Travel Tourism Hospitality

Would you like to be part of an industry that sells experiences and memories?

In Gloucestershire, there are lots of organisations that will advertise for travel, tourism and hospitality roles, such as hotels and restaurants. An example of companies in our county, based on turnover and employment, local to us would be THE PREMIER INN. Some of the other companies that have advertised positions in 2021 were CANAL AND RIVER TRUST, THE GREENWAY HOTEL AND SPA & THE ROYAL GEORGE HOTEL.
This is an industry that is all about making someone’s day that little bit better and selling and creating experiences and memories. You could be working in a range of settings dealing with passenger travel such as at airports or working in a hotel. If you enjoy cooking you may want to explore career opportunities in Food and Drink. You could be working in a restaurant as a chef designing and cooking meals or as a waiter serving customers.
There are 26,600 employed in this industry in the county (8.7% of the county).
