Hospitality recruitment reminder

07 April 2016

The 2016 Hospitality Programme launched by Social Security’s Back to Work Department in February gives employers the opportunity to recruit and train locally-qualified jobseekers with financial support from Back to Work. It also gives Islanders who have not worked in hospitality before the chance to get the basic skills needed to work in the industry. 

Under the programme, Back to Work will fund trainee wages at the minimum wage for up to four weeks while they are being trained in their new role.  For the employer to receive financial support, the trainee must be a locally qualified jobseeker who has little or no experience in the industry.

Practical skills

As well as giving candidates the opportunity to gain practical skills in a hospitality environment, Back to Work also provides trainees with the opportunity to secure relevant certificated qualifications such as health and food safety, responsible alcohol retailing, and customer service.

The Social Security Assistant Minister, Deputy Graham Truscott, said “This is a great opportunity for us to match Jersey residents who want to work in hospitality with employers who want staff ready for the busy season.

"The financial support we are offering, allows employers to recruit and train their new team on-the-job at no financial cost for the first four weeks of their employment. This recruitment and training approach has already proved successful and we’re encouraging employers to use this opportunity to recruit into the sector.”
