A recent article in The Caterer highlighted the UK hospitality industry’s increasing demand for qualified chefs, including the projected need to recruit 11,000 chefs by 2022. The Institute’s latest management guide proposes a sensible solution to this pressing problem of hospitality vacancies: hiring trained ex-offenders. An estimated 10 million people in the UK have a criminal record – ranging from driving citations to more serious infractions. Hospitality employers can’t afford to ignore this sizeable pool of candidates, the majority of whom are eager to find employment and avoid re-offending.

Employing Ex-offenders: Making the Right Choice, signposts key resources and organisations that can help hospitality employers easily, equitably and correctly employ ex-offenders with the right skills in suitable hospitality roles.
