Hospitality, Travel & Leisure
We know how hiring decisions are made at leading travel firms, hotels, restaurant chains, heritage and visitor attractions, and online gaming companies. We have insider knowledge of recruitment practices and constantly keep pace with this fast-moving sector.
In a world that is facing unprecedented challenges, the hospitality, travel and leisure sector has shown itself to be both resilient and creative. It is characterised by commercial agility, imagination and forward thinking as it embraces new opportunities, modifying its operations to meet the demands of a tough environment whilst always insisting on its hallmark of excellence in customer service.
This is a fast-moving sector, ahead of the game in its deployment of digital technologies and constantly expanding to meet consumer demand. Its focus on recreation, entertainment and improving the quality of people’s lives means that it is both responsive to and anticipates lifestyle change as leisure habits evolve across the age range, gender and ethnic groups and modes of social engagement.
People who work in these industries put the customer first. They share the same qualities that characterize the sector: market awareness, strategic thinking, and a commitment to first class standards of service. They are hungry for opportunity both at home and internationally, and appreciate the need to sell themselves to move on in their careers. At City CV, we understand these priorities and how to build them into a perfect CV, LinkedIn profile and interview pitch that immediately convey an individual’s business value and create a powerful personal brand.
