The hospitality sector job board Caterer.com has launched a free online support and advice resource to help hospitality workers and jobseekers find work, progress their careers and improve confidence and wellbeing as uncertainty continues around Christmas and the future of the sector.
Created in partnership with Heads of Talent and HR at respected hospitality brands including Honest Burgers, The Ivy Collection and Home Grown Hotels, alongside others including Kew Green Hotels, Brunning & Price and industry wellbeing and education experts, the new Caterer.com Career Advice Hub provides answers to jobseekers’ most asked questions in a range of short, accessible articles and videos. Topics include resilience, coping with redundancy, how to find the right job for you, understanding your skill set, nailing your first 90 days in a new job and maintaining wellbeing and confidence in the current climate and throughout the jobseeking process. Alongside the Career Hub, there are also over 38,000 live jobs showcased on Caterer.com, so hospitality jobseekers can build their jobseeking skills and find a new role within one accessible and hospitality specific platform.
Neil Pattison, Director at Caterer.com, said: “The last eight months have been punishing for the hospitality sector and its people, and with a tighter tiered system just announced, unfortunately uncertainty continues as we draw into the Christmas period and beyond.
“Now more than ever we need to support one another, and freely sharing knowledge, insight and advice is an important way to do this. Our Career Advice Hub has been created to give hospitality workers positive and empowering support, direct from employers and experts in the industry. Building the skills and resilience of our hospitality people right now, and through the coming months, is crucial to the future success of the sector. Hospitality may be in lockdown now, but it will rebuild, and then employers will want to welcome back some of the incredible people that make the industry what it is. We hope our Career Hub, which will be a constant presence on the site and be added to regularly, will boost the confidence and wellbeing of employees and will be a lifeline to those in the sector that need it.”
The Career Advice Hub will be added to weekly with videos, podcasts and downloads that take users through the jobseeking lifecycle of a hospitality worker from application to promotion and all stages inbetween.
Earlier this year, in response to the first national lockdown, Caterer.com also launched its Hospitality Redeployment Hub, in partnership with UKHospitality and Hospitality Action. It became a hub for displaced hospitality workers, who needed short term roles in other industries. Since its launch, the Hub has showcased over 120,000 live jobs and received over 2 million job applications. There are currently in excess of 38,000 live roles on the site, with thousands in hospitality jobs available, as well as those in other sectors.
