Jack Sturdy

Position: Operations Director Designate

Growing up, food was always in the forefront of my family life, and having started working weekends in my local fish restaurant at a much younger age than officially I should have, I had progressed to become the lead chef on busy weekend evenings by the time I left school for university, where I obtained a first-class honours degree in Culinary Arts Management.

Leaving university, I continued my culinary journey in the restaurant industry, including head chef at a Loch Fyne restaurant and pastry chef at 3-rosette level – until, inevitably, I saw the light of contract catering and joined the most food focused catering company I could find; TNS Catering, as a support manager working with the operations team nationally.

More than a decade on, I have never looked back – and love the fact that I work for a company who value relationships with their colleagues and clients, and the quality of the food we deliver, above all else. Ultimately, we’re just a bunch of passionate foodies who want to deliver a great service and have a good time while we’re doing it, and the collaborative approach in how the company is operated supports a creative freedom not often found within this setting.
