What’s Buddy Day?
Buddy Day is a hands-on work experience day that offers the opportunity to shadow an employee for a day, in a variety of hospitality & tourism businesses.
Buddy Day will give you a taste of what a particular job involves, the skills and attributes you would need and a chance to sample the atmosphere of a particular working environment. It is also an opportunity for businesses to share best practice.
Who is it aimed at?
Buddy day is ideal for employees in the Hospitality industry to sample ‘a day in the life’ in another establishment or in an alternative job role.
It is also aimed at those considering a career in hospitality & tourism, including career changers, returners, and unemployed people. It’s also suitable for those who influence career choice, including Parents, Teachers, Lecturers, Careers Advisors, Jobcentre Plus Staff, and other Industry Partners. Or indeed anyone who would like to “try out” a new career for the day!
