- Edward Herring, Managing Director, Washingborough Hall Hotel
I have recently used Richard Morris of Hospitality Staffing UK to recruit a new Head Chef for our hotel. I found Richard’s attitude and professionalism to be first rate and he would be my very first port of call for any other high level recruitment tasks. At no stage did we ever feel out of touch with his efforts for us nor was he ever misleading in anything he said. A straight talking Yorkshireman who delivered 100% on the task set.

I am an ambitious individual and was looking to move forward in my career when, I was approached by Helen regarding a new position. She arranged an interview and later a work trial. During the recruitment process I had to go abroad urgently for personal reasons, but while I was away Helen kept in touch with my new employer and kept them in the loop.
I would recommend Hospitality Staffing UK to anybody in the market for a new position in the within the business.

- Barry Flint, General Manager, Humber Royal Hotel
In all my career of using recruitment agencies I have found Richard and Helen to be the most hard working and conscientious when it comes to finding the right candidate for the role that I need to fill. They go out of their way and much further than the extra mile to get me what I need for the role I need to fill. As we all know finding the right candidate is essential and the work that they do in advance of sending them to interview is fantastic. They take out some of the hard work and leave us with the genuine candidates that are needed. Thank you Helen and Richard for taking out some of the stress of the recruitment process. You came highly recommended and I would indeed pass that on to anyone else.

I found Hospitality Staffing extremely professional, very friendly and patient. They met me in person which I was really impressed with, and matched me up to the ideal role. 15 months on and I am still really enjoying it. They seem to have a strong relationship with their candidates and you can tell they care about their work and the service they provide. I hope to stay in partnership with them so I can achieve my career goal of becoming a General Manager!

- Naveed Choudry, Owner, Lazaat Hotel
I have used Hospitality Staffing UK on a few occasions to help with my recruitment. They are a local company who have some good contacts within the Industry. They have helped me fill a couple of different roles, and they give me another option along with advertising the roles myself. They have been established for a number of years and overall provide a good level of service. I have met Richard Morris a number of times and he has visited Lazaat to gain an understanding of my requirements which I was pleased about. I will continue to use them as and when the need arises.

- Neil Doogan, General Manager, Coaching Inn Group
When I was approached by Richard Morris, I already had another offer on the table which I was seriously considering. However he told me that he had a role that was just what I had been looking for, so I agreed to look at it and go for interview. I am now very glad that I did and Richard persuaded me to apply. I felt that this position really did match my criteria better than the other.
Richard was very supportive throughout the entire process, organising the interviews and keeping me in the loop as to what was going on. I found him and his staff very friendly, professional and efficient throughout the whole recruitment, even down to the “Good Luck” card they sent.

- Ashley Lidgard, MD, Oakridge Hotels
I have used Hospitality Staffing UK a number of times to recruit key people for my hotel group. I have always found them a professional company to deal with who get results and can find me a high calibre of candidates. I used Hospitality Staffing UK in 2007 when I was looking to recruit a General Manager for one of my hotels and they matched the job spec I gave them with a suitable candidate. I am happy to say he still works for the company and has proved to be a good appointment. I have met Richard a number of times and he has stayed in my hotels to gain a better understanding of the business. I am happy to use Hospitality Staffing UK again in the future if I have the need.”

- Kate Firth, General Manager, Ye Old Bell Hotel
Hospitality Staffing UK have assisted me in recruiting three positions for Ye Olde Bell Hotel and Restaurant.
Richard and Helen listened to my brief very carefully and took the time to understand the type of candidates I was looking for. Throughout the process they were patient (I don’t like to rush decisions!!), very helpful and accommodating.
They had obviously taken great care in selecting the candidates that they put forward, they were all of excellent calibre.
The follow up service was impressive too with regular contact checking on progress of my new team members.
I’m delighted to say all three new recruits are all still working in my business and have had a positive impact.
I would not hesitate in recommending Hospitality Staffing UK, they delivered what they promised.

- Simon Daniel, General Manager, Best Western Cwrt Bleddyn Hotel, Usk
I cannot recommend Hospitality Staffing UK highly enough. In particular, Richard Morris. From our first conversation, he was professional, informative and detailed.
He spoke to me when I was able to speak to him. Not just office hours. In fact, he called me at home on a Sunday evening to run through details for my interview with the client first thing Monday morning. I felt that he gave far more support than any other agency I have used in 25 years. I don’t think I have ever been better prepared for any interview.
His feedback was direct, honest and worthwhile. He has even spoken to me a number of times since I started my position, which is something that in my experience other companies don’t do once they have had their commission.
I would have no hesitation in contacting HUSK to help with my future recruitment needs or to future my own career. Thanks for everything Richard!

