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

  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...

Online Interviews

Being interviewed online for a new job is pretty standard these days, but it’s also something that is very new to everyone. However, we here at Paramount Personnel think we can help. We have spoken to the members of the team and asked for their best tips, to help you feel at ease when facing your potential new employer via your computer or smartphone.

Firstly, think about your surroundings. Your new boss is going to get a good look inside your home, so make sure you’re comfortable with what is in the background. We’ve seen lots of people being interviewed...

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?

We have many clients still looking to add to their teams and we are here to help you...

The hospitality bounce-back

Posted by in Office Updates on 30th September 2020

So, the hospitality industry has been up and running (kind of) since Lockdown was lifted, for a couple of months now. Doors were flung open, staff unfurloughed, orders placed with wholesalers and everyone was keen to return to some kind of normal.

The Eat Out to Help Out scheme was introduced by the Government, and the general public flooded back in their droves to their favourite establishments. They spent their money and enjoyed the food and drinks. Undoubtedly, this has helped our beloved industry get back on its feet, so for that we are grateful.

Staff are being hired too. We have...

Regardless of your thoughts on the new ‘rule of 6’, if you want to be compliant and run an establishment properly, here are all the rules and regulations gathered together in one useful place; we hope you find it useful.

The Government guidelines for everyone in England from today are as follows: “it will be against the law to meet people you do not live with in a group larger than 6 (unless you are meeting as a household or support bubble).” You can read the full guidelines here

There are of course, several exceptions to the rule. They include things like...

The Hospitality Industry is FINALLY back!

Posted by in Office Updates on 3rd July 2020

Pubs, bars, cafes, restaurants, hotels and more can finally fling open their doors and welcome everyone back inside.

On Friday 20th March 2020, the Prime Minister ordered all cafes, pubs and restaurants to close, to help tackle coronavirus. The following Monday (23rd), the general public were instructed to stay at home too. Lockdown was in full effect.


15 weeks later, an eternity in terms of running a business, our industry is busy prepping itself for relaunch. Some have had the ability to offer takeaway services and deliveries, but that hasn’t been the case for all. Hotels for example, which have laid dormant...
