Springboard partners with UKinbound to boost hospitality careers

Industry charity Springboard has announced a partnership with trade association UKinbound, as part of the groups' aims to develop careers within the hospitality, tourism and leisure sectors.

The partnership was announced at UKinbound's annual summer ball, at Altitude 360, in London's Millbank Tower.

It comes as part of UKinbound's #TourismABC campaign, which has been launched to prompt greater consideration from the government of hospitality's role in driving up employment, and powering the UK's economy.

Anne Pierce, chief executive of Springboard, said: "We look forward to this great partnership in raising the profile of the hospitality industry and helping the young, the unemployed and those facing barriers to work into sustainable employment within the industry."

Chairman of UKinbound, Mark McVay added: "We are delighted to announce the Springboard Charity as our official charity partner and we look forward to supporting the vital work that they do. We'll also be working together to release a series of success stories from within the industry to showcase its importance as an employer."

The Springboard charity provides development programmes, training exercises, careers advice, and education sources.

Trade association UKinbound seeks to engage with the government, travel trade and media, to raise awareness of the importance of inbound tourism to the UK economy.
