Project Description

Reducing the cost of recruitment is always a challenge for the Thurlestone Hotel so we are always looking for better ways to recruit, ideally with more control on the choice of staff. We have found to be our first point of contact. As the other methods cost a lot of money.

If we do not find the correct employee in the database, we post a free job advert on  We have job adverts for all job titles already constructed, so when we require an advert, we just change the dates and un-click ‘on hold’.  Below are some bullet points about

  • Have a growing database that is free to view with no contracts
  • Always free to place your adverts and free to search and view candidates’ CVs
  • You own the process from the website, no other costs to hire
  • All CVs are dated and checked to make sure they are clean
  • To save your time, employee’s can only apply once to your company in a 1 month period
  • All employees are vetted automatically by computer. They are required to complete several questions, which takes approximately 20 minutes – Quality not Quantity!

The last person we hired using, we found had also completed the Green Tourism question and she had worked in a hotel previously with the Silver Award for Green Tourism.  Her knowledge of Green Tourism helped to give her the edge over other applicants. So she got the job!
