Catrin Aherne
The Clink

I am the General Manager Trainer at the Clink Restaurant in Styal. Within this role, I manage a team of 15 prisoner learners, 2 chef trainers, a restaurant manager trainer and a chef.

I lead by example, ensuring my passion for the hospitality industry and training motivates my team to deliver a high standard of service and food quality, and more importantly, a consistently high standard of training and teaching for our learners.

My ambition for the future is to increase learner numbers by 50%, increase business hours to a 7 day operation and to build on industry relationships in order to provide our learners with more training and employment opportunities. I want to build on my current skills so that one day, I can aspire to be like my previous manager who gave me opportunities, motivation and taught me to progress in a short space of time.
