As General Manager, one of my key focuses to ensure a successful opening of our new resort was to
recruit “Talent with attitude”. What I mean by that is people with engaging charismatic personalities,
brimming with confidence. Technical ability can be taught, character cannot.
7 Dimensions Recruitment were able to introduce to us a good pool of such talent and those recruited
have made a meaningful impact on our guest enjoyment.
Ellie is a professional who cares about the recruiter, just as much as she does about the welfare of those recruited.
I highly recommend 7 Dimensions Recruitment
