Hit Scotland


Hospitality Industry Trust Scotland is a Scottish based charity whose mission is to assist people to achieve their potential within Scottish hospitality.

Since 1994 HIT Scotland has helped those training to enter the industry and those already within, to realise their full potential. This is achieved through bursaries, scholarships, the Emerging Talent conference and other industry initiatives.  We run over 25 events in Scotland every year and 1 in London. These events raise considerable sums which allow us to fulfil our objectives, and bring the industry together.  If you'd like to see the full event calendar click here.
