What would be the effects of Brexit on the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors.

British job hunters looking for work in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors will be able to ‘name their price’ when it comes to wages, should EU Nationals be forced out of the country when the Brexit process is complete.

That’s the claim from a recruitment expert specialising in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors, following market research which revealed almost two thirds of organisations in the industries will lose staff if a reciprocal agreement is not reached.

Mike Wood, managing director of Detail2Recruitment– which undertook the research in March 2017 – predicts retail, hospitality and leisure brands could be forced to close some of their doors, especially in the more provincial areas, if foreign workers are asked to return to their home country. This, he says, is due to a lack of willingness from British job seekers to undertake lower level and service-based job vacancies, which EU Nationals are typically keener to fill.
