The Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions (ASVA), the representative body for the attractions sector in Scotland, has teamed up with recruitment specialists, Xpressjobs, to provide practical support to Scottish attractions facing ongoing recruitment challenges and to shine a spotlight on the wealth of fantastic career options available in the sector to those looking for new opportunities.
As a result of this partnership, a whole new range of recruitment support tools are now available to ASVA’s members, completely free of charge, including unlimited job postings on the Xpressjobs website, a ‘jobs of the month’ service highlighting the variety of excellent roles in the sector, and consultancy and advice on attracting talent into the sector.
Launching the new partnership, ASVA CEO, Gordon Morrison said: "Speaking to attraction operators across the country over the course of this year, it is clear that one of the biggest challenges facing our sector, along with the cost-of-living crisis and impact this is having on the cost of doing business, is with recruitment of staff. Our organisation wants to further shine a light on the amazing opportunities available and I firmly believe this partnership with Xpress Jobs will further highlight the breadth of fulfilling, well paid roles and the excellent career options that can currently be enjoyed in Scotland’s attraction sector."
Head of Xpressjobs, Ivan Mackenzie said: "Hospitality & Tourism is about the people, yet job boards, at times, can feel very impressionable, corporate, and isolated as they come. Here at Xpressjobs, we want to be as hospitable as possible to our visitors, candidates, and recruiters, bringing together a one-stop-shop for jobs, advice, news, support and more all under our ‘community’ site. Through the Xpressjobs site, the organisation is looking to signpost help and attract people back to work. They aim to enhance the industry’s image by developing the Xpressjobs site as a broader platform across the various roles that Hospitality, Leisure, and Tourism offer."
