Employment & Skills
Great people are at the heart of pubs and breweries, with the sector supporting over 900,000 jobs across the UK.
We provide guidance and information to help our members develop and grow brilliant teams, and lobby for policies to allow them to recruit, train and retain passionate and talented individuals, offering them a rewarding career whilst helping their businesses to thrive.
The BBPA is a founding funder and proud supporter of Hospitality Rising, the first sector-wide campaign designed to recruit and retain brilliant people into hospitality to help our brilliant industry thrive.
We support campaigns like Hospitality Rising, Hospitality Works and initiatives such as Only A Pavement Away, to highlight the great career opportunities and to attract talent from all sections of the population.
We continue to call for changes to the Apprenticeship Levy in order to offer greater flexibility and choice for employers in the way they recruit and train talent.
We engage with our members to make sure the needs and voice of the beer and pub industry is heard in relation to National Minimum Wage rates.
We make the case for improvements to the immigration system, to make it easier and more cost-effective to recruit overseas workers with the right skills to work in our members buisnesses.
