How to Find Your Niche in the Hospitality and Leisure Industry

Guest post by Zoe Price

If there is any one field that is literally crying for help, it would be hospitality and leisure, in every position imaginable. After 3+ years of covid concerns and restrictions, people are just ready to live a normal life once again. For this reason, it is forecast that the hospitality sector will see significant growth in the coming year. That said, there are vacancies within every niche and job in the industry, so now is the time to see if you have job skills in hospitality and leisure that can land you the job of your dreams.

Job Description Examples for Hospitality and Leisure Roles

Since there are so many niches within the industry, it might be best to check out a hospitality and leisure job description you are interested in found within the long list of Hiring People’s hospitality and leisure job descriptions. An example of a job description for a hotel manager would be quite different from a job description for a tour guide. To get just an idea of how there are so many jobs typically available, you might find descriptions and duties for:

  • Bartender
  • Bar Manager
  • Baker
  • Hostess
  • Chef
  • Concierge
  • Hospitality Manager

There are dozens more jobs in everything from the tourist industry to restaurants and pubs to name a few. No two jobs will have the same requirements in education for a job in hospitality and leisure, so it takes researching them post by post. In addition, the responsibilities of a head chef will be quite different than the hospitality and leisure responsibilities of a concierge. In like manner, head chef duties would be significantly different since this isn’t a customer-facing role than a hostess who interacts with every customer they seat.

Which Niche Suits You Best?

Hospitality and leisure is actually a huge service industry in that there are so many niches within which to work. Consider for a moment that there are:

  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Pubs
  • Night Clubs
  • Travel and Tourism
  • Beauty Services

And the list goes on and on and on. Therefore, it is imperative that you look at your current qualifications as well as any training, education or experience you have had. Even if you want to change jobs from a customer-facing role like a bartender to a sous chef in the kitchen, it might be possible based on your experience in the industry and your training other than for your current position. Did you realise that many of today’s head chefs started in other positions within a restaurant? It was working in that niche that inspired them to achieve more.

It’s all about just how serious you are for working in that niche that will land you the job you are best suited for. A career awaits you, so what will it be?
