Mash’d Hospitality Recruiters – Accessing and Placing The Top 15% of UK Hospitality Talent

Mash’d is the UK’s premier hospitality recruiter specialising specifically in serving all small to mid-sized hospitality operators trading from £500k PA – £50m PA.

Forget the norm

Here at Mash’d we put our heart and soul into the service we offer. Other recruiters take a short brief, posting jobs on sites in the hope of spotting a CV that loosely fits that brief. We’re different.

The days of simply competing on job boards against thousands of other roles and employers are dead. The next battle ground for netting talent is social media. A total minefield, right? Wrong. At Mash’d we can tap into passive candidate markets and offer a truly personal service, spotting genuine talent and the best opportunities. We understand things from both the candidate’s and client’s perspective. We’re all ex-industry from the premium branded sector, including GMs, Head Chefs and Area Managers. After being on the receiving end of some pretty poor service from agents over the years ourselves, we believe wholeheartedly there is a better way. We don’t just look at CVs; we look at the whole person.

In short, if we put a candidate forward to you, it’s because we’d hire them ourselves.

Need more candidates with passion and drive?

  • Are you having trouble finding high-quality passive candidates?
  • Is it taking too long to fill critical roles?
  • Are you relying on Job Ads and InMails that don’t get results?
  • Lack of Expertise in the hospitality recruitment sector meaning you can’t attract and engage the best talent for your business?

Is your career stuck in a big company rut?

  • Growing tired of big company politics and job uncertainty?
  • You want the term “my guests” to actually mean something?
  • You want to explore your options but don’t want to be contacted by lots of recruiters giving you the hard sell?
  • Want greater reward and recognition?
  • Being presented the wrong opportunities?

Steve and his team have some fantastic contacts across the sector that they have grown over many years and also work across social media to network candidates you just cannot find through advertising. Highly recommended for a professional but personal service.
