Demand for hospitality professionals more than doubled last week, up 134% in the week ending 21st June, according to new research.

Statistics from job board network, Broadbean Technology shows that the jump in hospitality vacancies is indicative of many businesses gearing up to reopen on 4th July, as confirmed in the Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement last week.  

Alex Fourlis, managing director at Broadbean Technology commented: “There’s no doubt that hospitality has been one of the hardest hit sectors during Covid-19, so to see vacancies up again is a truly promising sign for the UK economy. “As the easing of lockdown rules continue to be announced by the Government and with cafes, pubs and restaurants given the green light to reopen in July, we anticipate this hiring activity to continue, particularly as many employers battle to get new staff on board quickly.”
