UK hospitality group recruiting for a variety of hospitality positions; relocation assistance offered
BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS — Recruitment of Caribbean workers by foreign employers is still going strong as a UK company looks to the region for a sales expert in the hospitality field.
Jurys Inn is a four-star hotel chain based in Glasgow, Scotland, but with locations throughout the UK and Ireland.
They are currently recruiting for positions including Group Coordinator, Receptionist, Head Chef and chefs at all levels, food and beverage staff and a Food & Beverage Manager, among others.
The company boasts itself as an organization where “you'll not only be valued, but will have the empowerment to take on a range of tasks.”
“As well as support on tap, you'll get big helpings of skills development,” according to a Jurys Inn statement.
“Whatever level you're at, we'll help you learn and progress.”
Relocation support for Caribbean workers
As with many of the foreign employers recruiting Caribbean workers, Jurys Inn has also offered relocation support.
“[We have] lots of locations in the UK and Ireland, which means that if you want to develop or just fancy a change of scenery, we can help you to move and provide relocation support,” according to its statement.
Additionally, it has outlined a wide range of benefits that are available for successful candidates, including a referral programme that allows employees to earn cash by referring their friends to work for the company.
Further, Jurys Inn offers discounted hotel stay rates for workers and their friends and families.
It also promises performance-based bonuses, flexible working hours, a wide array of training courses, free meals while on duty, 28 holiday days and more.
The available positions can be found on the Caribbean Employment Services Inc. job board as follows:
Caribbean workers still in high demand
As was noted by Caribbean Employment Services Inc. months ago, Caribbean workers are in high demand given different labour challenges in the UK, US and Canada especially.
Several Caribbean nations have seen similar recruitment exercises from foreign employers over the past several months alone.
Healthcare workers have been particularly high on the wanted list, with companies offering attractive relocation packages and sign-on bonuses for Caribbean workers.
As predicted by Caribbean Employment Services Inc. CEO Joseph Boll, this recruitment trend indeed seems to be continuing and may do so for as long as major world powers continue to struggle with the labour force in their own locales.
However, Boll noted that Caribbean residents stand to benefit from this and should take advantage of the right opportunity.
