Hotel Services Manager Chef James Clear (pictured), who will lead Care UK’s contribution to #FairKitchens, said: “I am very much looking forward to working with a movement which focuses on ‘people first’, which is something Care UK truly believes.

“When I joined Care UK I was inspired by Food & Services Director, Jon Bicknell’s, vision of ‘Dining with Dignity’ which ensures the dining experience for our residents is the best it can be. I have learnt that to deliver this you need an engaged, motived team. I am looking forward to sharing how we do this with others across the globe so it can benefit their businesses too.”

Alex Hall, Executive Chef at Unilever Food Solutions and #FairKitchens ambassador, added: “I am very excited to have Care UK as a partner of the movement. There is a lot the catering industry can learn from the people centric way it runs its operation.

“I also think it is a brilliant opportunity to showcase the care sector as a place to work, especially in light of the pandemic. Sharing the stories and examples from Care UK could inspire others to consider it as an alternate career path.”
