Hilton Birmingham Metropole has launched an initiative called ‘A Place for Everyone’ that aims to provide career opportunities, in the conference, events and hospitality industry, to people from a range of diverse parts of society.
The campaign will see the venue partner with a series of charities and NGOs who support young people from a range of backgrounds to secure job opportunities within the hospitality industry. Partners include:
- Workfit: A Down’s Syndrome Association’s employment programme, that matches employers with potential employees who have Down’s Syndrome and will see the hotel take on employees through the partnership
- Aurora Foxes, Hospitality & Catering College, a school for people with severe learning disabilities, where the hotel is looking to attract young talent
- Newlands Bishop Farm, a work and education charity, that also gives those with learning disabilities an entry level work experience in a farming environment, but where the venue is also looking to give advanced level employment opportunities
