Our Social Project

We provide help for people who are experiencing extreme difficulty to find a job, for a variety of reasons, and to help them (re)connect with the world of work.  The food industry offers a large range of jobs, either in the kitchen or customer service, and enables trainees to build up and improve many different technical skills and behavioural competencies.  A job in a restaurant is therefore the perfect first step for someone wanting to build a career, in any sector.

Our social and professional advice for Back-to-work trainees is provided by three key people:  our Coordinator, our Head Chef and our Job Counselor (in French “CIP: Conseiller en Insertion Professionnelle”).

The 3 steps to get “back-to-work”: 

  1. Trial period: 2 weeks    
  2. Full training: 4 months 
  3. Finalisation and support for job search: open

Depending on individual need, beginner and refresher training is also available in French as a foreign language and literacy.

Our aim is to ensure that our employees have time to complete their Back-to-work training sessions while working in the restaurant, to bring their professional projects to life.

We are in close contact with a range of restaurants and companies at La Défense to set up professional Trial Periods (in French “PMSMP”) and help create job opportunities for our trainees.
