Cornell Education Group partners with Flametree Kitchen

Since the third quarter of 2015 The Cornell Institute has collaborated with the number one preferred catering company at Auckland University – Flametree Kitchen. The company looks after the functions and catering needs of the university faculties.  This requires a variety of skilled food production and customer service staff. Recently the University has been conducting the spring graduation ceremonies and this has meant large numbers of staff on specific dates. Cornell has stepped up to provide over 20 personnel to support the Flametree operations. The student recruitment has been generated out of iCareer, the careers support department at Cornell, which is focussed on creating opportunities for the Institute’s student population.

Troy Reid, the general manager of Flametree Kitchen, along with Carlos Atkinson the executive chef, visited Cornell in October to award a prize and certificates to the outstanding student staff during this very busy period of the year. Tiffany Lai the recipient of the main prize delightfully comments “I has been a great opportunity to work for a very supportive company such as Flametree and I learnt a lot from the experienced staff during the functions”.

We look forward to developing this job support program further with Flametree Kitchen – watch this space.
