Our immigration team has sector specific experience and can provide legal support and advice to businesses in the hospitality and retail sectors on all aspects of immigration law, including on recruiting and retaining workers from outside of the UK.

Shortages in the sector are well-documented; UK Hospitality is campaigning for action to solve worker shortages and says on its website:

“After all, we’re a people first sector. Unfortunately, the entire sector has been struggling with worker shortages for far too long. There remains significant shortages across hospitality with 132,000 vacancies – 48% above pre-pandemic levels.”
