Jason Smith

Jason Smith

Jason was born into hospitality through his great Auntie and Uncle at the age of 13. He found his love for the business within the family pub restaurant business and developed this passion for people and to serve. During his hospitality education with Colchester Institute he embarked on his first internship experience with the Walt Disney Company in Florida. After graduating from Colchester Institute, he stepped into a world of hospitality and events with Scottish & Newcastle retail, traveling to Chigwell, Essex where he met his wife to be.

Returning back to his love for the Disney company, Jason went to lead a team in Food & Beverage & Events in Walt Disney World Florida and made some more magic! Inspired by his love for the business, he founded Yummy Jobs & Yummy Jobs International.

More recently Jason co-founded the Hospitality Network, FLIGHT Hospitality and now helps lead the Swiss Education Group team in the UK, Ireland & The Netherlands. His passion is to help advise and nurture the future talent of tomorrow and loves to see each student flourish and grow in the business of hospitality.

Nickie Gordon

As an experienced Student Counselor in the hospitality education and business management industry, it is my pleasure to provide complimentary one-on-one further education counselling sessions. During these session I will be advising on a variety of options from summer programmes and short courses in Switzerland, or undertaking a postgraduate degree through to completing a Masters programme, not forgetting discussing those world class internship opportunities.

I enjoy working closely with students and adults (and their families) of whom are either in education or those wishing to return to education for personal development and career progression. As a good communicator I am able to connect effectively and effortlessly with students, clients, customers, industry partners and co-workers at all levels and invite you to reach out for further information.

I am fortunate to have experience in representing high profile brands such as Harrods Aviation, Walt Disney World and even Wembley Stadium and look forward to connecting and welcoming you to the Swiss Education Group family.
