In May, Buckinghamshire College Group partnered with Bucks Business First to hold the first Talent Showcase Workshop linking students to potential employers in the Hair and Beauty and Hospitality sectors.

The event, which took place at our Aylesbury Campus, provided students searching for jobs with the opportunity to meet businesses and share what they have to offer, whilst developing their interview skills and finding out more about the opportunities available. Some of the companies that attended included Champneys Health Resorts, Cliveden House, Hartwell House, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Moogies, Sodexo, Two Spoons Ltd, Waddesdon Manor as well as partner organisations such the UK Spa Association.

Lucy Milton, Head of Business Development said: “Buckinghamshire College Group has been delighted to work in partnership with Bucks Business First hosting the first talent Show Case Workshop for Hospitality which gave our final year students the opportunity to meet leading employers in Hospitality.   The event helped students learn first-hand about the sector, what training is available, what to expect from a career in the industry and most importantly how to get started.   Students gained inspiration for their careers whilst networking with leading employers from the area.   An inspiring event which has given a huge boost to the start of their job searches and career choices.”

The event included presentations and a Q&A followed by interviews between employers and students which were split into focused sessions in Hospitality, Beauty and Hair.
