Hospitality Passion



More than 20 years serving the hotel industry leaders

For many of us, recruitment is the art of matching a job profile to a specific environment-  whether it is a hotel or restaurant opening, reorganization, modernizing, change of a business concept or decreasing activity.
At ITC Development, 20 years of recruitment consultancy, with more than 1000 candidates placed in some of the major brands of the sector, brings in a strong conviction and belief : recruiting is not only harmonizing a profile to an organization but above all having the candidate’s aspirations and skills linked to that organization. 
Recruiting is also allowing the candidates to position themselves effectively on the labour market as regards wages ,  training and experience …

A priori

Here is a rundown of a few generally accepted ideas on head hunting and recruitment

Drawing on its 22 years of experience, ITC Development has always been at the forefront of innovative change within its field, especially in headhunting.Through our network of friends and our extensive knowledge of the hospitality sector, we check the career paths (backgrounds…). Moreover, the networks like Facebook, linkedin or Viadeo can be effective weapons for crossing informations.
On average, the recruitment (with ITC Development) takes 2 to 4 weeks to complete.
This is not true. First, it is not a luxury : the recruitment is guaranteed and the cost  is reasonable. Secondly, the independent companies make 40% of our turnover.  Query us ! We will be happy to assist you.
When searching for executives, our first priority is to get to know our customers intimately, with the purpose to become familiar with their culture, management style, market segments and their history.
Although we possess a strong candidacy bank, our expertise being headhunting, we seek and find candidates wherever they are. Head hunting is not only reserved for senior executives.
In recent years, many people without experience or training have improvised headhunters relying on social networks. Our consultants are well known and identified in the hospitality industry and all are from higher education. More than 25 years at the top, it’s not a coincidence.


Our values


  • Hospitality is a gateway to the world, a dynamic field that is open to the rest of the world and facing the future head on.
  • In Hospitality industry, “People First”: the sole criterion for selection is the suitability of any applicant for the job regardless of ethnic origin, religion, sex, marital status or disablement.
  • Passion : for us, is not only are the right professional skills crucial, but passion and optimism
  • Kindness : We are sensitive to the kindness of the people.
  • We advise the client (We make a statement on the compatibility of the candidate with the function, team and company culture, with a final recommendation, suitable or unsuitable for the function) but in the final analysis, it’s the client who’s going to decide who they’re going to hire
  • Company managers cannot demand almost irrational loyalty from employees when they themselves are disloyal ( i.e.the manager fails to meet its commitments)
  • Candidate : You have to be able to become a smaller part of something that you hope will become a success story, as opposed to being a big part of a failure
  •  Candidate : Pay is certainly a factor, but in many cases, it should not be the only motivator
