The UK’s largest hospitality jobs board, Caterer.com, has teamed up with UKHospitality to create a new jobs hub to help redundant or furloughed workers find short-term roles in other sectors.
Thousands of job opportunities have been analysed to create the Hospitality Redeployment Hub featuring 26,000 jobs across with companies such as Lidl, Superdrug, Amazon, Hermes and Co-op to help hospitality workers plug the gap during the coronavirus crisis.
Neil Pattison, director at Caterer.com, said: “We’ve partnered with industry body UKHospitality and industry charity Hospitality Action to make Caterer.com a jobs hub to help displaced hospitality staff find short term employment in other sectors.
All hospitality employees in the UK can directly tap into this free service to search and apply for thousands of roles in sectors such as retail, distribution and care.”
Kate Nicholls, chief executive from UKHospitality comments: “We want to give our fantastic workforce all the support we can to help them through this difficult period. This initiative will help people find work in other sectors also feeling the strain until the hospitality sector is in a position to help pick up the pieces and bring our hard-working teams back together.”
Alongside the new hub for hospitality workers, Caterer.com is also channelling funds, volunteering hours and resources into industry charities such as Hospitality Action and Only A Pavement Away, who now need significant additional help to extend their support to the growing number in the sector who need it.
The non-hospitality jobs now appearing on Caterer.com are powered by Totaljobs, one of the UK’s biggest jobs boards which works with some of the UK’s biggest employers.
