3. People will always need the service sector
So long as there are people around, the service sector will be around. Because people are at the heart of what the service sector is all about! It’s part of the reason why many who work in these industries are so warm, open and down-to-earth.
As the UK slowly opens up again, many are eager to get back to the most loved parts of the service sector – their favourite restaurants, pubs, bars and shops! With that, there are a lot of roles becoming available in these industries, particularly hospitality.
Despite taking a hit, the service sector is making a comeback and you could help lead it!
4. Totally different from your conventional 9-5
Can’t stand sitting at a desk all day? Not sure if you can see yourself in an office environment?
If you prefer more hands-on jobs, staying on your feet, working practically in the moment, or interacting with people day-to-day, a job in the service sector could be a great fit for you.
And if not, it’s still a unique opportunity to experience that kind of role while you can before committing to an office job! You’ll come across a variety of interesting people from different backgrounds all with their own stories. You could make friends with people you never thought you would. And…you may like it more than you think!
5. You could build a real career if you wanted
So say you stumbled into the service sector and, like many who end up staying there, you catch the bug for it. What next?
There are so many amazing apprenticeship programmes for those who want to build a career in service. As part of these, you’ll earn industry recognised qualifications, get paid while you’re learning, and have the skills and experience to land a permanent role upon completion.
We’ve released an E-Guide all about these opportunities for school leavers or anyone interested in the service sector! Packed with insights from experts, video testimonials and more. Click here to check it out!
