We are pleased to announce the appointment of James Parsons as our new Operations Manager (Hospitality).
James will be responsible for further developing the hospitality department activities which already include weddings, conferencing, catering and social events.
Assistant Principal, Andy Daw, said: “James brings with him a wealth of experience and will be a great asset to the management team. He has an exceptional record within the hospitality sector and his enthusiasm is inspiring.”
James said: “This is a really exciting opportunity and I am looking forward to enhancing and building upon the strong foundations already established. This is such a lovely location to welcome guests, and as a wedding and conference venue it is spectacular.
“It is so important to be successful here as every penny of income generated assists College activities and supports the students in primarily land-based training, which is vital for our rural Dorset community”.
Originally from Taunton, James has lived in Dorset for 18 years, and previously held management roles for Whitbread, The National Trust, Weststar Holidays and most recently operated his own local hospitality business for eight years.
