The Contract Catering sector is experiencing a significant shift towards more premium product offerings as consumer expectations continue to increase. As a result, the need for more food and beverage centric talent in these environments is placing more pressure on the already short talent market. It is a trend that is also visible across Accommodation, Pubs and Clubs.
As small to medium sized operators continue to hold and increase market share, the employment landscape is shifting, resulting in more challenging recruitment processes.
Contract Catering has evolved to become a domain in which innovators and thought leaders can execute to a high level. Hastings has developed a strong network of clients with the sector as a result of our ability to deliver premium talent to the sector through third party advocacy, enlightening candidates who may not have previously considered opportunities within the industry.
