So, what can you expect from a job in the Hospitality industry?
Currently the fourth largest industry employer in the UK, Hospitality is great for those wanting a job with flexibility and the opportunity to earn tips. It’s very broad in terms of the kinds of jobs you can have but most businesses focus on customer satisfaction and leisure time. Although a lot of industries revolve around the customer’s happiness, the hospitality industry is completely reliant on this element. Therefore, it is essential for employees to always put the customer first. Our training package will cover all of this essential know-how.
Hospitality is a labour intensive sector and you should be prepared to be on your feet quite a lot but the job can be extremely rewarding when customers are pleased with their service. Plus, you’ll get to interact with people on a day-to-day basis so it’s excellent if you consider yourself a “people person”.
Hotel and bar work are the most popular roles associated with the sector, however, there are many more positions that you can go into after completing a hospitality qualification. Event staff like stewards and security officers often need customer service skills whereas waiting and other food and drink service jobs are reliant on Food Hygiene certificates.
In Stockport, there has been a 2.0% sector growth with almost 2,000 jobs advertised last year. The average sector wage is £8.68 per hour. It’s a good way to get back into employment as there are a lot of entry level jobs which can lead to higher level and managerial positions.
What is included on the course?
Our bespoke training package aims to give even those with no experience in the industry a range of knowledge to allow them to get their foot in the door. Most of the courses we run are Level 1 certificates so you won’t feel out of your depth if you’re a complete beginner.
Throughout the 5 day course, you’ll gain skills which will help you to deliver efficient and reliable customer service, an introduction to employment in Hospitality, and basic food and drink preparation. We also offer hands-on experience where you can put your new skills into practice. Each course includes an Equality and Diversity in the workplace certificate which can help you to stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs.
In addition to your skills training, we offer a 360 degree service in which we have formed links with local employers. CV’s can be reviewed by our in-house recruitment team with the strongest candidates being put forward for interviews with major local employers.
