Recruitment specialist TeamJobs has recently appointed Gemma Vincent, a former sales manager for Holiday Inn Edinburgh.
The newest member of TeamJobs’ Hospitality division, Gemma will recruit for senior, permanent positions for high-profile clients including BH Live, Hilton and AFC Bournemouth. Having spent the past 14 years with the IHG Hotels Group, Gemma started as a receptionist at the Holiday Express Poole, where she climbed the ladder to become Senior Guest Service Manager, later moving north of the border to become Sales Manager for IHG’s Holiday Inn Edinburgh.
Now back in Dorset, she commented on her new role: “It’s a big move from hotel sales into recruitment, but I think my experience in hospitality stands me in perfect stead to find the very best candidates for TeamJobs’ clients.”
TeamJobs has its headquarters in Poole and was named Company of the Year in the Dorset Business Awards 2015. It moved its growing hospitality and commercial divisions to Hinton Road, Bournemouth in 2016 due to increased demand from hoteliers and restaurants.
Gemma added: “I’ve had a really warm welcome from all the team here. They are great at what they do and are really making a name for themselves in a highly competitive industry. They also do a lot for the community and I was thrilled to be asked to join them in running for Dorset Cancer Care Foundation in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival in October.”
TeamJobs Managing Director, Jason Gault, said: “Gemma brings a wealth of knowledge to TeamJobs. She is also a very friendly and approachable person with a genuine love of the hospitality industry. She will be a great asset to the team.”
