25 February 2019-8 March 2019
My Hospitality World is an ‘open-day’ initiative lasting two weeks next spring. It is organised by Career Colleges, schools, hospitality employers, the Institute of Hospitality and supported by one of the UK’s best-known hospitality personalities Fred Sirieix.
Businesses are asked to open their doors to young people and their parents during the period Monday 25 February to Friday 8 March 2019 and to provide a real insight into the industry.
Peter Ducker FIH, chief executive of the Institute of Hospitality, says:
“As the professional body for the hospitality industry, we want to encourage and support people to embark on a career path with us and the ‘My Hospitality World’ initiative will help us to achieve this. What better way to celebrate and showcase an industry than the employers themselves opening up their doors and inviting future employees to see what’s on offer? We are confident that we will successfully inspire the next generation of chefs, hotel managers and restaurant owners – ensuring a bright future for the nation’s hospitality industry.”
Backing the campaign is top Maitre’D, Fred Sirieix, who features on the Channel 4 TV show First Dates. Fred says:
“Come join the world of hospitality, explore new horizons and a career that will give you the skills and knowledge to enable you to work around the world.”
A pilot scheme was run this August; businesses that participated in the pilot included Aqua Restaurant Group, D&D London, Malmaison London, Park Plaza London Riverbank, Royal Lancaster London, and Intercontinental London O2.
