As with all hospitality businesses, we have an everchanging team. Whether it's for the kitchen or FOH, we hire skilled staff from all over the world.
There is no denying that our staff work hard. It is a busy place and they work long hours. But they also earn great money, live together and play together.
Below you will see some past and present crew. Click on the pictures to read their stories!
"Hospitality gets under your skin and for me it is a lifestyle as well as a business"
Sixteen years ago, my world was changed by the sudden death of my daughter, Samantha (Shawty). Exactly one year and one day later, Shawty’s was born.
From humble beginnings with only seven tables, fifteen years and some twenty-five tables later Shawtys began with a purpose to create a space for the community to escape everyday life, experience culture and connect with each other - today that hasn’t changed.
At the forefront of our business every day, are our people. Over the years we have welcomed staff from all over the world who have challenged us to open our minds and our pallets, and have left a piece of themselves behind.
People, culture and community are the values and the resources that have helped to build our business and this is something that I am endlessly proud of.
These values, along with expanding our knowledge of sustainable practices, drive our vision to provide the best service and experience for every customer every time.
