. As an established manager i did not find any difficulties working for RA, i enjoyed forming a tram and building strong relationships with the clients on site.

Patronizing and obnoxious company

Considered by some to be the best and biggest contract caterers in UK and Ireland. I beg to differ as the products they want us to sell are of lesser quality than other contract catering companies.

Quiet lounge for the business person

Working in the British Airways Excutive Lounge is a nice place to work in with a variety of things to do. Replenishing stock, clearing tables and keeping a good standard of cleanliness. Management and staff very friendly.
