Take the pressure off. Let our catering recruiters find the professionals you need
Catering is such a special segment of the hospitality profession. Who puts it all on the line – making a guarantee that an off-premise event will be flawless, knowing that if the team leaves one item behind it could be disastrous? Caterers.
While restauranteurs and hoteliers have their work cut out for them, caterers work in the middle of a park, in a museum, or on the beach. You contend with weather, bridezillas, and staff call-offs…and you do it with grace. Not an easy way of life!
At SHS, we know what that’s like. We’ve walked in your clogs. We’ve done onsite and off-premise gigs, events, festivals, weddings, and we have the “war stories” to prove it. So when you’re looking for specialized catering talent, you know we can screen out the wanna-be’s and present you with the “A Players.”

Catering Sales Manager
When you consider hiring a Catering Sales Manager the first thought is, “They need to have a book of business.” We get it. You want them to hit the ground running. Posting a job will not attract those high performers, but we know how to get their attention.
SHS has boosted revenue for dozens of catering companies through the placement of high-performing catering sales professionals. We serve caterers of all shapes and sizes - from the independent family-run business to national enterprises, and everywhere in between. We will access those top performers in your market and confidentially source the best fit for your company. And they will hit the ground running for you!
It’s not enough just to have “hotel experience,” and “restaurant experience” does not prove a candidate can handle the unique pressures of catering. You need management talent that is either proven in catering, or has the pedigree and experience to transfer their skills to catering. SHS will provide a short list of top local candidates within one week of launching your search. We’ll get you interviewing qualified candidates for the following positions:
- Catering Manager
- Operations Managers
- Banquet Manager
- Logistics Manager
- Purchasing Manager
- Kitchen Manager
