If you are looking to get into the Hospitality industry, our specialist Hospitality Consultant Frank can offer a range of roles at all levels of Hospitality. Here, Frank talks about the current Hospitality industry, and what he is looking for in a candidate.
"The hospitality industry is one of the world’s fastest growing industries and it including hotels, restaurants & related services, catering & event management and cinemas, casinos, bowling alleys and the industry has an estimated turnover of £90bn. In the UK alone it’s worth £46bn to the economy (wage and profits), contributing an estimated £34bn in gross tax revenues.
With 1 in 10 people worldwide employed in the hospitality industry and in the UK the industry employs over 2.4 million people (1 in 13 jobs). In Manchester over the next 12 months there are eight hotels planned to open, numerous new restaurants and bars adding to the huge number of hospitality venues already in a vibrant city of culture and tourism.
I work with all types of job seeker and I am eager to continue to promote the hospitality sector as a huge growth industry and one with outstanding career progression opportunities. My first job role was working as a waiter in a four star hotel, I have met and served thousands of people over the years including some of the biggest names in entertainment.
The hospitality sector is a great industry for young people to gain new skills and confidence and one which can take you anywhere in the world!
At the minute I am recruiting for all levels of chef’s, front of house, duty managers and general managers, to do this I organise careers fairs, assessment days and do a lot of networking across the industry to identify talent and new opportunities for my candidates."
