Hotels, cafes and restaurants, in particular, are "desperate for suitable staff," says Hamish Aitcheson, business broker at Link Business. "But where there is a crisis there is also a business opportunity--and filling this particular need will be a good thing for somebody out there."
One New Zealand hospitality recruitment business, Hospoworld, has helped businesses to deal with the challenge of filling open positions.
"The reason it does so well is that increasingly restauranteurs, cafe owners and hotels are turning to third party recruiters, such as Hospoworld, to find the right human resources," Aitcheson says. "This can be evidenced by the company experiencing its busiest ever month just recently in May 2018."
