The UK hospitality industry has received a jobs boost, as plans for a £200 million hotel and restaurant complex in Newcastle-upon-Tyne are unveiled.
University leavers seeking graduate jobs in the sector may be able to benefit from the development, set to take place behind Newcastle Central Station, which is set to create up to 3,500 new employment positions.
Commenting on the impact of the news on the hospitality industry, Angel HR management consultant Wendy Dining was extremely positive.
She told Recruiter magazine the development would not only help the local economy, but was also "great" for recruiters in the north-east of England.
Last week, recruitment firm gap personnel announced that it had created a new hospitality arm called Entree.
The new operation will provide staff for events, stadium fixtures, conferences, private functions and hotels, according to Recruiter.
Experienced caterer John Silvert has been lined up to take charge of the firm's new division.
