We’ve broken down what feel are the key advantages for you as our client: 

Saving Time for You, Means We Also Save You Money

If you advertise an attractive Catering and Hospitality job, you may receive an overwhelming number of applications, many of which may not meet your requirements. Sorting through the unsuitable applications can be time-consuming and take away from your core responsibilities of managing your kitchen or restaurant. However, at Twentysix Recruitment, we have the expertise to handle this issue on your behalf, freeing up your time to focus on your strengths. Rather than being inundated with a stack of unfiltered CVs, you will receive a handful of high-quality CVs from candidates who possess the necessary skills, qualities, and experience you require. Doesn't that sound like a much easier solution?

It’s Our Job to Utilise the Latest Recruitment Techniques and Technology

The hospitality and catering industries are constantly evolving, and so is the recruitment landscape. Unless you keep a close eye on industry developments, you may not be aware of the most effective recruitment strategies. 

For instance, do you know which of the hundreds of catering and hospitality job boards is the most effective for your vacancy? Do you know how to leverage social media in a job search? Are you familiar with where catering and hospitality candidates look for job opportunities and the best ways to connect with them? 

As a specialised recruitment agency, we possess in-depth knowledge of these crucial factors and can confidently answer YES to each of these questions. Our expertise enables us to recruit for you in a highly targeted and effective manner. 

Our Procedures Are Efficient, Meticulous, and Rigorous

In the past, catering and hospitality recruitment may have been relatively straightforward, but in recent times, businesses must comply with an increasing number of regulations. As a result, in addition to conducting reference checks, our recruitment processes include rigorous eligibility and background checks to ensure that candidates have the legal right to work in the UK.

Access to Passive Candidates 

Passive Candidates are highly skilled individuals who are not actively seeking new catering or hospitality jobs but would be open to the right opportunity. As a central figure within the catering and hospitality industry, our consultants are continually networking and meeting professionals in various roles. These passive candidates, who are not actively searching for job openings online, are often invisible to restaurants, hotels, and general recruiters. Therefore, our access to them is invaluable. 

These are just a few of the benefits of choosing Twentysix Recruitment as your Catering and Hospitality recruitment agency. Contact us by phone or email, and we'll be thrilled to discuss your recruitment needs.
