WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Over the past five years I have worked closely with Tracey and her team at Hot Cats Recruitment, and they have never faltered to offer me the support I have needed. 

 

I would happily recommend, and have done on many occasions, Hot Cats to other hospitality organisations. 

 

We are a bespoke business and Tracey and her team know what skills and attributes we look for in the chefs, so I always know that they’ll send me someone capable of the tasks needed. 

 

The prompt manner in which they approach bookings takes a lot of stress out of filling shifts. I love their clear and honest approach to communication and look forward to continuing to working with Hot Cats in the future."

— Crystal Parker, Group Kitchen Process Manager, Gloucester Services
