Hospitality & Tourism Events

This project promoted to Lambeth residents the benefits of working in the hotel, leisure, travel and tourism sector as it was not attracting enough local residents.

South Bank Employers’ Group’s experience of working with employers in London’s cultural heart – such as Merlin Entertainments, which runs the London Aquarium – and with local residents highlighted to us an issue over the perceptions of what jobs in this sector. So we helped organise events to help to change this, and show those looking for jobs what these jobs had to offer – including huge progression potential, even for someone starting at entry level.
