The hospitality industry has a shortage of skilled workers, everyone knows that. There are a many reasons for this, amongst some are, High costs of education, the lack of in-house training and courses, the life style that comes with it, the long hours compared to the salary and the high turn over of staff within the industry, and though there are many jobs available it's not a straight forward process in finding one.

So what does one do, especially when his been in the industry for 13 years as a chef? Start a recruitment agency and join the other thousands of agencies and head hunters fighting for staff out there in hopes to sell them to hotels and restaurants for the very profitable commission? NO! I'm not into human trafficking!


The problems that needed to be tackled

The problems that needed to be solved is balance, some regions have a lack of skilled staff and others have a lack of jobs. If I'm looking for a job, first I must find a specific agency with potential jobs in the area I want what will then find me a job, doesn't make sense to me, so both employees and employers need to find each other and communicate directly with each other. Go to a different region or country with a job already lined up, and of course be free for workers to find jobs.

Time to reinvent the sector!

The solution has to obviously not join the problem nor fight the existing reality. To change something, I had to build a new model that makes the old one obsolete. Obstructive in a way to dominate the sector and modernise the hospitality recruitment sector.
