Boxpark and training providers Barfection have announced a new training program for young people looking to enter the hospitality sector.
The scheme will see students gain work experience at Boxpark’s three locations in London and also acquire a qualification via Barfection.
The new programme was recently revealed at a recruitment event which Boxpark and Barefection hosted alongside the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
Hosted last week, the event aimed to help young people access a range of job opportunities, including hospitality.
Ben McLaughlin, COO at Boxpark: “We are thrilled to take part in the DWP’s traineeship scheme offering young people access to hospitality careers and valuable experience in a lively and exciting environment.
“Through the traineeship, there are fantastic career opportunities in the hospitality sector with no barriers to entry or prior experience required, which can lead to viable, long-term careers in management and other roles.”
He added: “We are passionate about promoting hospitality employment and playing our part to support under 25s who have been hit the hardest by unemployment as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
