The Company

Placed Recruitment is an industry leader because every one of our team have worked decades in the industry – from Head Chefs, Restaurant Managers, Hotel Managers, Pub and Club Managers. We all have a deep respect and love for the industry, and are grateful for being able to work in a business where we can recruit, assist, consult, and help shape the next industry leaders.

We are not a transactional recruitment company, we are all about getting it right – think of it like matchmaking. We are not about just putting any people in any role, it’s all about getting the right fit where the candidate gets the chance to upskill and develop in an amazing new environment – and the client gets a passionate, hard working manager who’s dedicated to growing with the company.

The Role

We typically work with managers, Head Chefs, Sous Chefs, Licensee’s, General Managers, Venue Managers, Operation Managers, Group Operations Managers, and more. We work typically with permanent recruitment, and in this role you will be trained up to be able to handle the full start to finish recruitment process, including;

  • Client Visit and Site/Role Briefs
  • Consulting and Advising Clients on how to structure their roles
  • Strategising your recruitment process, laying out your approach
  • Writing your advertisements to assist the process
  • Headhunting candidates from other venues
  • Calling candidates to discuss roles
  • Using a range of systems to source candidates
  • Assessing candidates you’ve found for their suitability for the role
  • Interviewing candidates to determine foundations
  • Referencing and putting candidates forward to clients
  • Coordinating interviews and trials
  • Navigating the offer and contract process
  • Managing start dates

This is an extensive process, and throughout our vast training process and mentorship you will develop a brand new and strong set of skills – learning a new business, developing account management ability, client relationship, a range of technologies and systems. This is a huge opportunity to upskill and use your industry knowledge to develop a new industry for yourself.

The Culture

We are all about our team here – it’s a small, mixed team from a range of different backgrounds. We have recruiters who were incredible head chefs, a fine dining superstar, a restaurant owner with a hotel background, but the thing we all have in common is that there is no ego, no sharks. We all get along brilliantly; we enjoy working with each other and sharing our knowledge. Our team is not competitive, we are collaborative, share our knowledge, share our connections with candidates and help each other out.

There is a lot of training one on one and we also have an online training programs so growth and development is a big part of what is on offer to the successful candidate. A lot of laughs, we talk restaurants food and reviews and although we take what we do professionally we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

The Successful Candidate

The successful candidate must have excellent knowledge of the industry and restaurants / properties in Sydney. We are looking for someone who genuinely is interested and passionate in hospitality and wants to help business succeed. This is a people facing role, so you need to be confident on the phone, in person meeting clients, conducting interviews. We will train you on all of this, but an ability to connect and build relationships is hugely important.

The Rewards

This is a great opportunity for the right person to gain access to a company that will mentor their career in a happy and positive environment. There is a strong, and realistic monthly commission structure in place on top of the base salary. On top of this, the opportunity for a lifestyle change – with our hours being Monday to Friday, in an office in Pyrmont.
