Hospitality & travel
Where work finishes for most people, it’s only just beginning for those employed in hospitality and travel. They’re the ones who run the restaurants, serve us in pubs and bars, arrange our holidays, and make sure we get there safely.
There are some fantastic opportunities in this sector. Fancy serving cocktails in a trendy nightspot? Want to jet off around the world as a holiday rep or aircraft cabin crew? Or maybe you’d like the buzz of working in a busy kitchen during the Saturday night rush.
An apprenticeship in this sector could lead you into any one of these careers and more. Of course, not everyone works as a tour guide or surfing instructor. There are many less glamorous but equally vital roles: travel agents who arrange people’s holidays, line cooks, baggage handlers, customer service assistants and so on.
Working in this sector isn’t one long party. There are often antisocial hours and you might be away from home for long stretches. But the work is varied and if you have an outgoing personality and know how to help people enjoy themselves, you could go far – in more ways than one.
