Melbourne, we are open!

We are delighted to announce that our new office is officially open for business!


The Victorian hospitality industry has long been a strong recruitment focus for Hastings People. Now is opening its doors towards recovery, Hastings has put a brand-new Melbourne office in place.


“We have had a number of great working relationships with some of the premium hospitality businesses in Victoria for some time” said Hastings Managing Director Luke Butler.


“I think now is the perfect time for Hastings to cement these relationships with a fully-staffed Melbourne office. It demonstrates our commitment to support the recovery of the hospitality industry right here in Victoria.”


The talent shortage continues to be a major challenge facing the staffing of hospitality operations as the recovery progresses. The cessations of international tourism and other Covid-related issues have placed immense pressure on the pool of people available to fill these new positions.


“We recognise this but there’s nothing to be gained by sitting on our hands! That’s why we have developed unique strategies and new recruitment methodologies to help our clients successfully address these problems,” said Butler.


Hastings’ new Melbourne office extends their footprint to the entire East Coast of Australia. All along the way, we will continue to provide the highest professional support to hospitality operators across Australia.
