Tips for catering and hospitality jobs in London

Despite the economic doom and gloom, there is currently good potential for catering and hospitality jobs in London. The relative weakness of the pound means that the tourism industry hasn't suffered as badly as other industries, while the buzz around the 2012 Olympic Games has created a surge in demand for hospitality and catering staff. If you want to get into this industry, we have a few tips to help...

  • A good starting point for your job search is recruitment websites like Job is Job (jobisjob.co.uk), Total Jobs (totaljobs.com) and Monster (monster.co.uk). You can filter jobs by industry and location on all these websites, allowing you to view a refined list of all the latest hospitality and catering jobs in London. Major employers and large companies often use this method of recruitment.
  • However there are a range of smaller companies and even larger companies who only have one or two vacancies to fill that are unwilling or unable to pay the often large fees to advertise on one of these job search sites. For these positions, check in your local newspaper under the classifieds section. You may also want to use your contacts in the industry to help you track down current vacancies - they should know when someone is leaving the company. It's also worth calling in in person with a copy of your CV and covering letter.
  • Catering agencies are one of the best sources of employment in this line of work. You can often sign up online.
