KnowHow Recruitment – About Us 

KnowHow Recruitment started out specialised in retail recruitment helping retailers recruit the right people for their store management and head office vacancies. Underpinned by our aim – “to provide the best service” we have over the last 10 years grown and changed to become an established firm within retail recruitment. This growth has seen KnowHow Recruitment diversify our offering and include hospitality recruitment to our service offering which help business in the hospitality, leisure and catering sectors recruit staff from Restaurant Managers to Executive Head Chefs.

Recruitment isn’t easy, but we love it!

We aim to understand your brand position, culture, ethos and what type of person would fit within your organisation so the person we provide you with is the perfect match for your criteria.

Retail Recruitment & Hospitality Recruitment Experts

Our team of experienced and dedicated recruiters are split based on their skills and strengths between our retail recruitment and hospitality recruitment teams. Each day our teams are networking, head hunting and searching through 1000’s of candidates to match up the right people for the right jobs. We leave nothing to chance and strive to make sure our candidates and clients are matched correctly so both have a successful future together.

We have been there and got the tee-shirt

One of our strengths as retail and hospitality recruiters is that we understand the challenges you face as we have worked on the shop floor, prepared for the Boxing Day sale, served in 5* hotels or performed support roles in head office. We have been there and got the Tee-shirt which is why we are in the best position to help you find your next career or next team member.

Despite our changes and growth we still remain true to our core aim “to provide the best service” and to maintain our belief and practice in our values:
