Mandate Launch Exciting and Exclusive Training for Licensed Trade Members

Tuesday 22 June 2021

An exciting and exclusive Mandate Trade Union training initiative has been launched today Tuesday 22nd June 2021 by Jonathan Hogan, Mandate National Coordinator.  Mr Hogan commenting at the launch said, “We are offering a free hospitality training bundle exclusive for all our active licensed trade members. Many employees in pubs and hospitality have, through no fault of their own, lost their jobs and many have suffered financial loss since the onset of the global pandemic. This is an exciting once in a lifetime opportunity for some of our members to avail of a free bespoke comprehensive training package that could potentially be a life changing experience.”

Mandate in partnership with Olive Media have launched this learning initiative which they hope might form an employment stepping stone whilst assisting unemployed members towards improving their Curriculum Vitae with the objective of re-entering employment within the licensed trade sector.

Mr Hogan continued “As a progressive trade union we endeavour to support and facilitate those members who wish to either transfer their skills or to upskill within the hospitality industry for future employment opportunities. We have evidenced many of our members within the licensed trade being forced to seek alternative employment opportunities albeit on temporary contracts within the retail sector since the commencement of the pandemic. Many of these members are expressing a strong desire to return to working within the licensed trade sector when normality fully returns to our workplaces. Mandate will support our members already working within the license trade or seeking to return to the sector through this exclusive upskilling initiative.”
