Cornavirus Update


We understand that with most hospitality and tourism businesses having closed their doors in March, that finding a job is challenging at the moment. Whether you have worked for Consensio before or not, we have put this page together to provide resources for training, support and finding employment opportunities.

Roles are slowing starting to emerge for the summer season, so it is worth registering with suitable recruitment agencies now and monitoring job boards regularly. Keep an open mind about roles and locations and do your research, there may be something out there that you’ve never considered before and it could lead to a whole new adventure or even career.  We have included recruitment agencies which we have successfully worked with, along with some useful job boards.

We have listed links to free online learning and courses which may be useful to complement your current experience and knowledge on your CV. Additionally, you will find links to support services which are available to support those in need.

Finally, we have detailed our plans for recruitment for Consensio for next winter 2020/21.
