    Jobseekers are now able to access a new Government-backed employment programme designed to fill vacancies in the hospitality sector. 

    The Hospitality Sector-based Work Academy Programme (SWAP) was recently launched by DWP in collaboration with UK Hospitality. 
    The pilot scheme is set to launch in Liverpool before being rolled out to other major cities over the coming months. It will see benefit claimants gain an industry-recognised accreditation, endorsed by industry leaders including Greene King, Marriot Hotels, and ACC Liverpool. 

    The scheme is designed to provide tailored training for jobseekers from industry experts, allowing them to move into a career in hospitality, while boosting workforce participation in the sector and helping to grow the economy. 

    The programme will culminate with a guaranteed job interview for all participants, helping jobseekers with a valuable progression opportunity to apply their new skills and a pathway to apprenticeships.
