About this webinar

This 90-minute webinar will consider the impact of the COVID pandemic on travel workforces and resources. Speakers will share updates on the current candidate landscape, recruitment strategies, and future talent schemes including apprenticeships. 

Learn what major skills gaps are facing the travel industry and how recent events, including the pandemic and Brexit, have changed the way we work. Hear speakers discuss how employers can plan for the future to ensure we have the roles and resources necessary to rebuild businesses effectively. 

Following National Apprenticeship Week in February, gain insight into the benefits of apprenticeships for employers and the roles available for apprentices within travel businesses. Consider how apprenticeships fit alongside other talent on-boarding schemes and ensure your business is fit for the future. Hear how potential candidates view the travel industry and what roles they are attracted to. 

Designed for travel businesses, travel employers and educational organisations, there will be a chance to submit your questions in advance or ask them live during the webinar to any of our expert speakers.
