Hospitality Recruitment Agency in Sydney and Queensland

When it comes to hospitality recruitment, it is an enormous and complex market. What makes Placed Recruitment different from other hospitality recruitment agencies is our database offers a very deep pool of conscientious, motivated individuals who have valuable experience across medium to high level positions. With more than 46,000 candidates to select from, an incredible 68 per cent of our 2018 placements were sourced directly from our database. For candidates, Placed Hospitality Recruitment offers an opportunity to be ‘found’ when their dream hospitality career becomes available. For employers, our capacity to match highly suitable jobseekers with that dream job is our calling card. .

Our history in hospitality recruitment

Placed Recruitment has built a sterling reputation over the past fifteen years since Director Geremy Glew began collating individuals’ jobseeker particulars and matching them with employers who he knew had positions to fill. Geremy formalised the company ten years ago and ever since, Placed Recruitment has been among the top hospitality employment agencies.

Our recruitment strategy goes way beyond a ‘little black book’ of names

Our database is a rich and colourful collection of industry professionals who choose to be proactive in their quest for progression in their hospitality careers . They may be looking for hotel jobs, chef jobs, restaurant jobs, hotel management jobs or other hospitality jobs. As they grow and develop new skills and qualifications, they naturally tend to look towards roles that present greater challenges and more exciting opportunities. They make regular contact with us to keep their details up to date and for our part, we are also proactive in touching base with our candidate clients when we learn of opportunities that might interest them. .

Why use Placed Recruitment to Recruit your Hospitality Staff?

Our recruitment strategy is extremely thorough and it usually begins with consulting our in-house database. The beauty of registering with Placed Recruitment’s hospitality agency is that it is 100 per cent discreet. The majority of our jobseekers are quite content in their current positions and have no immediate intention of moving on. To appear to be actively searching for a new role is not only inaccurate but could alert their employers that they may soon need to fill that role, when in reality, it may be a week or it may be a year before that person leaves. We believe that smart individuals deserve the right to be considered for more fulfilling positions that take them to the next level in their career, without being disadvantaged by visibility, if they choose to keep their intentions to themselves. Depending on the available talent for the position at hand, we may additionally scour other publicly viewable online databases. What matters is that we ultimately find the ideal match for our clients. Additionally, over our 10-year history in hospitality recruitment, we have cultivated a large network of trusted industry contacts so our pool continues to deepen all the time.
