In Need of Team Members? Work with Us!

ONLY A PAVEMENT AWAY is a charity founded by representatives from the hospitality industry who believe that everyone deserves the chance to find and forge a career. Our aim is to act as a conduit to employment to help those people struggling to get into work and overcome those hurdles by helping them find jobs within the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry. 

Outside of the moral benefits, the project is underpinned by a strong commercial and financial benefit to the hospitality, pub & restaurant industry whilst reducing the ever-increasing strain on government funding required for those who find themselves in such extreme circumstances.

To date we have supported 130 people facing homelessness into jobs in the hospitality industry. This year, we want to support a further 250 people into new careers giving each the chance of a more stable future.  

How does the Only A Pavement Away employment programme work?

We connect our network of hospitality employers to our partner charities working with people facing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans via our free bespoke hospitality Jobs Board. 

By registering with Only A Pavement Away as an employers, you will be able to post vacancies and have access to our library of over 250 available and work-ready candidates. 

Our partner charities create a Candidate Profile for each person looking for work and apply to the vacancies posted, on behalf of those they support. 

All the candidates registered on our Jobs Board also have access to our free online hospitality training platform. Once employed, the candidate becomes an Only A Pavement Away member, and a 12-month support network is put in place for them.

Only a Pavement Away understands the importance employment plays in breaking the cycle of homelessness not just through income which helps sustain housing but by raising confidence, improving mental health and wellbeing, increasing self-esteem, and creating new personal and social networks.

We are always happy to hear from forward thinking employers from across the hospitality sector who are looking to recruit new team members with strong work ethics and a desire to succeed.   Please get in touch with our team at workwithus@onlyapavementaway.co.uk
