Springboard Awards for Excellence 2010 – call for entries

Springboard Awards for Excellence 2010 – call for entries

For over 20 years, Springboard UK has been helping young, unemployed and disadvantaged people into careers in hospitality, leisure and tourism as well as being the industry’s natural partner in improving its image, attracting new talent and addressing skills shortages.

Springboard was born out of a real skills crisis in terms of recruiting enough home-grown talent to meet the needs of the vibrant hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism industries. Every year, Springboard manages to deliver a full range of programmes that reach out to literally millions of people of all ages and backgrounds across the UK. The work is vital, as the industry’s recruitment and skills challenges remain, due to a combination of welcome industry growth, demographic impact, a highly competitive labour market, issues around poor image and most recently changes in visa regulations.

Springboard’s vision is to be the UK’s leading provider of specialist careers, vocational education and employment services relating to hospitality, leisure and tourism; thereby supporting young, unemployed, disadvantaged and other job seekers as well as being the industry’s natural partner in improving its image, attracting new talent and addressing skills shortages.
