20 July 2021

A new service for the 2021 season has been developed to promote your current vacancies directly to young people in schools and colleges here in Somerset.

Somerset County Council along with the four District Councils, Education Business Partnership and industry representatives have worked together to produce a link between a central web hospitality vacancy platform and direct communications to young people in the colleges and training centres.

The benefit of this vacancy portal is that we are able to speak directly and exclusively to people who will be looking for summer work opportunities.

The portal provider, Somerset Jobs, has reduced the cost to you, during the Summer 2021 season, of hosting your vacancy by 80% to just £4 until the end of July!

You can log on to the portal here https://somersetjobs.co.uk/ where you can register your vacancies (use the relevant discount codes hosp, hosp2 or hosp5). Alternatively send your vacancies to info@somersetjobs.co.uk and they will be uploaded for you (the discount will be applied on the invoice sent to you). Make sure you include:

Job title
Job location
Job description – minimum age where appropriate
Closing date
How to apply – email, phone number or corporate careers page
Company information including address, email & logo if you have one
Salary details
If you have multiple vacancies for the same position full or part time then you only need provide one set of information per job type. We will add the extra vacancies specifying FT/PT and the different locations.
