Jobs within the Hospitality & Catering Industry

 

Hospitality and catering offers many career opportunities – in hotels, restaurants or pubs, at tourist attractions, outside events and private parties. Increasingly, staff are being expected to carry out a variety of duties rather than concentrating on one job. There are a range of career paths available, and for those with experience who are willing to move around, promotion opportunities are good. There are also courses available if you want to move into management.

 

Hospitality and catering careers cover a wide area which divide into three main area:

 

The accommodation sector

This includes hotels, bed and breakfast places (B&Bs) and self-catering resorts. Health clubs or spas, leisure complexes and golf clubs are also starting to provide accommodation. Jobs can include caretaker, concierge, conference organiser, hotel manager, hotel porter, hotel receptionist and housekeeper.

 

The drinks industry

This includes pubs, bars, clubs and off licenses. Jobs include bar person, publican, and sommelier/wine waiter/ waitress.

 

The food/catering sector

This mainly covers restaurants. As you’d expect this is very wide, covering take-aways and other fast food outlets, ‘fine dining’ and ‘ethnic’ restaurants (like Indian, Italian, Thai and Chinese), hotel restaurants as well as coffee bars. In fact restaurants are the single biggest part of the hospitality and catering industry in the UK. Jobs include catering manager, chef, confectioner, contract caterer, fast food service assistant, kitchen assistant, restaurant manager and waiter/waitress.

There are a variety of jobs on offer – after all the sector is already one of the UK’s biggest money earners and it’s still growing. It’s also one of those sectors where you can work your way to the top, even if you start from the bottom.

Due to the nature of the business there are no regular working hours. Staff can work long hours and shift work, weekend working and late nights are typical. It gets very busy over weekends and public holidays. The industry is customer-led and customers want the service when they are not at work.

Most people in the industry seem to thrive on these working patterns, adapting to them and preferring the flexibility.