- Ross Fergusson, General Manager, Kew Green Hotels
I was very pleased to be with Richard and his team. Throughout the entire interview process that can be very stressful, I was encouraged, kept informed and told I was the right candidate which gives you confidence. You do perhaps doubt yourself a little but Richard made sure I knew that I had all the credentials required for the role I now have. I don't think a recruitment agencies job is to do this in fact for me it goes above the call of duty. I have a lot to thank Richard and his team for, I have a job I love, a boss I really respect, a company going places, a team who are great and ultimately I am happier at home (let me tell you in hotels, home life can suffer). I would also say something else, you're not buying Hospitality staffing (don't get me wrong there a good company), your buying Richard who I just cannot thank enough.

- Peter Nye, Cluster General Manager, Jupiter Hotels
I’ve had the pleasure with working with Richard and his team on a number of roles we have recruited for in a variety of our hotels, with roles ranging from Junior positions to Operations Manager’s and General Manager’s. Richard has successfully placed three of our Operations Manager’s in Yorkshire, to which we are really pleased with the performance.
I have found Richard really easy to work with, with really strong knowledge of the challenges that we face in Hospitality in the UK. Richard really spends time understanding the detail behind the requirement for the business, therefore when he is placing candidates for interview we have a belief that they are going to be really strong candidates.
I’ve always found him fair, and would have no issue in endorsing and recommending Hospitality Staffing to anyone in the sector.

- Charne Brester, Wedding & Events Sales Exec, Bartle Hall Hotel
I was covering for maternity leave and required a new job as my contract was coming to an end. Having uploaded my CV on to Caterer.com I was very pleased when I received a call from Helen at Hospitality Staffing UK. She was very helpful and professional from the start. She told me they had a job I might be interested in, sent a full job description and later arranged an interview. Helen also suggested that I should call at the Hotel before the interview to have a look around and get a feel for how things were run which was a very helpful idea.
Richard and Helen were great at keeping me well informed at all stages of the application process. They gave me all the tools required to successfully come through the interview stages. I was delighted that they then contacted me to find out how the interview had gone and gave me feedback on what the client had thought of me. This was vital information when I returned for the 2nd interview. Hospitality Staffing UK agreed the deal for me and kept in touch once I had started to offer me ongoing support.
I would not hesitate in recommending Hospitality Staffing UK to anybody looking for a management role in the hospitality industry. They will find Helen & Richard both professional and understanding throughout the entire recruitment process.

- Laura Moore, Sales Manager, Ramada Hotel Coventry
I was not even looking for a job when I got approached by Helen on Linked In, most of the time I just delete as you get bombarded with job vacancies however Helen’s message stood out. From the initial message she seemed friendly, informative about the role and was particularly interested in finding the right job for my skills. From the initial interview I had regular communication with Helen and her colleague to prop for the interview, follow up after, this could have been a very drawn out recruitment process however they made much easier due to their regular communication over the Christmas period. I finally got the job and the service did not stop there with phone calls to see how I was getting on and even a congratulations card in the post. I have been in this position now for 5 months and it was a great move for me, I could not have asked for more from hospitality staffing and would definitely recommend.

- Abby Rischer, Deputy General Manager, Holiday Inn Nottingham
I highly recommend the professional and efficient services of Hospitality Staffing UK. Richard and Helen are supportive and involved right from their first point of contact, preparing me with all information needed at each stage of my interview process, they are always on hand to answer concerns or questions. They are never more than a phone call away, and even once the good news has been received they are still on hand to offer support in those vital first weeks. Thank you for all your support.

- Paul Hannon, Food & Beverage Manager, Cottingham Parks Golf Club
I have known Richard & Helen for many years and we have helped each other out during that time, so when he called me and told me he had a job that would really suit me I had to listen.
They gave me a full break down of the job and although I had not been looking for a move I had to admit it did seem to be a good match for the way I wanted to progress . Of course they arranged the interviews and went through prep with me and we spoke to see how I had got on and gave me feedback from the interviewer.
I am enjoying the job role and the new challenge but when I need to take my career forward to the next step Richard & HSUK will be my first port of call.
As I have already said I have dealt with Richard and his company for several years and I have always found them to be reliable, honest and professional in everything that they do, and have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody looking for a role in Hospitality management.

