BBPA response to the latest ONS labour market statistics

Responding to the latest ONS labour market statistics, Emma McClarkin, Chief Executive of the British Beer and Pub Association said:

“Now and throughout the past 22 months the hospitality sector have experienced acute labour shortages due to varying factors from the pandemic through to Brexit. The latest labour market statistics from the ONS show just how challenging the situation is with record numbers of vacancies across the UK.

“We are calling on the Government to provide greater flexibility in current employment and skills initiatives to enable the sector to meet the challenges of recruiting and retaining a skilled and motivated pub and brewing workforce to help drive the economic recovery throughout the UK.”
