1,500 jobs at risk in hotels across England and Scotland
Around 1,500 jobs at hotels managed by hospitality group LGH in England and Scotland are at risk of being cut.
LGH, which manages 55 sites including some Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza hotels, has entered a consultation period for redundancy following the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the business.
The news comes as hospitality and retail businesses across the country have taken a hit as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
This week alone, high street store WH Smith and restaurant chain Pizza Express have both announced over a thousand job losses each.
Joanne Monk, group people and development director at LGH, commented on the challenges faced by the hospitality sector: “There is absolutely not the demand [for hotels] that there was before the pandemic.
She added: “[Redundancy] isn’t what anybody wants.”
