Story of Hospitality Hiring Europe

The acute shortage of hospitality professionals has been a growing problem in recent years, and the COVID-19 pandemic has added to it. In 2020, the hotel operator: Black Label Hospitality started recruiting staff from Southern Europe. This was because the vacancies, spread across four hotels in South Limburg, could not be filled (quickly enough) by Dutch employees. This soon proved to be a huge success as the vacancies were filled within two months by very enthusiastic, motivated and passionate hospitality professionals from Italy, Spain, Greece and Portugal.

In conversation with other entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry, we came to the conclusion that the demand for hospitality professionals is so high that a number of entrepreneurs immediately approached us with the question of how Black Label Hospitality has supplemented its workforce so quickly with Southern European employees and whether we could share with them some ‘tips and tricks’ regarding the recruitment and selection of employees from Southern Europe.

Since we want to protect our mutual love, the hospitality industry, and support fellow hospitality entrepreneurs in solving their staffing problems, the idea of founding Hospitality Hiring Europe was born and so it happened.

Hospitality Hiring Europe is a recruitment agency based in the Netherlands, with our head office in Sittard. At our head office, dedicated professionals work under a board with over 40 years of experience in management positions in the hospitality industry.

Together with a team of recruiters in Southern Europe, we strive to bring ambitious professionals and esteemed clients together to fill their vacancies as efficiently as possible and within two weeks.
