about

Silvert Service was established in 2009 to provide a bespoke hospitality recruitment service by John Silvert, who spent 18 years working within the industry, and 4 years working specifically within hospitality recruitment. He has worked for privately owned boutique hotels, The Exclusive Hotel Group, The N.E.C. Group, Sodexo Prestige and The Lindley Group.

John thought it best practice to put his own name to the company, to show the personal and dedicated approach that the hospitality industry requires and deserves. Silvert Service Ltd is totally dedicated to providing quality recruitment solutions for clients exclusively within the hospitality industry. John is truly passionate about the hospitality industry, and totally focused with assisting clients who have specific needs in their operations, candidates who want career progression or career advice, and those who seek long term careers in this industry. We specialise in providing bespoke recruitment for Niche Hospitality Operations and are proud to support many operations that are members of Relais & Chateaux, those with coveted Michelin Stars and Michelin Bib Gourmands and those that fall within the respected 3AA Red Star, 4AA and 5AA Star category.

Silvert Service invests in information technology and advertising media, to ensure clients and candidates receive the appropriate profiling. Candidates regardless of the outcome have their CV’s re-formatted at no cost. Where possible each candidate is met in person, but if not, the minimum requirement is a Skype video interview.

At Silvert Service, we believe that recruitment within our industry is personal and specific and our mission statement is simply to “define service excellence.”
