Covid-19 has re-shaped the dimensions of supply and demand in the UK labour market.
  • Labour demand in travel, hospitality and much of the retail market has collapsed.
  • Labour demand in food production, food supply, supermarket retail, transport and delivery services is massively outstripping current supply.

We need, more than ever, to come together as a country to keep these essential services running and provide support for hard working employees who are doing everything they can to support customers during these challenging times.

We are helping to recruit and train a temporary workforce to #FeedTheNation

As the UK’s biggest recruiter, we are supporting our nation’s supermarkets and supply chains by responding to the increased demand in temporary job requirements.

Staffline Recruitment and PeoplePlus (the UK’s leading adult training provider) are responding to this unprecedented challenge in the form of a nationwide recruitment campaign, to support the UK’s essential services, including food supply, retail and delivery.
