A group of unemployed young people from the Ipswich area have become the latest recruits to complete Greene King and The Prince’s Trust’s Get into Hospitality programme to help them find work in the hospitality sector.
Launched just 15 months ago, the programme has supported 103 disadvantaged young people across the country to address the skills and experience gaps that prevent them from getting into work.
The young people, aged between 16 and 25, spend three weeks learning about many aspects of hospitality, including guest service, alcohol licensing laws and food preparation. As well as being taught in the classroom, the students gained skills during placements in Greene King pubs across the Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds area.
Rooney Anand, Greene King’s chief executive officer, said: “For many of the young people, this is an important step to get their first job in hospitality and we are pleased to have been able to support them.”
