ARE you looking for ways to supplement your income over the festive period? Well, then working in the hospitality sector – and for Fire Hospitality in particular – could be Santa‘s best Christmas present for students living in the South.

Since blogs first appeared in the 1990s, students have been given lots of advice on how to save money – or earn more cash…, particularly at Christmas time.

After two years when the impact of the pandemic restricted seasonal employment opportunities, the heralding of the cost-of-living crisis and rapid consumer inflation has put many students – already saddled with meeting the cost of their loans when they graduate – facing real financial hardship.

Rising food bills, considerable jumps in rents, the cost of petrol and transport generally, electricity and gas prices doubling and even tripling the cost of essential heating – the list goes on.

But luckily for students studying in London – where the company also has a base – and across the South, Fire Hospitality can help you ride out the financial storm facing many young people.

According to a recent Guardian report, there are 44,000 mature students aged over 25 in the UK who face the biggest pressures on their ability to carry on studying as a result of the worsening economic situation.


Around 300,000 are in danger of being priced out of higher education, including many black students and those from working-class backgrounds.

And nearly 70,000 students – who commute to college or university, living off campus – face financial difficulties as costs keep rising, and inflation hit 10 percent for the first time in more than 30 years.

Since Fire Hospitality was founded in the spring of 2018, we have been meeting the needs of the hospitality sector to find bright, cheerful young minds who can supplement their student income and lifestyle – and fit work around their studies.

We are constantly looking for suitable candidates to work in pubs, bars, restaurants, hotels, sporting, and other large entertainment venues and complexes in the run-up to Christmas and over the New Year period.

You need to be reasonably confident and enjoy mixing with people from all backgrounds – but working in hospitality is also a great way to gain confidence in dealing with the public and learning specific skills.

Many of those – including the most crucial teamwork – are transferable to many work environments. The experience you gain at Fire Hospitality can only improve your CV going forward and make you more employable as you age.

December and January are the busiest time for the hospitality sector, with Christmas parties, family holidays, and New Year celebrations high on everyone‘s list. 

So why not get in touch immediately and become one of Santa‘s little helpers as we help fill the stockings of companies needing extra workers over the coming weeks?

We provide the highest quality temporary and permanent staff to help businesses meet their staffing needs at their busiest time of the year.

If you have experience waiting on restaurant tables, silver service waitressing, working behind a bar, preparing food in a busy kitchen, serving food and drinks at sporting events or private functions, doing reception work in hotels, or working in other front and back of house holes, then get in touch.

But equally, Fire Hospitality puts great store on finding the right kind of people to become part of our happy, friendly teams serving the public, so there is never a better time to dip your toe in the water and get your first experience of working in the hospitality industry.

We build the best – and right – teams to help busy businesses recruit the temporary staff they need, with the minimum fuss and the maximum reliability.

We can also give you the relevant training to carry out the tasks Fire Hospitality staff are expected to carry out and build and expand your experience and skill sets, which can only help you on your journey from education into the world of work.

And there is always the chance after helping the Christmas celebrations go with a bang; you could find yourself being offered more part-time work and positions into the New Year.
