Public finds hospitality sector has most intimidating professionals

Recruiters could carve out a niche for themselves by supplying non-intimidating candidates to hotels and bars, if new research is anything to go by.

Research of 2,000 UK adults by law firm Fletcher Solicitors, released today, finds 68% of Britons rated hospitality professionals, such as chefs and bartenders, the most intimidating.

Financial service professionals (64%) such as bank managers, accountants and bookkeepers ranked in second place, with trades people (59%), including builders, plumbers and electricians, following on in third place.

Conversely, 73% of Britons feel healthcare workers including doctors and nurses were ranked as the most likeable professionals, proving the right bedside manner goes a long way.
