Growing Hospitality

Hospitality Connection is the perfect vehicle for combining my two great professional passions and building on over 20 years of industry experience across the hospitality and recruitment industries.

Hospitality Connection has been set up to do differently. Building on my experience as both a hotelier and a recruiter, I understand the challenges of running a viable hospitality business, but also the pre-requisites for successful recruitment. This insight, combined with a flexible, responsive and personable approach to meeting client – and candidate needs – means that Hospitality Connection is exceptionally well placed to support you with your hard to fill, specialist or indeed mainstream roles. 

Hospitality Connection shares the ambitions and aspirations of the clients and candidates it has been established to support. Innovative and forward thinking, but with extensive experience and industry insight, we are already representing successful and high-profile clients, ranging from national hotel groups to gastropubs, providing staff at all grades and functions, on both a temporary and permanent basis.

Client Feedback

"I have been sourcing staff through James since 2019 after using a string of agencies that had promised excellent results but failed to deliver. 

James is one of the few consultants who swiftly delivers on promises and working in a fast paced hospitality environment, speed is crucial. 

Thanks to James I have an amazing Sous Chef, Senior Chef de Partie (originally sourced by James as a Commis, but quickly progressed) and most recently a new Junior Sous. I would recommend James and Hospitality Connection to anyone wanting quick results, staff that last and a friendly service."

"Having recently started working with James for hard to find two quality chefs for our one rosette kitchen, it was clear that he provided a genuinely personal and creative service. The use of imagery on the job adverts used, and his ability to source people in a market which is the toughest ever is to be commended. The result was four candidates in quick succession resulting in two successful appointments. James is personable and persistent with high levels of communication which keeps all parties up to speed at all stages of the process.
