Young people get a taste of the hospitality industry in Warwickshire

Young people have received insights into the appeal of a career in the hospitality sector during the first My Hospitality World Warwickshire campaign by Warwickshire County Council.

Like many sectors, the hospitality industry faces ongoing recruitment problems with young people in 2019 facing more career options than ever before. That means that employers need to be proactive about recruitment – and many got involved with the My Hospitality World Warwickshire Campaign to speak directly to young people. Among businesses to host events was the Stratford Manor Hotel, where the campaign was launched.

“The workshops were a great success and myself and the teams involved really enjoyed having direct interaction with pupils. The campaign not only allowed us to share our opportunities but also created relationships with two local schools, which I really value and will build on in future months,” said Joanne Hammick, general manager of Stratford Manor and a member of the steering group behind My Hospitality World Warwickshire.