- Malwina Joruc, Deputy General Manager, Atlas Hotels
I was approached by Hospitality Staffing UK with regards to a couple of management roles in the midlands area. I found them very easy to deal with and they matched up my experience and skills to the right kind of jobs that I was looking for. I was impressed with the type of clients they are recruiting for which included reputable branded hotels as my background was with Hilton. I had several interviews and was successful and happy to accept my current role with Holiday Inn Express @ Birmingham NEC. It is a nice challenge for me and I am working with the IHG brand. Hospitality Staffing UK supported me through my interview process with preparation and made me feel confident and excited about the opportunities. They have kept in touch with me since I have started to offer help and to see how I am getting on. I felt confident that they would find me the right job role and would use their services again in the future.

I have been working with Richard and the team for around 7 years. They are professional, friendly and make a real effort to understand your business. They do a great job of customer relationship management as well, keeping in contact and proactively building a trustworthy partnership for the long term that will take the hassle out of the recruitment process. They always come up with quality candidates and despite their location in Hull always manage to deliver suitable applicants from the local area.

- Tom Hindle, General Manager, Best Western North Shore Hotel, Skegness
Richard is always professional, friendly and helpful. When I applied to the advertisement for my present role, he took me through the recruitment process smoothly and easily. He was very thorough with his prep and information prior to my interview to ensure I was fully briefed on the role, the hotel and what his client was looking for. I felt very prepared and confident when my interview came around. Richard checked before the interviews to see if I needed any further help or guidance and then successfully negotiated a deal on my behalf.
Hospitality Staffing UK are a very efficient and professional outfit, and friendly they even sent me a Good Luck in your New Job card which I thought was a really nice touch!
I have since contacted them to ask for their help in assisting me with recruitment. I would have complete trust in working with them in the future, an excellent recruitment agent.

Richard Morris called me up to ask if I would be interested in a new role that he had just got on his books. He explain that it would be a step up for me and he thought it would be a great opportunity. I already knew Richard and was encouraged by the fact he was aware that I was ready to move forward.
He organised the interviews and helped with my preparation, and so far it has been a great move. He has also been to see me in my new job to check all is going well, which I thought was “going the extra mile.”
I would recommend Richard and his company to anybody looking for a management job in hospitality.

- Eszter Saxton, General Manager, CGC Events
Richard Morris approached me to enquiry if I was interested in a role that he was looking to fill. I was not seeking new employment at the time and was a little reluctant to look at this position. Richard told me he had seen my profile on Linked-in and thought that I would perfect for the role. Both he and Helen (his colleague) helped me throughout the interview and change process and kept me informed with feedback from the interviews, and what the employer had said about me. Since I started my new job Richard has been to visit me to see if I have settle and if I am enjoying the role.
I would highly recommend Hospitality Staffing UK to anybody looking for a new job in Hospitality. They were professional and friendly and made my job change go smoothly.

- Matthew Booth, Deputy General Manager, White Hart, Lincoln
When I came to the UK from my native Australia, I realised that although I had many years of experience in the hospitality industry it is not always easy to get a role here without experience in the UK. I applied for a position on the internet and was contacted by Hospitality Staffing UK.
Helen was personable and very professional from day one. She provided a full job spec and when I said I was interested, arranged the interviews, and did everything she could to make the process easy. The one thing that I noticed was how Helen kept me up to date with what was happening. She called after the interview to see how I thought it had gone and also gave me feedback from their client.
Richard & Helen are very friendly and helpful at all times but still manage to maintain a level of professionalism. I highly recommend Hospitality Staffing UK to anyone looking for a new role in the hospitality industry.

- Erran Buckingham – Head Chef - Brackenborough Hotel
When I was approached by Richard at Hospitality Staffing UK I felt reasonably happy in my present role. However when he explained what a golden opportunity he was trying to fill I decided to have a look at the job. The position boded well with my passion for food and enthusiasm to produce the best.
Richard guided me through the recruitment procedure with the ease and confidence of a true professional, and at the end I had a job that I love. He matched my skills and personality to his client and we are a great match.
I would recommend Hospitality Staffing UK to anyone looking for a senior role in a professional kitchen.
