Hospitality sector booming from Vegan-uary


More job roles are being created within the hospitality sector due to an increase in the number of people following a vegan diet.

The report, carried out by the UK’s largest hospitality job board, found that the industry is seeing a significant rise in vegan-specific roles.

According to the findings, vegan related jobs within the sector increased by more than 123% since 2017, with an additional 300 jobs advertised across the UK.

Neil Pattison, Director at, commented, “As veganism and vegetarianism become increasingly popular, we’re not only seeing a rise in vegan-only restaurants but hospitality businesses diversifying their offering. The addition of dietary specific menus, partnerships with certified suppliers and an increase in vegan-specific skills being sought out by employers, are all designed to ensure consumers have more choice when dining out.

“Whether it’s the avocado effect, people looking to eat healthier or eat less meat for environmental reasons, veganism is certainly here to stay. As a result, we’re seeing the industry throw its support behind veganism and other dietary requirements by upskilling existing staff, employing specialist chefs and front of house staff, as well as working with certified suppliers.

“We’re continuing to help support hospitality businesses as new trends are identified to find diverse and qualified staff members that can help respond to growing consumer demand.”
