The Glasgow Talent Programme is being launched by industry group Experience Glasgow next month. It’s free and aims to provide full-service support to those affected by redundancy because of the COVID-19 pandemic and will run until April 2021.
Supported by Scottish Enterprise, the programme will provide mentoring and guidance to hospitality workers that are looking for new opportunities and challenges within the industry.
Services include coaching and confidence-building, personal development and HR recruitment opportunities and transferable skills, emotional and mental wellbeing alongside PR, marketing and digital.
Participants will be offered a complimentary personalised support plan tailored to best suit their situation. They will be encouraged to continue in the professional and personal development during this challenging time.
Gordon McIntyre, vice chairman Experience Glasgow and chair of Hospitality Health said, “The hospitality and tourism industry is one of the biggest in Scotland. It does a fantastic job of contributing to the economy and as an industry that has arguably suffered the most as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Glasgow needs to do all it can to support the industry and to help it grow back to its best. The launch of the Glasgow Talent Programme provides hope for the sector as well as much needed guidance and support for employees affected as a result.”
