Recruitment in the hotel, catering and tourism industries is the quintessence of AJ Conseil Recrutement & RH, founded by Alain Jacob in 1993.

The hotel industry, catering and leisure activities are amongst the powerhouses of the world economy.

However, it is no secret that the service professions in general and in particular those in the hotel, catering and tourism industries are in difficulty. The lack of staff, in particular qualified executives, is a problem for some of you.

With its 6 experienced employees with a double sectoral and HR competence, our firm has developed an innovative recruitment method combining a performing application management tool (CRM) and a process certified by Syntec Recrutement.

As experts for the employment of executives in the hotel, luxury, retail, catering and tourism industries, we have accompanied more than 700 companies in 24 years, in France and abroad, in respect of all the issues linked to the optimisation of management.

At the head of a pool including 50,000 active candidates (general managers of hotels, palaces, caterers, chefs …) we select and hunt the most talented managers throughout the world to help you develop your company.
