The National Outdoor Events Association (NOEA) has announced the second of a series of campaigns with The Nationwide Caterers Association (NCASS), this time steered towards attracting and keeping talent within the events industry.
The latest campaign will see both organisations focus on educating potential employees on the benefits of working within the independent food and drink sector, specifically relating to events. Both NCASS and NOEA have extensive networks within both universities and high school education, and the associations will work to encourage the celebrating
of these roles as credible career paths while raising awareness of apprenticeship opportunities open to employers looking to gain new talent.
Nick Summers, Managing Director of NCASS, comments: “We really want to create a sector of choice, for people starting out in their careers, looking for a change or for those coming to the end
of their careers and are looking for a different lifestyle – this is an industry that embraces so many transferable skills. It’s not just about transient workers or students looking for summer jobs, we need to present our industry as one that offers professional careers.”
The campaign will also outline the many benefits of a career in events covering opportunities for growth, salary, and personal development.
