Job Today has launched a pilot Bar Academy initiative offering paid work experience to job seekers in the restaurant industry.
The experimental Bar Academy took place inside London’s Michelin-starred Pied a Terre, a gastronomic French restaurant in Fitzrovia on 22nd October. Restaurateur and owner David Moore tutored 10 job seekers, teaching each how to create three unique cocktail masterpieces. One applicant was then be awarded a week of paid work experience at Pied a Terre.
Job Today is the UK’s number 1 hiring app, with over 5 million users, helping young job seekers get hired in 24 hours. As well as connecting them with thousands of job opportunities they are now offering vital training to help reach their job goals – in this case paid work experience.
It’s becoming increasingly harder to get on the job ladder and learning vital skills through unpaid work experience is becoming more commonplace. As a result, Bar Academy is the first event of a wider Job Academy project they’ve created for the casual job market. Job Today’s learning academy will soon be extended into roles for kitchen porters, waiters, baristas and other entry level positions across service industry to help young people make their first steps on labour market.
