The UK’s No 1 job hiring app offers paid work in a Michelin-starred restaurant.

LONDON, 23 OCTOBER 2018: Job Today has launched a pilot Bar Academy offering paid work experience to job seekers in the restaurant industry.

The experimental Bar Academy will take place inside London’s Michelin-starred Pied a Terre, a gastronomic French restaurant in Fitzrovia. Restaurateur and owner David Moore will tutor 10 job seekers, teaching each how to create three unique cocktail masterpieces. One applicant will then be awarded a week of paid work experience at Pied a Terre.

JOB TODAY is the UK’s number 1 hiring app, with over 4 million users, helping young job seekers get hired in 24 hours. As well as connecting them with thousands of job opportunities they are now offering vital training to help reach their job goals – in this case paid work experience.

Employment trailblazer Polina Montano, co-founder of JOB TODAY, is spearheading the Bar Academy initiative offering work experience to job seekers. Polina explains: “Through JOB TODAY we are giving employers a platform to offer paid work experience and job seekers the opportunity to understand more about the industry they want to work in. This program is the perfect chance for job seekers to become hands on and learn new skills, therefore helping them become more employable. It’s a fantastic opportunity to make contacts and learn tricks of the trade from talented peers.”

JOB TODAY understand it’s becoming increasingly harder to get on the job ladder and know learning vital skills through unpaid work experience is becoming more commonplace.  As a result, Bar Academy is the first of a wider Job Academy they’ve created for the casual job market. JOB TODAY’s learning academy will soon be extended into cooking, admin, cleaning and more.

JOB TODAY is a unique hiring solution that connects millions of young jobseekers to open vacancies at local businesses around them, brining hiring online for the first time even for casual jobs.
