According to a recent report from the Centre for London Think Tank, the number of Chefs leaving the UK hospitality industry each year is at a rate of 20,000.
The report says that “the growing number of Chefs has not been matched by an improvement of culinary education and training,” clearly, something needs to be improved.
With high stress levels, a national skill shortage, and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit always looming, being a Chef and working in a satisfactory environment can become somewhat of a rarity.
The worry linked to such short Chef numbers in the country is as present as ever.
Pair this with the increasing collapse of chain restaurants in towns and cities, finding fair and equal work is becoming quite a task for those in the profession, and the hospitality industry in general, up and down the country.
With these in mind, we think that it’s refreshing for Chefs looking for work to be reminded why they chose to be one in the first place.
Working in this busy and challenging environment shouldn’t be as hard work as some are finding it to be. We love to remind our chefs that the work they are doing is being recognised, and that it can be rewarding with the right support.
By working together to build a fairer working experience, they can rely on CJUK to make their work what it should be; worth working for and giving you the freedom to choose how you want to work.
