The Challenge

The Woodsman Restaurant looks to fill various Front-of-House and Chef roles throughout the year; from waiters and waitresses, to mixologists to a breakfast head chef.

Being in Stratford-upon-Avon, they face many challenges when recruiting.  Most namely, the lack of relevant candidates who actively apply for jobs in the area. With such a high density of bars, restaurants, and hotels in this relatively small town, both securing – and retaining – the best talent can often prove very difficult.

The Solution

Working alongside the HODs, CV Locator created a strong set of company values, briefs and candidate profiles for each of their vacancies.

Our team monitored and reached out to passive candidates on a daily-basis, ensuring that all active and passive talent were available to the HODs as soon as we had identified them.

By optimising all the media, the Woodsman’s ‘net’ can now be cast much wider, allowing candidates to be made aware of their vacancies on a much grander scale and, in turn, uncovering the best talent available.

Alongside direct applicants we sourced passive highly relevant candidates and increased candidate sourcing by 100% for certain roles.

The Result

With the recruitment consultants sourcing, The Woodsman Restaurant receives on average 58.8 candidates per vacancy posted, with a hiring success rate of 91%.

On the flip-side, the well mapped-out values and job briefs brings an improved attrition rate. This is due to candidates having a deeper knowledge of the role and company culture in all stages of the candidate journey.
