Travel Tourism Hospitality

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

In the Black Country there are lots of organisations that will advertise for travel, tourism and hospitality roles such as Hotels and restaurants. An example of a companies in The Black Country based on turnover and employment local to us would be MARSTON’S PLC Wolverhampton. Some of the other companies that have advertised positions in 2021 were Mitchells and Butler, Britannia Hotels and Calderfields Golf Club.
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
On Friday 10th July 2020, the Black Country officially became a UNESCO Global Geopark which will provide the area with an opportunity to further develop this sector. Currently, £0.5bn of the Black Country's GVA is attributed to the Hospitality & Visitor Economy, with around 22,000 jobs attributed to the sector.
