rising unemployment figures, ALP’s recent labour supply survey identified that
92% of food growers and manufacturers believe there will be insufficient
critical workers to meet the food supply chain’s
needs in 2021.
Labour challenges are currently further exacerbated by higher Covid related absence rates.
The ‘Extra Workers Needed Portal’ is one way that the ALP is helping the food supply chain to meet this challenge. It’s a straightforward concept - any food supply chain business that needs extra workers can post their requirements for free in the portal and be contacted by UK wide and local GLAA licensed ALP labour providers that can supply them.
David Camp, ALP Chief Executive says, ‘This portal is a quick and easy way for businesses to reach hundreds of licensed labour providers across the UK, maximising their chances of sourcing the right number and quality of workers at the right time. From a farm needing a few workers, to a food producer or distribution warehouse needing hundreds, the portal is freely available for all businesses to use.’
Businesses can register to use the portal here.
