Having the right people is paramount to the success of any bar or restaurant, which is why recruitment is at the heart of what we do at Eighty-Six. Our recruitment process is not only personal for the candidate – it is second to none in finding you the perfect fit for your role.


Initial Chat With You

We will use our hospitality and recruitment experience to thoroughly understand the role you're looking to fill to help us find the calibre of candidate you're looking for

The Hunt is On

We have our ear to the ground for industry movement to ensure you have the pick of the bunch, as well as using all major hospitality job boards, social channels and our database to capture active candidates


From applications, our database and candidates we've headhunted, we create a longlist of candidates who tick your boxes. We then call and screen every candidate on the list to make sure they're right for you


Reference Checks

We will contact previous employers of the candidate for references, before sending you formatted, easy-to-read references for your peace of mind when choosing the successful candidate

Send to You

We send over the few candidates who we know are a great match for you – not a bucketful of candidates we hope might be. We will arrange interviews and any preliminary work on your behalf with candidates


From that longlist we create a shortlist of candidates with whom we conduct face-to-face interviews. During this process, we ensure their experience and attitude fit the culture and values of your business

Signed, Sealed, Delivered – They're Yours!

Your chosen candidate will arrive in a branded, Eighty-Six Recruitment box on the morning of their start-date, ready to be opened and begin their first shift.

Ok, so maybe not... but we will make sure everything is organised and ready for the candidate to start, removing as much stress from the process for you as possible
