Average pay for hospitality workers outstrips UK average income
There's never been a better time to get involved in the hospitality sector as average wages begin to outstrip the UK average salary, carrying with it a range of career and employment opportunities available to people of all backgrounds.
The hospitality industry is among the fastest growing sectors in the UK and now directly employs 3.2 million people, making it the fourth biggest provider of jobs in the UK. The sector is worth over £75 billion to the UK economy and contributes a further £90 billion through indirect means.
The diverse and vast nature of the hospitality sector means that potential employees can transfer a diverse skill set across a wide range of workplaces within the industry; people can choose to work in hotels, restaurants, pubs, and bars, to name just a few.
The sheer size of hospitality also means that there's always a high demand for staff, which means it's possible to cash in on the rapidly increasing pay available. Bartenders and waiting staff, for example, will not only get their base rate of pay but can profit immensely by receiving tips from customers — this has the added benefit of helping to improve the level of customer service.
Drink A Mix has capitalised on the shift in the job market, being able to recruit well-trained and quality bar staff for their cocktails and bartender service that caters to parties and events.
A company spokesperson said: "We provide a bartender only service alongside our other ranges that include a mobile bar and alcohol provision, which means that the success of our business is driven primarily by the employees.
"As the earnings of hospitality workers have started to rise, it's become a much more attractive option for talented employees and we've been seeing a real change in the motivation of our staff as they feel well rewarded for their efforts."
