Five industry organisations have come together to launch CareerScope, a free service supporting those who have lost their job due to COVID-19 and are keen to get back into work, as well as those looking to start their career in hospitality, leisure and tourism.
With hundreds of thousands of jobs at risk in the coming months, CareerScope is a partnership between Springboard, Hospitality Action, UKHospitality, the Institute of Hospitality and the Savoy Educational Trust. The aim is to provide a one-stop industry hub with easy to access advice on everything from CV writing and career webinars to redundancy and financial support. There is also a big focus on health and wellbeing resources as the founding organisations recognise the effect on those losing jobs and that the industry will need motivated, healthy and well-trained staff, ready to work when it recovers.
CareerScope will also feature a digital training academy so that those seeking to return stay up to date on a variety of skills, from customer service and food safety, to confidence and assertiveness. The aim is also to encourage new talent to the sector so that in times to come it thrives as a great career choice.
