Pubs, nightclubs, hotel and venue bars, they are all part of the licensed hospitality industry. It’s an industry that’s at the heart of every community, where most of us have memories of good times and great nights! Not surprisingly, it’s a sector that’s a mainstay of the British economy, revitalising itself year after year to remain modern and appealing. Thousands of young people’s first jobs, and often their favourite, are in licensed hospitality, many move on to other careers, but a growing number are realising this industry they know and love offers rewarding careers of epic proportions.
