We are supporting a piece of work with the UK Hospitality Commission who want to understand how they can they can raise the profile of careers in hospitality, and support skills development and diversity across the sector.
Hearing from young people is key to this work, to help the commission understand what experiences young people have of working in the sector and what young people think can be done to make careers in the sector more appealing.
The work covers all aspects of hospitality; coffee shops, hotels, pubs, restaurants, nightclubs, contract caterers and visitor attractions.
We are offering an opportunity for young people (16-24 year olds) to share with us their views and experiences. We will choose the best submission and invite the writer to come and present their entry at a meeting in Parliament on the 12th of June 2pm – 4pm. We will arrange for your travel, lunch and a tour of parliament as part of the experience.
*This competition is free to enter, the tour of Parliament is free*
