How It All Started

Jason launched into the recruitment industry in 1999 with Hospitality Placements, specialising in sourcing and placing talent in the hospitality industry. He then recognised the demand for the best teachers in the education industry and the recruitment brand grew to incorporate EduPlacements.

In 1999, Jason realised the need in the market-place for a hospitality recruitment agency with relevant trade experience, who could identify a dynamic synergy between employers and potential employees whilst maintaining a professional and personal service to both clients and candidates alike. With this is mind, Hospitality Placements came into being.
