People 1st International partners with charity to help travel industry

Skills expert People 1st International is helping people in the travel industry to transfer to other sectors.

People 1st International is partnering with the travel industry charitable trust ABTA LifeLine to help people in that sector whose careers have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic to learn new skills that can transfer to other industries.

The partnership is part of a wider scheme that People 1st International has launched to help employees in travel, hospitality, retail and aviation to both capitalise and build upon their current skills, as well as to learn new industry-specific skills so that they can more easily transition into new roles.

The initiative includes a service to match these skills to available roles in health, social care, logistics, retail and funeral care. It also features a self-assessment tool to help align people to new industries and roles, and to build a profile that can be used to promote their expertise to recruiting employers.

People 1st International UK director Sandra Kelly said: “We’re seeing a host of job opportunities opening up in industries where transferable skills are in high demand. We’re keen to help place motivated and passionate professionals with employers seeking complementary values.”

ABTA LifeLine director Trudie Clements said: “Whether colleagues are looking for a career change or simply to bridge the gap until travel opens again, this scheme will help our people at a most challenging time.”
