Further broadening its overall product offering and filling what it describes as a vacuum in the current Australian tourism industry job environment, TMS Asia-Pacific has established a dedicated hospitality sector executive search service.

TMS General Manager Australia/New Zealand, Fujio Shibata said the prime function of the  was to fill a gap on the industry recruitment scene where companies in the hospitality sector are once again struggling to establish find head count  as job numbers once again begin to outstrip available candidates.

Shibata will initially take personal responsibility for the new desk assisted by recently appointed Remi Descamps as Team Leader Hospitality who has joined the company after a three-year stint as a recruitment consultant specialising in executive F&B placement for Sydney-based Hostec.

Shibata himself has a strong background in international hospitality sector recruitment.

Prior to his appointment he was employed as Regional Director – International Markets for the Melbourne-based Manhattan Group, a specialist hotel sector search organisation focusing on appointments within the four and five star hotel sector.

“The new service is aimed at offering options not readily available to companies in the hospitality sector in this country,” he said.

“We look forward to partnering with leading hospitality organisations to meet their demand for sourcing experienced talent.”
