How do you sum up a hotel? It’s a place to sleep, to meet, to dine, to do. A cultural phenomenon. A community hub. A creative retreat. A hotel is the sum of its people – its guests, yes. But most importantly: hotel staff. Top hospitality industry talent is a rare breed, characterised by warmth, thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and compassion.
It takes some serious reading between the lines to find those qualities hidden among an endless stack of CVs in your hospitality executive search. Which is why a traditional hospitality recruitment agency just can’t hack it. When it comes to hotel executive recruitment, you need someone who’ll go the extra mile to find the ideal attitude for your hotel brand.
For Lightning, it all started in hotels. It was while working with some of the world’s most well-known brands (as well as some of the industry’s best-kept secrets) that we fell in love with the hospitality industry. So we understand how important it is to find the top hotel hires for your intricate, well-oiled machine.
It goes without saying we’ve got the hospitality industry’s top talent on speed dial. But more importantly, it's what we do with those contacts. We don’t just fill roles for hotel jobs: we consciously connect humans with businesses to help both thrive.
We meet every candidate before you ever hear about them, so if we recommend someone you can be sure we’ve spotted something special. Plus, we offer end-to-end advice on how to refine your recruitment process and build your employer brand, so you consistently attract the top talent for your hotel management recruitment.
“If you are looking for talent in the luxury travel sector then Lightning is the perfect platform for you.
