Hotelstaff agents needed...

Hotelstaff is currently looking for hardworking, admin orientated partners in the KZN and Cape region.

Kzn needs someone urgently with a small but busy client base to work with. The Cape has a small database but needs sales work. A deposit of 3 months fees will be required. If you are seeking employment in the industry, live in KZN or in the Cape (North, South or West). Become a recruitment consultant for Hotelstaff - Contact Shirley on 0822917801

Thank you!!

all for the amazing support during our "special" we managed to find jobs for a record number of candidates. We will be looking at new innovative ways of doing something similar again.

Fixed Term Contracts

We understand the economy is very tight at the moment, but we are slightly alarmed at the number of clients who seek candidates, go through a whole process of recruitment and then the client offers a fixed term contract, having never mentioned this previously.

Fixed term contracts are NOT probationary tools!

To stem this we are thinking of invoicing a full years' fee further to the probationary fee. Technically you are recruiting for a new fulltime job...

The other thing is that good solid candidates won't leave good positions for a fixed term contract!! ( even with the vague possibility of a job turning permanent ) so you are left with the pool of currently unemployed people to select from... you limit yourself from finding the best possible person for the job.

A properly written probationary clause in your letter of offer, followed by proper management of the candidate's first few months is a perfectly acceptable way to ensure you have made the right selection.

When a fixed term contract is over and you haven't properly terminated the candidate (and by the way its not their duty to remind you the end is nigh) they become employees by default and subject to the full regulations of the basic conditions of employment and you will get a full invoice from any agency concerned.

If paying the full fee is an issue speak to us about spreading the cost. We would rather help you find the best calibre staff and come to financial arrangements than struggle and make no fee !
