The Alliance for Bakery Students & Trainees has launched a scheme to help bakery students and trainees find jobs.
The UK and Ireland-wide scheme is called #HireMe and is open to students and trainees who have finished their qualification or are studying.
It aims to benefit both the students and also bakery employers who are struggling to find people with the qualifications required to work for them.
Students who are looking for a job in the baking industry can simply add their details, such as name, email, area of the country they wish to work in and a short personal statement on http://www.abst.org.uk/hire-me.html.
This information is then sent out to bakery employers in the UK and Ireland, who can review everyone that is looking for work in their area, and contact them directly to arrange to see a CV or for an interview.
The service is free for members.
