People & Culture Administrator
In June 2012, a bright eyed and bushy tailed Brendan (although with short hair back then) walked through BENCHMARQUE's doors for an Events Casuals group interview. Very green and very naive, I had never had a job before, let alone a job in hospitality. Despite this, two of our original Staffing Coordinators, Sabina and Carly, took me in any way! Although I didn’t have a long-term plan to stay in hospitality, I fell in love with the industry, and five years later...here I still am!
Since my start at Sokyo, I have worked across all FOH roles, coming into my own as a lead waiter and maitre 'd, before venturing into Front Office with Sheraton and Marriott. After a one year stint in media, events and music festivals, I consulted on the pre-opening team for Thievery in Glebe on branding and FOH operations before returning to BENCHMARQUE.
Currently, I facilitate our group interviews for Events, Restaurants and Bars, Baristas and Nightlife as well as provide technical and non-technical systems analyst, copywriting and sub-editing services to the business.
Whether you're a potential staff member, client or growth partner, talk to me about how we can collaborate with you to realise the next goal for your career, venue or brand.
