THSC partners with apna.co to provide more jobs for travel and hospitality professionals

To increase employment opportunities among the travel and hospitality sector, THSC has signed an MoU with apna.co, a jobs platform.

Despite the emergence of new Covid variants, the pent-up demand for travel is compelling travel companies and hotels to recruit the right staff to meet customer demands.

Over the past two years, the industry witnessed several layoffs. However, this scenario is gradually changing. While some organisations are recalling employees who were let go in 2020, a few others are looking at fresh hires.

In an effort to increase job opportunities among the travel and hospitality sector, the Tourism & Hospitality Skill Council (THSC) has signed an MoU with apna.co, one of India’s largest jobs platforms. Through this partnership, apna.co will support THSC by providing easier access to hyperlocal opportunities, training sessions, upskilling courses and re-skilling courses to professionals in the travel and hospitality sector.
