The Recruitment Challenge
Recruitment has been very difficult for the hospitality industry, with a large number of skilled hospitality staff leaving in search of more secure employment due
to the Covid lockdowns. Added to that, the market is missing over 500,000 overseas workers since the pandemic started. Finding talent in this market is almost like finding a needle in a haystack. With a brand new venue opening on the horizon, we had 3 weeks to
find an entire team of people. Never one to turn down a challenge, we took on the HMH account and went to work finding staff to open the new venue.
Hospitality Recruitment Solutions
Rent a Recruiter stepped in and got straight to work on finding a team of 29 cooks/baristas and floor staff to open This Way Canteen. We were able to secure an opening team in time for the open day. Once the canteen was set up and ready Rent a Recruiter started working head office roles such as Digital Marketing Manager, Senior Graphic Designer and an Exec Chef for their next upcoming venue opening in Bondi.
“Jess and the Rent-A-Recruiter team have had a phenomenal impact on our businesses: working quickly to source, screen and set up interviews with candidates, we were able to boost our team numbers for increasing trade and new business openings at a rapid rate and with quality talent. I could not recommend Jess and her team’s services more highly.”
