At Prime Agency Recruitment, we’re committed to doing everything we can to make your life easier and source the ideal first-class team members for your business.

That’s why, after talking to a broad cross-section of our clients and finding out what their biggest pain point is, we’ve just launched our Prime CV Service.

What’s our client’s biggest pain point? See if this rings any bells for you.

“Job applications are coming in at an unmanageable level…”

With the enormous amount of unemployment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact the lockdowns have had – and are continuing to have – on all areas of the hospitality industry, it’s not surprising that more people are applying for jobs than ever before.

In many ways, that’s a great thing, because it means you’ll have a wider choice of candidates who will be perfectly suited for the vacancies you want to fill.

But the downside is, this upsurge of applications makes immense demands on your time. You’ve already got enough pressures to deal with, and spending long hours sifting through piles of applications doesn’t just drain your valuable time and resources, it also makes it much likelier that you’ll miss finding the right candidate. After all, discovering the right candidate often relies on looking beneath the surface at the finer details. That’s always a difficult task, and it’s been made considerably more difficult by the current environment.

“…and not only is the amount of applications unmanageable, a lot of them don’t even match our requirements.

There’s an excellent reason for that too.

Many people are, quite understandably, so desperate to find work that a lot of them are applying for roles that don’t suit their skills or experience, and sometimes aren’t even in a location they’re prepared to travel to (!) Also, ease of technology means that more and more people are sending a ‘one size fits all’ CV to multiple jobs, so working through the ‘time wasters’ to find the legitimate applications can be a frustrating, time-intensive process.

Our new Prime CV Service guarantees you’ll avoid all those problems, leaving you free to focus on your other priorities.

Here’s how it works:

For a small, fixed fee, we will:

Place your ad on one of the major branded or unbranded job boards of your choice, i.e. Caterer, TotalJobs, CV-Library.

Receive all the applications on your behalf.

Filter through the CV’s to eliminate unsuitable applications, uncover the ‘hidden treasure’ CV’s it’s easy to overlook that could elevate a seemingly unlikely applicant to a ‘can’t miss’ candidate, and forward only the candidates whose experience, skills and promise most closely match your requirements.

We have more than twenty years’ experience providing premium recruitment and staffing solutions to over three hundred companies within the Hotel, Hospitality, Leisure, and Property Management sectors. When a candidate applies who has the talent, passion and personality to fit seamlessly into your workplace, we’ll definitely find them.

What positions are suitable for our service?

Although non-management roles, volume positions, and roles you are regularly recruiting for (i.e. housekeeping, waiting, reception, back-of-house) are especially ideal, any position is suitable for our Prime CV Service.
