Hotel School Graduates Join Searcys14 December 2022
HOTEL SCHOOL GRADUATES JOIN SEARCYS
Charity and community work play a huge role in Searcys’ ethos as a company; this has been the case for many years. Through our team’s charitable activities in 2022, we are on track to raise £175,000 for charities this year.
Today, we are shining a spotlight on the work of one of our hospitality charity partners, Hotel School.
Hotel School teaches hospitality skills to homeless and vulnerable people, matches them to sustainable employment, and supports them in their first steps into work. Hotel School is a joint venture between The Passage (London’s largest voluntary sector homeless resource centre) and The Goring Hotel. It is supported by London’s five-star hotel community and over 50 local businesses – a true coming together of the community.
Searcys donations this year helped Hotel School to complete three consecutive cohorts in a year with an overall graduation rate of 90%, helping 28 graduates. 75% of graduates are in sustained employment.
Searcys has facilitated five work experiences and employed three graduates this year. We are delighted to welcome Oksana, who has joined us as Hospitality Assistant at 30 Euston Square, Liudmyla, a Commis Chef at One Moorgate Place and Marthe – a Commis Chef at Inner Temple
Dana Sandrock, Employment and Progression Manager at Hotel School says, “It’s been a very successful year for our partnership, not to forget all the donations. We are so lucky to have you as one of our main partners. Thank you!”
