Restaurateurs raid colleges amid staff crisis
Omar Allibhoy did something brave this weekend: he opened a restaurant. It was not just that the new branch of his Tapas Revolution chain flung open its doors in Brighton after the deepest recession in 300 years. Also testing the Spanish entrepreneur’s nerve was the search for the 25 chefs and waiting staff needed in the weeks running up to the launch.
“Nobody wants to be hired,” said Allibhoy, 37, who is still seven workers short at his latest restaurant, which serves sharing dishes, paella and wine. Hiring was so difficult, Allibhoy had to drag his two sons, aged 2 and 7, into work last week as he carried out intensive last-minute training to bring raw recruits up to scratch.
