Young job­seek­ers hear about ca­reers

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

More than 100 young job­seek­ers headed to the Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel for the Big Hos­pi­tal­ity Con­ver­sa­tion.

Busi­nesses from the around the county came to­gether to dis­cuss more than 430 job op­por­tu­ni­ties, ap­pren­tice­ships and work place­ments for 16 to 24-year-olds in the tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try.

Sam Coul­stock, head of spe­cial projects at Spring­board who helped or­gan­ise the event, said: “Hos­pi­tal­ity and Tourism busi­nesses in Kent re­ally come out in force to in­spire young peo­ple from across the county to find em­ploy­ment, work ex­pe­ri­ence and ap­pren­tice­ships.

“It was great to see so many young peo­ple get ex­cited about the po­ten­tial ca­reers avail­able to them and meet em­ploy­ers re­cruit­ing on the day.”

The event was or­gan­ised by the Bri­tish Hos­pi­tal­ity As­so­ci­a­tion and spon­sored by Visit Kent, Q Ho­tels, and South­east­ern who do­nated 250 rail passes to get young job­seek­ers there.
