Springboard's first Scottish Tourism Careers Festival

07 Mar 2012
by Gareth Edwards, Director of Education, Springboard
Diversity. Flexibility. Certainly two words we hear time and time again when describing the careers of the future, which need to adapt to fit with our changing lifestyle demands.

Following Springboard Scotland's success last year with events to coincide with Scottish Tourism Week, this year we are co-ordinating a month-long Tourism Careers Festival scheduled to run from 1-31 March.

The festival programme will work with Scottish Tourism Week, to encourage links between the industry and potential recruits, key influencers and the community. Activities will aim to widen the appeal, improve access and attract new talent into the industry.

Are you a leisure company with business in Scotland? This is your opportunity to engage with your local community!

In a recent survey of students across the UK, The Springboard Charity discovered that the single biggest influencing factor on their career choices was work experience. With this in mind we encourage the industry to open its doors throughout March to the community, inviting them to come and see at first-hand what we do. The festival is a chance to showcase the excitement of the work place with its key target audiences.

Creating the festival buzz last week was the Prestonfield House Hotel in Edinburgh. They set the standard for the March events by opening their doors to local influencers. Alan McGuigan, general manager of the hotel said the industry offered "something for everybody in this world that's full of diversity and flexibility".

Diversity. Flexibility. Certainly two words we hear time and time again when describing the careers of the future, which need to adapt to fit with our changing lifestyle demands.

Scottish Tourism Careers Festival's mix of events reflects this, and with a programme designed for everyone. Highlights include the official festival launch event on 1 March - the Ambassadors Networking Event at Gleneagles – to be attended by Scottish tourism minister Fergus Ewing MSP.

But there will be so much more going on, so log on and take a look at our website and see how you, your colleagues, your students or your teachers can get involved! Details: http://lei.sr?a=w5M0l
