Premier Inn owner Whitbread are to axe up to 6,000 jobs as the pandemic is still having an impact on the business.

A total of 18% of the workforce across their hotels and restaurant brands, which includes Beefeater pubs and Brewers Fayre chains will be affected.

The company are hoping that most redundancies will be made through voluntary redundancy and lowered contracted hours for a few staff.

Alison Brittain, chief executive of Whitbread said, “With demand for travel remaining subdued, we are now having to make some very difficult decisions, and it is with great regret that today we are announcing our intention to enter into a consultation process that could result in up to 6,000 redundancies in the UK, of which it is hoped that a significant proportion can be achieved voluntarily.”
