Our Story

Our journey began back in 2013, with just one recruiter at the helm. Driven by a profound passion for the hospitality industry and underpinned by strong family values, we ventured on to build on our ethos. Passion and family values played a crucial role in the establishment of 26 Recruitment. These core principles guided the company's early operations and continue to be the driving force behind its success. The emphasis on personalised service and genuine care for clients and candidates set our agency apart from our competitors. Over the years, we’ve been able to expand on our reach across the UK, establishing and developing strong relationships and connections in major cities and regions. With dedicated teams for the North and South we can meet the diverse needs of our clients and candidates nationwide. With recruitment consultants focused on their own regions they’re able to develop a deep understanding of the local markets that they serve, enabling us to build robust networks and strong partnerships with top hospitality and catering establishments across the country. This strategic growth has allowed us to provide unparalleled service and support, connecting the best talent with leading employers in every corner of the UK. Our story is one of growth, passion, and an unwavering commitment to the hospitality industry. By focusing on excellence and building strong relationships, 26 Recruitment has established itself as a trusted expert in hospitality and catering recruitment.
