Experienced duo launch hospitality recruitment agency

Top Table Personnel directors, Edward Danks and Patrick O'Grady

A new hospitality recruitment agency has launched in the West Midlands.

Top Table Personnel offers recruitment in all areas of the hospitality sector, including kitchen and bar staff, chefs, and hotel management. The brand is part of the DMOS People recruitment group based in Shrewsbury.

The business is headed up by Edward Danks and Patrick O’Grady, who have over 30 years of experience in the hospitality sector. The pair met working in a Shrewsbury pub before moving into recruitment.

Danks, said: “We’re here to help the hospitality sector to thrive, following a problematic period with Brexit, the pandemic and now a cost of living crisis.

“We want hospitality businesses to be able to offer a great service, not a rushed, understaffed one. Our mission is to find the right people for every business to help improve staff retention.”

Demand for UK hospitality workers has risen by 46% compared to pre-pandemic levels according to ONS data, something which O’Grady, wants to help tackle. “We want to partner with hospitality businesses across the UK.” he said.

“We are already working alongside Mosaic Club (The Shrewsbury Club), Brunning and Price (The Mytton and Mermaid and The Armoury), Mercure, The Terrace, and Prestige Cleaning here in Shropshire.

“Let us fulfil your staffing needs, so bars, hotels and restaurants can have every success as we head into the busy Christmas period.”
