Demand for those working in hotel and contract catering jobs in the UK increased in June.
This is according to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG Report on Jobs for June.
It revealed that temporary hotel and catering positions had an index reading of 55.1, with anything above 50 meaning that demand increased.
As for permanent hospitality jobs, the index reading was slightly lower at 52.1.
The report also reveals that, in the hospitality industry, the main positions lacking skilled candidates are chef jobs.
Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, explained that there was an increase in the number of people placed into permanent jobs in June.
“This ties in with last month’s official jobs figures and means that we have now seen 23 months of continued expansion in permanent job placements,” he added.
The Hospitality Employment Index, which was created by People 1st and Caterer.com, recently revealed that more restaurant manager jobs are posted online than any other type of hospitality job.
