LAUNCH OF HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY LIFELINE
As the UK hospitality industry continues to deal with the effects of the on-going pandemic Jan Denning and Associate Partners believe the re-launch of The Hospitality Partnership has come just at the right time.
As hotels, venues, bars, restaurants, conference and events centres, destinations and attractions struggle to keep the staff to run their businesses, they are being offered a lifeline, a flexible, cost effective alternative way of working
The Hospitality Partnership, working with approved industry partners and associates, can offer outsourced key roles like sales and business development, PR, social media, revenue management, financial control, training, reservations, food and beverage services, procurement, mystery shopping, business coaching, venue finding and more.
Six associate founder members and more than 20 associate team partners have joined the Hospitality Partnership to benefit both employers and job seekers.
Trybooking is delighted to be the online events booking partner - making it easy for venues and their clients to take online bookings for virtual events or setting up socially distanced events, to enable numbers and menus to be easily booked in one easy step.
Says Jan: “This industry always comes together in times of crisis but we have never really seen anything on this scale before. It is heart-breaking to see good businesses struggle, continue to operate and plan ahead because of lack of resource and recruitment budgets cut. The Hospitality Partnership is truly the solution, whether long term or short term, whether a day a month or five days a week.
“I am delighted with the calibre and experience the partnership has attracted, covering a variety of key roles and skills, and we all have the one common objective, to get business back on its feet, cost effectively and without compromising service.”
Adds Jan: “Businesses will make their own choices and agree fees with the partner professionals, we make the introductions and recommendations. There are many benefits, but a main driver for our services is that businesses can operate efficiently and within budget, whilst saving on all the associated costs of permanent employees and the time consuming recruitment process. It gives the business total flexibility of an outsourced professional, while they choose how many days they are needed for and maintain full control of time and cost.”
The founding associate partners of The Hospitality Partnership with Jan are Jo Kenny, a sales professional, Russell Fraser, a travel, tourism and hospitality professional, Diane Lofthouse, freelance Director of Sales, Jack Appleton, Managing Director of Relentless Media and Sue Redmond, Managing Director of Sue Redmond PR.
Together they have built the ‘Go To’ resource of associate team partners, all have a proven track record in their field of expertise and come personally recommended.
“That way clients know we are referring people at the very highest level, who meet our very strict eligibility criteria,” said Jan.
