Meet Judah

Posted on Monday, 1 February 2021

Whilst Judah only commenced working at Canterbury in 2018, this Belmore local’s association with the Club started much earlier.

“I chose to work at Canterbury as I have always had fond memories of times visiting there as a child,” said Judah.

“I’m a Belmore local so it was the go-to place for my family, usually for my uncle’s birthday. The best part was coming to the old bistro where they would serve the best fried prawn tails.”

When he started, he undertook the Club’s hospitality traineeship for one year where he learned about the business by rotating through departments before finally choosing Food & Beverage.

His current role as a Food & Beverage Senior Wait Staff sees him working across Canterbury’s dining outlets including The Bistro, Bakehouse Café, and Canterbury Smokehouse. His multifaceted skills are also used in other departments including Functions and Warehouse.

“Outside of work, I am constantly writing essays and scripts for my online screenwriting course and I’ve come to enjoy writing them to keep myself mentally stimulated. I even have a script for a television show that I’ve been developing since 2016,” said Judah.

“When you get to know me better, you’ll find out that I absolutely love dogs. I’ve had two beagles in my life, one called Thumper and the other, Chewbacca. My favourite breed of dog is a German Shepard though – they are just so majestic, and I would love to own and train one.”

And what does 2021 bring to this avid dog-lover?

“In 2021, I’m looking forward to new experiences – in spite of what’s happening around the world limiting some of the things we can do, I’m still optimistic to see what the new year brings us,” said Judah.

“The moment we can travel internationally I would love to go back the United States. I went previously as a teenager but by the time travel resumes I’ll have a bit more freedom to go to things such as concerts, sports arenas, try all kinds of food, and overall just experience the country with a revised level of awareness.”
