About Us

We're on a Mission

Striving to be the best hospitality recruitment agency in the UK by focusing on our team, clients and candidates

The Evolve Way

Driven

We are driven by our passion for hospitality and our aim is always to provide the highest standards by supplying high quality, trade tested staff to our Clients. We don’t cut corners with regards to candidate or client care and that is reflected in every aspect of the business from onboarding, candidate assessments, compliance, bookings through to payroll and invoicing.

Caring

We pride ourselves on our candidate care programme. We ensure that the candidate experience is a two- way street. Registration and induction is about getting to know the candidate personally, their work experience and their career ambitions within the industry to ensure the best Client fit for them. In addition, we offer all of our candidate’s access to our BenefitHub platform and access to our Employee Assistance programme.

Passionate

We are passionate about what we and our Clients do. The way we work is mutually beneficial and we want to instil the same passion in our candidates whether they have worked with us for years or they are just taking their tentative first steps towards their first shift, we will be there to support them along the way.

Proud

We are proud to work collaboratively with every one of our Clients and candidates. Our candidates are an extension of us and they represent us within the industry and we are proud of each and every one of them. We are proud to support our Clients with their operations which we understand can be challenging at times. We will always do our very best to support and assist candidates and clients alike.
