Hospitality Works

Nottingham Jobs are planning on launching a hospitality recruitment campaign, which aims to support pubs, restaurants, cafes and hotels.

The 'Hospitality Works' campaign will aim to link local Nottingham people with the hospitality sector, giving businesses the people and skills they need as we look to open up the sector by:

  • Supporting employers with getting the right candidates for the roles. This will include advice from Nottingham Jobs team and potentially also information about workshops and support available for employers.  
  • Showcasing roles that are available in hospitality so the right people can apply
  • Changing perception of working in hospitality, which will involve a series of case studies from people who work in hospitality and are successful and happy with their jobs.

An online event has been set up ahead of the launch to get feedback from businesses and to find out what their needs are. The event is scheduled for Monday 12 July 2021, 11am-12pm and you are invited to join to discuss such matters as:

  • Vacancies that you require filling, that we could promote and advertise FOR FREE
     
  • Specific skills shortages
     
  • Any other barriers to recruitment or skills you are experiencing and how you could support the campaign by:
    - Offering venue space for interview
    - Talking to prospective hospitality candidates
    - Promotional pieces to camera, promoting the sector and your business
    - Re-sharing and promotion of posts via your social media channels

The Hospitality Works campaign is supported by Nottingham City Council, The D2N2 Skills Access Hub, Visit Nottinghamshire, Nottingham Hospitality Association and Nottingham BID.

Way2Work, Nottingham Works 4 You and D2N2 Skills Access Hub and part-funded by the European Union through the European Social Fund (ESF).

On supporting the campaign, Richard Johal, a director of Nottingham BID and director of St James’s Hotel said: "Nottingham BID is delighted to be supporting this important and welcoming campaign. There are a whole host of jobs that need filling to suit a range of passions and interests and right now many businesses in the city are struggling to recruit a full workforce, resulting in scaled back services. Hospitality is all about people and that starts with a talented and skilled team.”
