PR: Staff language in the tourism industry

By | News

The official language of Gibraltar is English, so yes, staff should be able to speak it fluently. Guests to Gibraltar will expect to be able to converse in English. Obviously when employing someone, especially someone who is public-facing, businesses should take this into account and employ those who can speak English first and any other languages second.

Sometimes you may have a candidate who has no official qualifications in English but can speak the language very well, and some times you have the opposite; someone with qualifications but can not speak English at all. It is important that they can understand and communicate in English easily and fluently.

The GFSB is here to help and support local businesses, we have been offering subsidised language courses for years and we will continue to do so, in order to help the business community offer the best customer service it can.

TESTIMONIALS

We have been members of the GFSB for several years now and find it a valuable membership for our business. Getting to use the training room facilities and all that they provide there is a great help for us in our business. The admin team are always very friendly and helpful to us if we have any questions. We particularly like the regular breakfast meetings and the speed networking events which allow us to meet other members and learn valuable information.

Brenda CubyBC Training

We have found the GFSB to be a very useful resource for obtaining local business advice, as well as networking opportunities. They have been instrumental in helping us to shape our business.

Paul JenningsRock IT

The GFSB networking events are of tremendous value to our business development strategy, having opened doors and provided very interesting leads from local companies, who have in turn shown a strong demand for our services. They have helped us both grow and further promote our local business and services to a wider corporate audience.

Brendan GoltElitech

“We are a new local business still in our first year of trading. We joined the GFSB following a recommendation from another member and we are very pleased that we did. It offers great value for money, the staff are friendly and helpful and the events they have organised thus far have provided excellent networking opportunities as well as helping us to gain valuable insight into various local industries.”
