Employment focus for Glasgow festival

Front of House Festival kicks off tomorrow.


AN EMPLOYMENT-focused festival that aims to encourage more young people and jobseekers to consider roles in hospitality kicks off at City of Glasgow College tomorrow (October 13).

Organised by employment charity Springboard, the Front of House Festival will incorporate a number of Glasgow schools alongside City of Glasgow College students studying hospitality courses.

Events at the festival will include cocktail demonstrations run by Diageo Learning for Life programme candidates as well as a photo call with front of house staff from across the Glasgow trade.

Annie Pierce, Springboard’s chief executive, said the festival has been created “to increase awareness of the range of roles available in the front of house”.

It’s the ideal opportunity for jobseekers and businesses alike, with activities ranging from skills challenges to talks,” said Pierce.
