Hospitality & Leisure businesses in Westminster need staff.
A combination of issues have made life tougher for the UK’s hospitality and leisure sectors, particularly in Westminster.
With a million pound budget and a team of recruitment and training specialists, we’re here to help you find the staff you need.
The West End, Knightsbridge and the entertainment centres around Leicester Square and Soho attract visitors from the UK and internationally.
With over 3,000 businesses in hospitality and over 4,400 in leisure, there is a greater concentration in the city of Westminster than anywhere else in the UK.
The remarkable diversity of hotels, cafés, restaurants, bars and entertainment businesses both big and small are a key part of the appeal of London for residents and international visitors.
The project will work with employers to understand their needs for skills, including seasonal requirements and then identify potential sources of employees, understand their requirements, their motivators and any barriers. The focus will then be on ensuring that we effectively match job seekers to employers to create long term, sustainable relationships.
This consortium brings together the New West End Company and the Knightsbridge Partnership, the Business Improvement Districts in London’s two International Centres. It is supported by the Westminster Property Association and the University of Westminster. The service is funded by a £1million grant from Westminster City Council.
It will be delivered by Step Ahead and AttisTowns and will focus on being business led, outcome orientated, innovative, deliverable, inclusive and efficient.
Starting from March 21st 2022, the first 100-day phase of the programme will focus on engaging with employers and employees in the hospitality and leisure businesses in Westminster. This will help us to understand more fully the issues that motivate people to work in these sectors and to identify practical ways of lowering some of the barriers that prevent some of them from doing so.
Informed by findings from the first phase, the consortium will launch the scheme fully in early July.
