Caterer » Overview


Caterers manage and co-ordinate the preparation of food for functions or events. They traditionally prepare all food and drinks to create the ambiance that clients’ desire. This is involves arriving to the venue long before guests are due to arrive to set up, and staying behind after guests have left to clean up. Caterers tend to be self-employed and hire staff to help serve the food and drinks. Therefore, emphasis is on great tasting (and great looking!) food.

Caterers meet with their clients to understand what it is that their clients are looking for, and determine the budget. They need to be good communicators, with the ability to actualise the client’s vision of their event.
