What should you look out for when choosing a business to work for?

You need to think about first of all what do you really want to do? or if you are not sure, what experience can you gain from working for this company. You should think about what career opportunities they can offer and what employee support and benefits they offer and remember this is something you should be asking at every interview.

Also consider your interests and if the company has similar interest such as, a sustainability culture, charity collaborations or their D&I policies.

Don’t forget, the bigger companies have fantastic Head Office opportunities so the variations of jobs and job opportunities in hospitality is phenomenal.

What one piece of advice would you give someone looking for their next job in hospitality?

Don’t be blinded by “it’s just a job until I get a proper job”! The career opportunities are amazing and if you work hard it is one of the quickest industries that you can develop and escalate to become a Manager, Director or a business owner. 

Why did you start Hospitality Jobs UK?

Honestly, it was through frustrating of the limitations other job boards had in place and how they just wasn’t flexible around candidates needs. I wanted a job board that valued the candidate equally to the client and giving the candidate the quickest way to find a job without lots of filter questions which could potentially mean the candidate could lose visibility of a fantastic job opportunity. 

Why have you introduced The Ladder monthly newsletter?

I wanted to give candidates real time and up to date information and the tools for every candidate to succeed in their job search and the skills and support for them to succeed in their career development and journey. Plus from next month onwards, we’ll be interviewing some of the biggest names in hospitality on how they got to where they are now and the skills they think you need to build a successful career.
