The latest news and advice from our recruitment experts.
When planning Hospo Recruit, part of Hospitality NZ, QJumpers and Hospitality NZ set about creating different recruitment service packages to suit those within the hospitality industry. We know that there are challenges around being seen and attracting the right calibre of candidates, finding skilled and experienced staff to fill vacant positions. You just don't have the time to do it and frankly can't afford the cost of recruitment agencies. So this is why we created a series of recruitment packages to suit any hospitality need - making the job of finding and placing someone into a role faster, easier and without all the expense.
To recruit the right people, you have to be seen in the right places. That’s what’s so simple about our Starter Package. The vacant position is conveniently loaded onto both Hospitality NZ’s and the QJumpers job board, with the ease of adding Seek or Trade Me if you deem fit. The Hospitality NZ job board gives you exposure to your specific niche market with alternative job boards giving you extra coverage. You also get to use the time saving recruitment software developed by QJumpers to communicate with applicants and manage the role with ease.
If you’re the type of company that wants to cast the net a little wider then perhaps our next package is for you: the Finder Package. You get all of the above, we'll write the job advertisement for you and you'll get additional advertising on Seek, TradeMeJobs and the Work and Income job boards. But wait, there's more.... a very handy little extra – a LMT. The LMT is a Labour Market Test report that is used for immigration purposes. If you cannot find a New Zealander who meets the job requirements, you can take the LMT report to Immigration NZ as proof that you have tried your best. The report has been developed in consultation with the Ministry of Social Development and Immigration NZ.
Tempted but still want to go just that little bit further? The Recruiter package is proving to be a real favourite amongst hospitality recruiters, because it takes care of everything. Not only do you receive both the Starter and Finder package, you’ll also have your own Hospo Recruitment consultant who will telephone screen and shortlist potential candidates, arrange interviews, reference check and criminal history check.
All Hospo Recruit packages get access to the exlcusive Hospitality NZ talent pool. At the time of writing this article, there are over 4,000 hospitality candidates of various skills and experiences waiting for you to contact them.
