Why a headhunter?

A headhunter specialising in the catering, hotel and tourism industries, also referred to as executive search, is a recruitment firm which applies the so-called direct approach method to find the talent corresponding to the expectations of its customer.

The direct approach is the best solution for sectors with recruitment difficulties like the hotel, luxury, catering or tourism industries, where the expert profiles (chef, central kitchen manager, hotel general manager, chef pâtissier, F&B manager…) are rather rare and often highly sought after.

The direct approach allows an identification of the “best candidates” in a specific industry who are addressed proactively because they are candidates who normally are not aware of the market trends and do not respond to traditional job postings.

AJ Conseil Recrutement & RH conducts a headhunting mission as follows:

Meeting with the recruiter on site to capture the values and the culture of the company

Detection and evaluation of the potential profile regardless of a location in France or abroad

Drafting of a persuasive argumentation together with the customer to convince the candidate

Definition of a precise approach scenario in order to guarantee the highest possible discretion towards both the customers and the contacted candidates
