A new way of working for the UK hospitality industry

As the UK hospitality industry comes to terms with even tighter Covid restrictions a new initiative will help re-boot business through a new way of working.

The Hospitality Partnership is being re-launched working with Associate Founder Partners to support the current changes and challenges by creating a resource talent bank of experienced industry professionals.

It means hotels, venues and hospitality businesses can still operate and deliver their objectives but in a flexible and more cost effective way. It also offers good industry professionals who have recently lost their jobs, but want to stay in the sector, opportunities to continue to share their skill and expertise, and helps employers looking for skills gap solutions.

Jan Denning, founder of The Hospitality Partnership, and Associate Founder Partners Jo Kenny, Diane Lofthouse, Sue Redmond, Jack Appleton and Russell Fraser, will be working with approved industry partners and associates. They aim to outsource key roles like sales and business development, PR, social media, revenue management, financial control, training, reservations, food and beverage services, procurement, mystery shopping, business coaching and venue finding.

This more flexible way of working will benefit both employers and industry job seekers. Only professionals who are recommended or known personally to The Hospitality Partnership founder partner associates will be accepted so employers have complete peace of mind that they will be working with some of the best professionals in their field.

Jan Denning, said: “Sparked by the challenges facing an industry trying to re-build during these different and challenging times I realised that we all will have to work differently and more cost efficiently to flourish and thrive. Business has to be done in a different way, especially now, with even more restrictions in place, so now they will be able to hire professionals for as long as they need them without all the associated costs of permanent employees.
“Seeing so many of my contacts, colleagues and industry friends losing their jobs, I knew I wanted to do something to help. The business offers an opportunity for those people looking to work for themselves, but with a greater support network, by being a part of this new ‘Go To’ resource talent bank”

The Hospitality Partnership will officially re-launch in early October.

Full details will be on social media and available on the new website coming soon.
