Recruiter – Hospo Manager Background, Days Mon-Fri, Learn A New Industry

Job Type





  • Stable and industry-leading specialist
  • A business that values your input and ideas
  • Highly regarded in the industry

The Company

Placed Recruitment is an industry leader because every member of the team has decades of experience working 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 we are grateful to work in a business where we can recruit, assist, consult, and help shape the next industry leaders.

Placed is 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. In this role, you will receive the training necessary to manage the entire recruitment process from start to finish, 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. Throughout our vast training process and mentorship, you will develop a brand new and strong set of skills. These include learning a new business, developing account management ability, building client relationship, and learning 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, (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 one-on-one training. There are also online training programs so growth and development are a big part of what is on offer to the successful candidate. We talk restaurants food and reviews. We laugh a lot too! 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 businesses succeed.

This is a people-facing role, so you need to be confident on the phone, in person meeting clients, and conducting interviews. We will train you on all of this, but the ability to connect and build relationships is hugely important. We are looking for someone who is self-motivated and has a history of exceeding, excelling and self-development.

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. Additionally, the opportunity for a lifestyle change — our hours being Monday to Friday in an office in Pyrmont.
