You’ll save time
One of the best things about enlisting the help of a hospitality staffing agency is that you have a dedicated recruitment professional keeping you in mind for roles! At Tiger, your file is available for all of our consultants to access. This means that if you tell one consultant you are open to working front of house in a restaurant across the Christmas party season, any jobs of that specification that come into the agency can be run past you.
You can find a role quickly
In the temp world, it’s common for an establishment to need temps with very little notice due to unforeseen circumstances, like staff absences. In hospitality, this can also happen due to unexpected fluctuations in business activity across the holiday period. As a result, these jobs aren’t often advertised online as they need to be filled quickly. In this situation, registering with a fantastic agency is to your advantage, as employers will ring recruiters with these roles. Your consultant can then call you to see if you’re available for the one-off event. As a result, we can get you into work within days of you coming in to register with us.
You will have support throughout the process
An agency can provide you with support to help give you the best chance of being a successful temp, through CV support from your consultant to providing education and training. At Tiger, we have both hospitality and temporary specific insights that provide tips and tricks to help you in the workplace.
