Step 3 - The Reopening

Posted by in Office Updates on 12th May 2021

According to Monday's announcement from the government, the roadmap is on track and the planned Step 3 easements will go ahead on 17th May (next Monday), the Prime Minister has confirmed.

The majority of the indoor and remaining outdoor economy can reopen, and gathering limits will increase indoors and outdoors too. This includes “indoor hospitality”, HURRAH! We will be allowed to eat inside, and that includes restaurants in hotels too!

Up to 6 people or 2 households will be able to meet indoors and up to 30 people outdoors. Up to 30 people will now be able to attend weddings, receptions, and...

  The Burnt Chef Project

As we emerge from Lockdown and what has been a super stressful time for everyone, we thought it was worth highlighting this amazing social enterprise that does great work within the hospitality industry.

The Burnt Chef Project’s sole intention is to eradicate mental health stigma within the hospitality industry.

In a survey of 1273 hospitality professionals, 8 out of 10 them reported having experienced at least one mental health issue during their career. That’s an astonishing statistic. Read it again. That means that if you went to a restaurant to eat and they had 10 staff there, 8 of them...

Michelin Stars awarded

Posted by in Website on 26th January 2021

the list of Michelin Star restaurants has been released.

Some have been newly awarded, some renewed and others, increased. 

17 restaurants were newly awarded One Star at the latest Great Britain & Ireland 2021 Michelin Guide Launch which took place on Monday 25th January. Those restaurants are listed here.

Under current circumstances, some may look on the award of a Michelin star as being a bit daft and possibly unnecessary. But it means SO much to the establishments that have worked so hard, despite being closed for much of 2020. Starting this year with a new award, or having a current star renewed, can...

Posted by in Office Updates on 6th January 2021

We are open, we are Open and finally we are OPEN.

Welcome to 2021 and it would appear that we will be starting as we left 2020 not that long ago.

Of course, we have something to look forward to in the coming months with the roll out of the vaccines which will hopefully enable us all to slowly return to a normal kind of life. Remember what that was like before face masks, constant hand cleansing and of course a cheeky pint after work?

New Government 3-Tier System explained.

Posted by in Website on 24th November 2020

As we approach the easing of Lockdown 2, we here at Paramount Personnel have carried out a bit of research and dug out the useful information which we think will be most important to our clients and friends, within the hospitality industry.

The straightforward advice from the Government continues to be as follows:

Remember, ‘Hands. Face. Space’.

  • Hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
  • Face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
