Ben Rice

Senior Account Manager - Chef Division

Ben started his hospitality journey working in some of Shropshire’s finest establishments where he developed a love for not only food, but for wine & spirits. ┬áBen took this passion and ran to Birmingham & Cheltenham where he started to manage bars for a luxury hotel brand which saw him compete in numerous cocktail competitions & representing luxury spirit brands.

It was the bright lights of London that took Ben’s fancy next where he pounced at the opportunity to work within the hospitality recruitment world. Working for Evolve hospitality as a consultant and ending up as Divisional manager for the hotels division.

A big highlight of Ben’s recruitment journey was spent working for The Luxurious, One Aldwych Hotel as their Internal Recruitment Officer where he would not only further his recruitment practice, but also develop the knowledge of internal HR practices. Ben has now been a proud member of The Collins King & Associates family since October 2021 and has dived headfirst into the world of Corporate Chef Recruitment.

Ben is a proud West Midlander and a fanatical Aston Villa supporter. On the weekends if he is not at Villa Park, he is most likely running or enjoying a cold glass of something.
