HospoHub launches

If the search for jobs ever feels just as sterile as a visit to the dentist, HospoHub, Australia's first jobs website catering exclusively to hospitality, recently launched to link up employers and hospitality workers in a warmer, more personable environment.

With decades of combined experience working in restaurants, bars and cafés, and for catering companies across the world, co-founders Alana Scarce and Shelley L'Green aim to align the search for hospitality jobs with the atmosphere of the industry itself, through beautiful imagery, design and tone. "So many job boards are sterile, but hospitality is about warmth, personality and service," Scarce says. "We wanted to bring that online."

HospoHub focuses on one industry to quickly match cafés, bars or restaurants with the best suited barista, bartender or chef. HospoHub is similar to existing hospitality recruitment services, although Scarce says many smaller local businesses can't afford to advertise on websites like Seek, let alone use a recruitment agency. "They'd have to put a sign on the window and wait for weeks to fill a position - we're the update from that," she says. "We allow businesses to post listings for positions or last-minute shifts at a fraction of the cost." It's early days, but Scarce promises a slew of reputable names are in the works. For now, early adopters include George Calombaris, who's using HospoHub to source managers, bar staff and wait-staff for his new Melbourne venture, the Hellenic Hotel in Williamstown.

HospoHub aims to be a home for hospitality in Australia, a place where you can refer friends to jobs, or read blogs from industry professionals on how to pair wines with a meal or ace a job trial. Essentially, HospoHub wants to make finding and filling a job easier than before. "We want to make [job searching] more interactive," says Scarce. "We want HospoHub to be a place people come back to."
