STRIDE gets off to a flyer!


USEL, Northern Ireland’s largest supporter of people with disabilities and health conditions, are working in partnership with SSP, the food travel experts at Belfast International Airport to create job opportunities for people with disabilities and health conditions.

The partnership is being delivered through the employment organisation’s new ESF funded project STRIDE, which provides pre-employment support to those living with disabilities or health-related conditions.

The programme is currently recruiting job seekers who are actively seeking work but find their health requirements pose additional barriers to work within the hospitality sector at Belfast International Airport in a variety of roles.

SSP have over 50 years’ experience in the travel market and have a presence in over 30 countries with over 450 brands in their portfolio including Starbucks and Burger King which are located at Belfast International Airport.

They deliver world-class food and beverage outlet programmes based on the highest levels of customer service, quality of food and environment.

Speaking about the partnership David Cowan, Head of Employment Services for Usel said:

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with SSP to create jobs for people living with a disability or health condition.

“SSP are recognised for providing outstanding food services to people who are travelling through Belfast International Airport and this alone brings a diverse dynamic to the job roles they are seeking to fill.

“People who join the programme will have access to full training and ongoing support.

“We have worked very closely with the SSP operational team to ensure we can provide the best opportunities to anyone who is interested.”
