Recruitment service – client services

We practice a tailored approach to recruitment. Before sending applicants for an interview we first assess our clients. This information assists us in gaining a clear knowledge of individual requirements and allows us to match each organization closely with potential applicants on our current database.

Through a screening process that involves applicant testing, reference checking and a pre selection interview with our qualified industry professionals, we assure ourselves that the applicants clients see are the best fit for the position.

Both our clients and our database of applicants can be assured of our confidentiality when working with your organization. Confidentiality is our key word.

We know that the tourism and hospitality industry is a busy one and our client’s first priority is guest satisfaction. Engaging the right employee to ensure that satisfaction is met and exceeded is an important but time consuming role.

Many of our candidates are returning from our overseas placements and have the benefit of international experience where they will have met the challenges of working in another country and culture. They bring to you a wealth of experience and newly acquired personal and professional development gained within 4/5 star properties abroad. Several of our candidates have undertaken Degree qualifications at the renowned IMI College in Switzerland and are now seeking supervisory and junior management positions here in Canada.

Our candidate base also includes industry professionals looking to move up the career ladder or change location and job seekers who merely seek fresh employment opportunities. Your needs are our primary focus as we match our candidates to your property and position; if we do not have a suitable candidate we will tell you so. Our reputation is built on our professionalism in supplying successful employment opportunities for both employers and job seekers.

The Bottom line?

We know hospitality and tourism and we find people who fit. So why use Tourism Recruitment Solutions? There are really only 2 key points to remember:

  1. We know hospitality - We specialize exclusively in hospitality and tourism, we are seasoned hospitality, tourism and human resource professionals operating on a national and international basis.
  2. There's no risk - There's no obligation or up front fee and we only place candidates who are the right fit to the position and property. Our fees are realistic and negotiable to meet your individual needs.

Tourism Recruitment Solutions are an international and national placement company that seeks to match our candidates with your organisation to ensure the right selection first time.

We undertake the selection process on your behalf and present you with a short list of candidates for interview by telephone and digital presentation. Your new employee arrives to commence employment having undertaken our cultural orientation program that ensures a successful transition to working abroad.

“I know I will always receive a friendly and professional service from TRS and would recommend them to anyone seeking quality candidates. That's what I like about you compared to many agencies, the fact I know you will only send me people who you consider would be good for the position. Some others tend to just send loads of resumes and they don't have appropriate skills at all.“
- Dee Wragg, HR Manager, MacDonald Hotels
