Great news for the Hospitality Industry – after real estate and transportation, hospitality is the third fastest-growing industry for jobs.
According to the latest data by job board Indeed, the availability of jobs in the UK hospitality sector has grown by 36% in the last year and is one of only four sectors where job postings did not drop between August and September. David Rudick, vice president of International markets at Indeed.com said: “It’s not surprised that job postings increased in September 2014 compared to the same time last year – reflected by statistics that unemployment has recently fallen below the 2 million mark.”
Following on from the increase in job postings; Scotland announced a pledge from 100 hospitality businesses to create 342 job opportunities to help reduce unemployment amongst 16-24 years olds in Scotland. These will be a mixture of jobs, apprenticeships and work experience opportunities.
