The UK’s leading hospitality recruitment website is the latest organisation to join the Scottish Tourism Forum to support and promote the importance of the tourism industry in Scotland.

Hospitality recruitment website Caterer.com is the latest organisation to join the Scottish Tourism Forum, an independent body that promotes the importance of the tourism industry in Scotland.

This move underlines the company’s commitment to the Scottish tourism industry. As the region’s leading sustainable industry, tourism significantly boosts Scotland’s international competitiveness and business performance – and there is still untapped potential. For instance, the estimated 20,000 tourism businesses in the country already generate revenues of £4.2b a year and this is forecast to increase 50% by 2015.

In response, www.Caterer.com recently opened an office in Glasgow and put in place a team of experts dedicated to helping Scottish hospitality businesses with their on-line recruitment advertising needs.

The company’s strategy for strengthening the Scottish tourist industry was outlined by website director Ian Burke:

“The leisure, travel and tourism sector in Scotland employs 182,000 people, but with an average staff turnover of 29%, there’s a risk the sector could lose about 53,000 employees a year.

“For that reason, we have decided to work with the Scottish Tourism Forum, HIT Scotland and Springboard UK to raise awareness of the industry as an employer of choice. We have also opened an office in Glasgow to provide a dedicated resource to assist employers in the sector with their on-going recruitment needs.”

To improve its service, Caterer.com has also commissioned research into recruitment and retention across Scotland and will be presenting its findings at hospitality show ScotHot, which takes place during Scottish Tourism Week at the SECC Glasgow on 2-4 March 2009.
