INSPIRE Work Experience

Work experience gently introduces young people to the world of work. The best way to be offered a job is to have some work experience – this could be paid, unpaid, short or longer periods of time. Work experience is the perfect way to sample all the career options on offer. It’s a great way to explore different options and decide where you want your career to take you.

Having a work experience placement gives young people:

  • A true flavour of the industry
  • Valuable experience for their CV
  • Insight into the working world
  • Understanding of their strengths and weaknesses
  • It helps to inform young people about what they do or don’t want to do
  • A potential JOB!

Springboard works with hotels, food and service management, private member clubs and restaurants across the hospitality industry to ensure they offer inspiring and quality work experience through our Quality Standard INSPIRE. Businesses’ work experience offerings are tested against the strict INSPIRE criteria to ensure that candidates are ‘INSPIREd’ into a career in the hospitality industry. Springboard’s ambassadors are key drivers of the INSPIRE standard as industry professionals trained to promote the industry. We also offer a brokerage service where we can help schools, colleges and universities connect with business partners and vice versa.
