How has working with In2work Traineeships helped your business benefit?
I have been working within the hotel industry for a long time (15 years) and over the years I have always tried to help others through what I do. I have worked with schemes rans by the local job centres and other training providers in the past and the reason why In2work appealed to me is because it was cost effective and it was giving young people a chance to build their work experience. We have offered a number of positions to young people as a result of the traineeship placements and we feel that this way the learners get a better understanding of the job that’s required and we also get a better understanding of if they can handle working under pressure within a busy hotel environment. We look forward to continuing our relationship with In2work and the learners linked to its Traineeship programme.
