By Sarah Harkins
Sources of careers information in the hospitality and event management industry...
A website is a place on the world wide web that contains a series of web pages that may include information on a person, an organisation, general facts, and for this use, job hunting!
The internet is now one of the most popular routes for job hunting.

A particular website that is specific for job hunting is fish4jobs.com
fish4jobs is a site that allows you to job search by typing key words into a search engine, e.g Retail assistant, the site then displays any related jobs for the user.
fish4jobs also includes hyperlinks for other informational pages, such as:
Another helpful website for job hunting in Caterer.com
Caterer.com is a little different to fish4jobs as it specific to jobs within the hospitality industry...
...However Caterer.com has feature hyperlinks that allows you to do more than job search, for example:
Local and national newspapers can be used to find and require information on job searches. To find a job within your surroundings you could look in your local newspaper. If you required a wider scale further away within the country, you would use a national website.
Head Hunter
An agency is a company that help people to find a particular job when an organisation needs them.
CIP recruitment is an agency that specialises in bespoke recruitment for solutions for the manufacturing and the contract catering industry. They provide both permanent and temporary jobs.
reed.co.uk is another agency and is one of the biggest in the UK, due to working with large companies such as compass, coral and 3 network
Progression within a current job (Internal)
Internal employment occurs when a vacancy is advertised internally to give only current employees a chance for either progression, more/less hours, etc.
An example of a company that recruits internally is...
St Monica Trust is a care home that specialises in nursing, respite and dementia care.
The jobs involved in St Monica Trust include:
Catering, and more
I started in this company as a caterer on bank (called in to work when needed)...
...However, after my first year of employment i had showed a great interest in the job and company, therefore my manager approached me to offer a permanent weekend job before externally advertising it, as another employee was leaving.
A Head Hunter is an employee part of an executive recruitment agency that researches qualified personnel throughout their work life.

They can then locate a suitable candidate for a specific job requirement, within a short amount of time.
What do Head Hunters look for?
Hardworking employees
Determination for a better career and a better life
An employee who wants to challenge themselves
Easy to work with
Employment stability
