Hospitality recruiter The Change Group outlined a seven-point plan for the new UK prime minister, Theresa May, to support continued growth in British hospitality in the wake of the UK referendum decision to leave the EU.
The Change Group’s seven-point plan includes incentives to encourage more Britons to work in hospitality as well as to allow skilled migrants from the EU to continue to work in the UK:
Craig Allen, director and co-founder of The Change Group, said that strengthening business has to be a priority for Theresa May’s new government through the Brexit negotiations.
"Leaving the EU can become a plus for the hospitality sector as long as the new government creates an open economy that focuses on boosting investment, employment and business success. As the fourth largest employer in the UK, it is vital that the new government listens to requests from the hospitality and tourism sector, otherwise both the industry and employment within it will suffer and businesses may close," he said.
“If Theresa May truly wants to lead a "country that works not for a privileged few but for every one of us" then supporting the hospitality sector is important. Hospitality is highly inclusive enabling people from all backgrounds, educations and walks of life to thrive, no matter what their qualifications and where they went to school. Many of our top chefs came from very underprivileged backgrounds, and found success because of the opportunities provided by working in hospitality.”
