Rosewood London

The Brief

Catapulting Rosewood London to globally establish the brand as a leading global 5-star hotel

Spayse was approached by the Rosewood London, pre-opening, to assist with the search for a Culinary Director. The brief was simple: to find a person that could help put Rosewood London on the map, not just in the London market, but catapult Rosewood globally and establish the brand as a leading global 5-star hotel product.

Our Approach

Our approach

First, we created a set of competencies against the role. These were skills and behaviours that that the ideal candidate would possess.

The team then spent time manually mapping out key culinary leaders in the industry not only on our database, but also searching for candidates that weren’t – not just in the UK but globally. This was not a position that would be filled by means of just placing an advert.

We then interviewed several shortlisted candidates to ensure a perfect fit. At Spayse, we don’t just screen candidates like most of our competitors, we interview potential candidates in full against a roles competency. In a competency-based interview, questions are designed to assess a candidate’s strengths and weaknesses in the key competencies required by the role.

Finally, we selected what we deemed were the best two candidates for the role and sent them to Rosewood.

The Result

The Result

Rosewood completed the interviewing process with guidance from Spayse; and a hire was made.

Since then, Rosewood has, as per the brief, placed itself firmly on the map as one of the best respected 5-star hotel brands in the world attracting the best people to their brand.
