Stability in the Hotel Industry

Posted by in Website on 30th July 2021

From the reports that we’ve been reading and the people that we’ve been talking to, investment in hotels is at a very high level. With international travel still being an issue, staycations, or holidaying in the country that you live in, have seen a huge boom.

Why is this interesting to us you might say?

Well, it’s no secret that the hospitality industry has found it harder to recruit since the lockdown of 2021 eased. Many people from the industry had to find alternative work last year and with the Government restrictions stopping the industry from being able to do any kind...

Freedom Day - 19th July

Posted by in Website on 9th July 2021

Initially planned for 21st June, Freedom Day is now likely to go ahead on Monday 19th July. The final decision on whether to proceed will be taken next Monday (12th July), but we will keep everything crossed that it goes ahead as planned.

What does this mean for the hospitality industry then?

Masks will become voluntary in all settings, including shops, hospitality venues and public transport. We’re still being advised to exercise ‘personal judgement’ and we’re sure that some venues will still ‘ask’ patrons to wear a mask when entering and exiting the premises. We’ve heard of small venues who are planning...

Tiverton Town U-18's Sponsorship

Posted by in Office Updates on 1st July 2021

You can tell that football is close to the heart of our MD (Dean Croft) as we have once again got involved in supporting a local team. This time though, it's on a slightly larger scale.

Dean, once an aspiring and pretty decent footballer himself (although, don't tell him we told you that) has always had a passion for the game and has been involved in football at some level, for most of his life.

Last season, Dean was asked if he'd be interested in taking an active role in helping to develop the Under 18's squad at Tiverton Town Football Club, a...

Culm Sampford Under 9’s Lions

Here at Paramount Personnel were proud to be able to sponsor a local youth football team from Uffculme. We’ve paid for their new kit which we hope you’ll agree looks fantastic… well, the kids look delighted with it don’t they?

We wanted to make sure the coaches get a special mention too, they are amazing. They give up their own free time to help organise the children and run everything that is involved in organising youth football.

The Burnt Chef Project

Posted by in Office Updates on 16th April 2021

  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...
