Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - Nijobfinder - BY ALAN JONES

ONE in 10 work­ers in restau­rants, bars, ho­tels and other hos­pi­tal­ity busi­ness is think­ing of leav­ing the UK be­cause of Brexit, a new study re­veals.

Some man­agers in the in­dus­try fear they will be forced to close as a re­sult of Bri­tain leav­ing the EU, re­search found.

A sur­vey of more than 400 hos­pi­tal­ity work­ers and 260 man­agers showed that the sector could face sig­nif­i­cant staff short­ages, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by Plan­day.

Half of work­ers said Brexit had made the UK a less wel­com­ing place to live, while two out of five did not be­lieve the Gov­ern­ment un­der­stood or rep­re­sented the needs of EU ci­ti­zens who work in hos­pi­tal­ity in Bri­tain.

Al­most half of man­agers said the Gov­ern­ment should of­fer as­sis­tance to help the sector deal with Brexit.

John Coldicutt, chief com­mer­cial of­fi­cer at Plan­day, said: “These find­ings show to us the depth of the po­ten­tial im­pact of Brexit on the UK econ­omy.”
