It’s our dream to create the first government recognized NVQ in ‘Professional Bartending’; we’re working in partnership with the British Institute of Inn-keeping (BII) and the University of Westminster to make this dream a reality with LCC’s training & development setup at its core.
Each new LCC recruit is partnered with a team member who guides them through our tiered training program which is tailor-made to them based on existing strengths & weaknesses from past experience.
The LCC family is a crazy mix of characters and we’re proud to embrace unique personalities from all walks of life. We work with The Prince’s Trust and Springboard Recruitment to give anyone with an interest in bartending the best quality training, providing the skills needed to build a successful, life-long career.

As part of LCC, you’ll get opportunities to visit everything from distilleries to festivals! PLUS there’s a bunch of ways to up your game through staff competitions and incentives where you’ll get the chance to take the spotlight and show the rest of the crew what you’re made of.
