Five Tips To Land Your Next Hospitality Job

Find our top tips on how to land your next hospitality role!

How important is it to work in a hospitality job you love? Well, as a leading hospitality recruitment agency, we think it’s essential! To help you find your dream role, we’ve put together five tips to ensure your next opportunity proves the right one for you!

  1. Research your potential new employer.

Whether you’re applying to work in a branded hospitality operation in London, or an independent café in Manchester, do your research first. A quick search online will reveal information about the company’s values, mission statement and ethics. Ask around to find out about the company culture and employer brand before you make your decision. All of these elements should align with your personal values!

  • Understand the requirements of the position.

Before you apply for a job, make sure you understand what that role will actually entail. Working as front-of-house staff in a high-end hotel may seem glamorous at first glance, but remember that these roles can call for long hours alongside a very particular and strict service. Ask to review the job description, look at the responsibilities of the role and ask yourself honestly, “would I enjoy the work?”

  • Know your career development goals.

It’s a good idea to have an understanding of how you want your career to progress and if those opportunities are likely to arise within the organisation that you are applying to. Indications of progression might include the company size, the hierarchy, their growth plans and how long existing staff have been in their roles. If the company is growing, it may indicate that you can progress with the expansion.

  • Ask questions at the interview.

Once you’ve applied for the role and secured the interview, it’s your opportunity to ask about any specifics that you were unable to find in your initial research. Cover aspects like training and development, opportunities within the company and how they deal with customer service. Remember, the interview isn’t just an opportunity for them to ask you questions! It may also be a good idea to ask your interviewer what they like about working for the company and about their own career journey, as it will give you a good indication of the culture.

  • Reach out to a specialist hospitality recruitment agency.

If you register with a hospitality recruitment agency that specialises in permanent hospitality jobs, your consultant will support you in finding roles that will suit your skills, career aspirations and personality fit whilst also offering invaluable advice. It’s a great way to ensure that you’re interviewing for roles you’re likely to fall in love with on your first day – and never look back!
