We are increasingly seeing companies in the hospitality industry adopt the internet as their key source of recruitment

A survey of hospitality HR and recruitment managers by specialist jobs website Caterer.com reveals that more than half (53%) reckon the internet is the most effective source of recruitment.

Within the internet, the single-most effective method of filling vacancies emerged as specialist job boards such as Caterer.com (29%), followed by employer websites (14%). Other recruitment methods such as word of mouth (13%) and specialist recruitment consultants (10%), were seen as more useful than print advertising and general websites (both 9%).

These findings are in line with a marked increase in job-seeker traffic on Caterer.com. The hospitality CV database has grown by 44% in last 12 months, with more than 5,000 new CVs uploaded every month. Similarly, visits to the site in the six months to June are up 6% on the same period last year.

"We are increasingly seeing companies in the hospitality industry adopt the internet as their key source of recruitment. Our research tells us that recruiters not only value the quality of candidates they can access on the internet, but they are able to realise substantial cost-savings when compared to traditional recruitment means such as print advertising," said marketing manager Jonathan Hedger.

Caterer.com's recent White Paper "Hiring Trends in the Hospitality Industry: The Recruitment Consultants Guide" highlights key recruitment trends as well as valuable recommendations for hospitality recruitment consultants. It can be downloaded at www.whitepaper.caterer.com.
