Coronavirus: New job finding service for tourism and hospitality workers launched


A new free-to-use jobs portal to help workers from the tourism and hospitality sectors who have found themselves displaced as a result of the COVID-19 has been launched. The portal will not be visible to the public and can only be accessed by the tourism, hospitality community through a link provided by participating companies.

Supported by the Scottish Tourism Alliance (STA) and UK Hospitality, the recruitment portal is designed to help tourism and hospitality staff find at least temporary employment in other sectors such as food retail and supply, health care and delivery that now require high volumes of staff to get through the crisis.

Harri, the hospitality workforce platform, has created the HospitalityUnite jobs hub free-of-charge.

The new portal, which will help those who have already been made redundant or had contracts terminated, is a free service which will also allow sector companies such as those in the food drink retail and care sector with under-employed staff to second them to work in other sectors during the crisis. Video-screening will be provided as part of the service to speed up the recruitment process.

For more details contact Pete Willis, director at Harri, on 07771 886061 or via, or Peter Martin on 07889 209896.
