Welcome to our hospitality recruitment newsletter for August!

August has been an exceptionally busy month and demand is high for our hospitality trained temps who assist clients in the kitchen and front of house.

Our hospitality recruitment teams are working hard to support our new and existing clients and we are always looking for experienced Chefs, Receptionists and F&B staff to join our band of merry men! We run a generous Recommend a Friend scheme, giving Amazon vouchers to anyone making a recommendation that results in a placement.  If you know someone who would like flexible working and generous hourly rates, with a reputable hospitality recruitment agency, please get in touch!  hello@platinum-hospitality.co.uk 


We really appreciate it when our clients and candidates take the time to review our service and we have been genuinely delighted with some of the reviews we have received this month

We would like to thank all our amazing Clients and the fantastic Hospitality professionals who have taken the time to write reviews #LovePlatinum 

Platinum Meets

This August we also spoke to James Golding Chef Director of the Pig.  He’s busy with Summer Festivals so we were grateful that he took the time to talk to us. Check out the interview here

Giving Back
Our charity this month was The Pembroke Unit Fund at Salisbury Hospital and was chosen by Haidee.  The Pembroke Unit looks after people suffering from cancer and blood diseases and the fund provides special ‘extras’ to make the experience better for patients. The staff at the Pembroke Unit looked after Haidee’s Nan so this was a charity that is very close to her heart.

Employee of the Month
Each month we look to celebrate someone within the Platinum family who has excelled in their role, this is open to anyone within the team from Junior to Senior top hospitality Recruiters, Management, Admin or Accounts.


This month’s winner is our fun loving Accounts Manager, Andy Franks!  Andy has won the award this month because he is proactive when it comes to resolving issues and has been helpful and approachable as we have implemented new pensions legislation. Even with a heavy workload, he is happy to help and that is why he is our August Employee of the Month.  Well done Andy!
