The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has launched the Jobs Factory, a global hospitality network designed to connect talent with employers across the sector.
Powered by Hosco, a professional network specially designed for the hospitality industry, the innovative platform aims to offer solutions for hospitality recruitment.
The Jobs Factory harnesses Hosco’s power of machine learning, algorithms, and deep learning to match candidates with suitable positions, both locally and internationally. Job-seekers are able to create a profile, search for positions that match their experience and skills, and set up job alerts to be informed of the latest opportunities.
The platform also helps tourism businesses and organizations to find and recruit the best talent.
“The pandemic has hit global tourism hard. Up to 120 million jobs are at risk. However, tourism has a long history of adapting and embracing innovation. The Jobs Factory will be a great help to the millions of people who depend on tourism,”UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili said.
All of UNWTO’s 159 member states will be invited to use the Jobs Factory as their national tourism recruitment platform as will its more than 500 affiliate members, ranging from businesses to universities and think tanks.
Additionally, through the Jobs of the Future Observatory, member states can also monitor current and future skills development to analyse trends. This will allow them to forecast and identify gaps and mismatches and make data-driven decisions.
