We love it when the stars align and the “perfect” candidate has both the desired skill set and relevant hospitality industry experience. However, often that unicorn doesn’t exist or meet your expectations. Expanding your recruitment search strategy to a wider talent pool beyond Hospitality, Travel, and Tourism can be suited to numerous skilled roles and should be considered.
The following functions are well-suited to a broad search strategy and the possibility of a candidate with transferable skills from another industry:
- Sales & Account Management
- Human Resources
- Finance & Accounting
- Select Executive & Board Appointments
If the skill set is right and the candidate fit is good for your business culture, values and integrity, you could open the door to a massive pool of talent. The right candidate can quickly learn the idiosyncrasies of our hospitality industry.
Seek advice on the best approach for your candidate sourcing solution, including identifying when a sourcing strategy could expand beyond traditional channels and add maximum value to your recruitment process.
