With thanks to the Government Job Retention Scheme

During these extremely tough times, everyone is facing their own set of challenges and there have been growing concerns about the survival of SMEs who are being significantly affected.
However, the Government has stepped in and taken measures to support not only small, independent businesses, but the wider hospitality industry. We highly welcomed the Government’s latest move to help protect jobs across the sector, including those who are self-employed.
Thanks to the Government Job Retention Scheme (GJRS), we are now able to commit to continue paying all of our 100+ staff during this time whilst activating an extended leave period for all employees for up to 12 weeks.
Our number one priority was always to look after our staff, customers and traders, and we’ve tried hard to give our people as much certainty and security as possible through this crisis. But now, we are so grateful that we can fill our staff with confidence, reassure them that we will push through this, and guarantee them a job to return to.
Successful businesses are nothing without their people, and with that in mind we strongly encourage all businesses who are eligible to consider taking up this opportunity and safeguard the livelihoods of their team.
We look forward to welcoming you all back through our doors very soon.
See you soon!
