Hospitality is an engaging, sociable working environment, with career opportunities everywhere you go! Hotels, restaurants, bars and attraction/activities are a few establishments that make up the exciting industry.

The diversity and the range of career prospects within hospitality make it a unique industry to join. It’s a vibrant, fast-paced environment, where every day will be different and challenging. If you want a career that will reward you with personal growth and rapid progression, the Go North Wales Tourism & Hospitality Academy can help you find it.

With a total of 180,000 hospitality businesses in the UK and 40,000 tourism and hospitality employees in North Wales alone, the industry is a workforce that offers variety. Between now and 2024, 20,000 additional employees are needed to support the workforce.

The purpose of the Go North Wales Tourism & Hospitality Academy is to create even stronger connections between North Wales tourism businesses and the emerging tourism leaders of tomorrow.

With the support of local tourism and hospitality businesses the Academy will provide more opportunities for students to get real insight into the rich array of hospitality-related roles across the tourism industry. Our aim is to raise the profile of the tourism hospitality trade as a career choice and help businesses recruit the next generation of employees and leaders.

As part of the Academy we will run a series of workshops, behind the scenes learning journeys, networking events and produce regular newsletters.

Employers can be involved with this initiative by hosting a group of students, agreeing to speak at one of our workshops, or just coming along to our networking events. Any offer of support is gratefully received and in return you will have direct access to the next generation of tourism professionals. You will benefit from a free listing on our website, free unlimited vacancy postings and access to research and business support tools.
