"All successful businesses are built on successful training programs and if it wasn’t for the apprenticeship and traineeship programs we have in place, we wouldn’t be experiencing the success we are. It is a great feeling for the team knowing that all team members have had a part in the training and in turn the success we are having. Cowboys Leagues Club is passionate about giving our staff the best opportunity to extend their careers in hospitality and we see apprenticeships and traineeships as the best way to make this happen."
