Our Vision

Our vision is simple – to make it enjoyable to recruit the right people.

We understand that recruitment isn’t just a tick box exercise and finding the right candidates can be a long and stressful process; but not when you work with Talent Hive. For us, personality, working style and ambition are all important factors that go above and beyond a candidate’s CV. Only by integrating these characteristics into our recruitment process can we correctly judge which applicants fit your business the best.

Many of our clients see us as their long-term recruitment partner. By getting to know their business and the sort of people they like to employ, we are able to hand-pick potential employees based on experience and personality attributes.

Because each Talent Hive consultant has worked within the hospitality and catering sectors, in restaurants, pubs, hotels and more, we have the inside knowledge required to make informed decisions when it comes to your recruitment.

We apply this vision to every job we advertise, whether you’re a long-term client or a first-timer; so why not call us to discuss your vacancy?

The Talent Hive Team

William Gennard


Head honcho and acting enthusiast, Will established Talent Hive at the beginning of 2014 to deliver simple and efficient recruitment services for an industry he knows and loves.

With a decade of cheffing under his belt, Will now applies his working knowledge of world-class kitchens, and the wider hospitality and catering sectors, to match candidates to vacancies throughout the UK.

Adrian Pate


Failing in his attempts to become the next Ryan Giggs, Adrian wisely chose to apply his 15 years hospitality experience to making Premier League-standard recruitment matches instead.

Having climbed the ladder from flipping burgers at McDonalds to operations manager at Q Hotels Group, Adrian has vast inside knowledge of a number of key sectors. Combine that with his passion for exceptional customer service and you can be sure of a first-class recruitment experience.

Tom Billingham


Like many, horse racing and boxing fan Tom’s first taste of the hospitality sector was as a part-time bar tender. His experience also spans four-star banqueting and luxury hotels, as well as being part of the ’Master Innholders Aspiring Leaders Diploma’.

Now, Tom applies this knowledge to hand-selecting candidates for a variety of roles, from sous chef or pastry chef to conference and events manager, financial controller and beyond.
