I’ve been very pleased with Core, your team have responded very professionally and work hard, they understand the urgency of their services and are very proactive.


Founder, hospitality consultancy

Brief, candidates and services have been great, even more positive than my expectations with the candidates I met, great job. Well done Lara.


Iconic hotel brand

I am so happy that I was able to connect with COREcruitment. We work with a lot of external recruiting agencies and I have to say that CORE truly knows how to deliver great talent that matches up very well with our culture and brand which are very crucial for us. They are not pushy and take time to get to know the company and corporate culture. They have great attitudes and really make you feel like they want us to succeed. They check in and help us throughout the entire employee process and onboarding. I would absolutely without any doubt recommend their services to other brands.


Forward-thinking pizza brand

We have been dealing with COREcruitment for a number of years, originally through their UK office, with Sharlene Cross and her team for all our international recruitment. Over the years we have built up a strong, excellent relationship, Sharlene understands our operations, and our international requirements. COREcruitment is our first partner-of-choice when recruiting for all our Latino & Africa operations, in countries such as Panama, Mexico, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Sudan and other countries such as Vietnam, Laos.

Having discussed our requirements with Sharlene & her Team, the selection of candidates COREcruitment offers is beyond reproach. On one occasion we even jokingly accused her of ‘inventing a CV’ for a newly created position we were trying to fill as the first CV she sent was an exact match. We were lucky enough to hire the person and have not been disappointed, the role has grown into the vision we had due to the success of the recruitment & selection process conducted by Sharlene and her Team.

COREcruitment is our partner of choice, we would highly recommend them as a business partner to any company looking for a recruitment agency with a high calibre of candidates. Their services, candidate selection, follow up and attention to detail is beyond reproach.


Senior Operations Manager

International FM services

I can only praise the work of Jennifer on that occasion as she has been faster than your competition in getting Jamie on board. (Jamie has been afterward recommended by 3 other agencies).

After a month working with Jamie, it seems to be the right fit to open a new Tom’s kitchen in Birmingham.


Operations Manager

Award-winning chef's restaurant, deli and bar chain

Over a number of years and across several businesses I have worked with Core on a variety of roles, they have always been very efficient and have listened to my requirements and person specifications and then delivered a range of high quality CV’s with relevant skills and competences to match my requirements. Always great to work with and very focussed on fulfilling my needs.

Head of Hospitality

Stadium & arena group

I would recommend the services of COREcruitment and specifically those of their director Krishnan Doyle.

COREcruitment understand the industry and on a very limited brief from myself researched my business, the market and identified a list of potential candidates for a high profile position for my business.

From that shortlist, there was one 'standout' candidate they recommended. The only candidate I interviewed for a pivotal role in my business. Ultimately saving me time and resource.

COREcruitment seem to understand the hospitality industry and working with entrepreneurs well. They were clear with communication - often out of hours to work around me and flexible with the package they offered.
