New European Hospitality Skills Passport: the ticket to a new job?

Helping employers find skilled workers

By selecting the skills they are looking for, employers will see a filtered selection of matching skills passports and CVs from all over Europe, providing a highly diverse selection of candidates who match the job description as closely as possible.

In return, employers who appreciate the work done by their employees can help them increase their chances on the job market by endorsing the skills their employees obtained working for them. The Hospitality Skills Passport thereby becomes the modern form of a recommendation letter – simple, online, and much more widely usable.

The European Skills Passport is an initiative of EURES and the European Commission in association with HOTREC, the umbrella association representing hotels, restaurants, cafés and similar establishments in Europe, and the European Federation of Trade Unions in the Food, Agriculture and Tourism sectors (EFFAT).
