Our primary goal is to ensure our clients Hire the Best.


“We were impressed by The Alfus Group’s thorough attention to detail, particularly with each Position Profile they created. These comprehensive Profiles had to then be approved by various entities involved with our hiring process, which caused delays. Despite this, we still received highly qualified candidates almost immediately, and successfully filled both positions in a timely fashion.


We continue to use The Alfus Group for other positions in Hotel, Catering and Restaurant Operations. Their high level of professionalism and consistent results allow us to recommend them with the strongest conviction.”


"We hired The Alfus Group to find an Executive Chef for our boutique luxury resort in The Bahamas. This property is in a remote area with high-end clientele, so candidates would need to adapt to logistical challenges, while still upholding the highest standards for cuisine and service. The recruiter offered support and guidance every step of the way, even flying down to participate in the final tastings on property. We are very pleased with the way The Alfus Group conducted this search, and would absolutely recommend them to our colleagues in the hospitality industry."
