LUCKYLINK Press Release Spring 2017

The recruitment industry is not spared by a world redefined by technology, and no one is disrupting traditional recruitment agencies like LUCKYLINK.

Since its launch in 2014, LUCKYLINK has been providing the most sought after hospitality recruitment network by signing up top venues in London to source certified candidates.

With a vigilant screening process of all its potential employees, LUCKYLINK offers the most qualified candidates for the best roles. From waiters, baristas, barbacks and kitchen porters to head chefs, mixologists, sommeliers and front of house managers, LUCKYLINK’s advanced technology automatically schedules interviews on behalf of its members after intelligently matching candidates to relevant vacancies.

Murphy Mary, Restaurant Manager of L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon says:

“Straight after becoming a member of the network, 5 interviews were automatically scheduled in my calendar with candidates already screened and certified by LUCKYLINK. I made 3 offers and eventually hired two amazing staff, trained and already operational for the floor. Revolutionary!”

The LUCKYLINK platform is used by hundreds of London’s leading venues such as L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, Gordon Ramsay, Tom’s Kitchen in Somerset House, Iberica, The Dorchester Collection and Novus Leisure. By such praise from some of the biggest names in the hospitality industry, the success of LUCKYLINK speaks for itself.

LUCKYLINK is becoming known in the industry as the Uber and Airbnb of the hospitality recruitment world and is putting into question the relevance of recruitment and staffing agencies.

Roddy Watt, CEO of the Hotel Management Company says:

“Having founded and managed the UK’s largest hospitality recruitment business for more than 20 years, I must say LUCKYLINK delivers tremendous value for money. It cuts down massively on time, resources and money spent on traditional recruitment agencies and is a great way to source quality candidates very quickly.”

LUCKYLINK is the pioneer of Hospitality Technology (HosTech) in the UK with its innovative online and mobile platform including chat messenger, video introductions, CV viewer and interview scheduler. These features have allowed venues such as the recently opened MNKY HSE in Mayfair & Tom Seller’s OURS in Knightsbridge to recruit exclusively using the app and negating the need to go through agencies.

Tawa Tanye Assistant Restaurant Manager of MNKY HSE says:

LUCKYLINK not only screens our candidates to certify they speak English and if they’re eligible to work in the UK but they also make sure they have the right attitude and respect basic hospitality standards. It is also highly reactive when it comes to organise our interviews and trial shifts. A big-time saver for us, busy hospitality professionals.”

Unlike other countless job websites and apps, LUCKYLINK focuses on quality over quantity. It is creating the most effective network that makes hiring and finding a job quick and easy.

To perfectly secure the recruitment of qualified candidates to current vacancies, LUCKYLINK’s algorithms, namely the matchmaking and performance ranking scores, automatically inspect and rank all the members available in the network. Criteria such as eligibility to work in the UK, English language level, number of years of experience in relevant venues, contract types, availabilities and skill requirements are taken into account.

In addition to screening candidates, LUCKYLINK also promotes a strict policy when it comes to professional etiquette. Leveraging the wisdom of their peers, employers flag candidates for inappropriate behaviour, responsiveness, no show or punctuality that will appear against the candidate’s performance ranking in the search results on the app.

Founded by Ben Kaminsky, LUCKYLINK is the culmination of his experience in data analytics, business intelligence and innovative organisation coupled with his knowledge and connection within the world of hospitality and service.

“LUCKYLINK has always been about linking up the members of our network thanks to an ‘invisible lucky hand’. In 2017, we will catalyse even more lucky connections with artificial intelligence.

Ben Kaminsky, Founder & CEO of LUCKYLINK Recruitment Network
